1. Are you sure these are all portable? Have you tested them in any capacity? That's a lot of work for forum members to dig through and find out about.

2. From my quick scan of the info, Quick Copy 2 Printer is probably the biggest gem out of this. If it works, there's only one other out of date program that does something similar here on PFC: OX Copy Machine http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=525

3. Text in a Zip doesn't seem very remarkable if it doesn't actually do text searches INSIDE files INSIDE the zip, although I can't seem to find a search program that indexes/searches zip files...

I was hoping that a moderator might make a contribution to this post. I certainly don't want to go through the lot but I like posts that give me the chance to look for "gems" so thanks to modussn.
By and large though, I think you can ignore ALL of the files. (pity)

Anyway, a few comments

1. Available Home Sites (just for reference):
a> Quick Shutdown (it's actually a Dimaware product called Shutdown!) has evolved on the Home Site ...

but the versions there are probably not portable.
b> reminder is also from Dimaware but is no longer available there.
c> QuickBackgammon is from ... http://www.xs4all.nl/~gverkade/quickbg/.
Latest version is 3.0.5
d> RegShot Well known - enough said
e> QFSplitter v 1.3 is from ... http://www.akcansoft.com/?s=dosyalar
f> Remove v 1.2 is from ... http://www.mikasalonen.com/products.shtmlA later version (4.0) is available on the Home Site ; it is Shareware.
g> RegFix v 0.95 (02.04.99) is from http://www.elcomsoft.com/art.html
It has evolved into a Shareware product (Advanced Registry Tracer)
h> ResizeEnable v 1.4 is available on http://www.digitallis.co.uk/pc/ResizeEnable/index.html
i> bCheck's Res-O-Matic v 5.1 is available from http://www.bcheck.net/apps/reso.htm
j> Text File Cleaver can be found on http://www.bartdart.com/
Time Worked Calculator v 2.6 can be found on http://www.geocities.com/twakil/
The one provided fails!v 2.6 is OK
k> Random Password generator from Dirk Paehl on http://www.dpaehl.de/
I'm not sure if he now provides this program; I use his curl program daily!
l> Quote of the Day is on http://thunder.prohosting.com/~ladi/
m>Time Chimes v 2.00 is on http://www.nch.com.au/timechimes/
(a later version - might be Shareware)
n> TimWi's Emboss is on http://www.lionking.org/~timwi/progs.htm
o> 3D Calendar ... WebSite of J M Falcao

2. Avoid (??!!):
a> dll finder
dll finder was a well known source of Elite Spyz 4.0 and Windows Defender doesn't like it. I don't know if it's because it recognises the name or whether it does indeed detect bad code. Not for me to find out!!

b> Shorty
This program requires wscript.exe. It is not provided and although it can be found it is a known source of trouble.
Again - not for me.

c> RegMaid
... looks dangerous to me!
modussn quotes ...
The RegMaid utility is designed to clean up invalid registry entries that are caused by deleting OLE projects that are created with Visual C++ and Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC).
Actually it deletes ALL empty Registry keys

d> sc-unimail
sc-unimail spams email recipients. Not for me

e> 9xConfig
Just look dodgy.

3. Not working:
A large number didn't work in Vista. My guess is that they wouldn't work in XP.
eg ... Thinking mans thesaurus, arachnid, quod etc etc
talksender requires non-existent website

3a Require Run-times:
Several need run-time files. I wish these had been included.

Frankly, I think modussn should have checked the programs to see that they ran and included run-times when appropriate.

4. Duplicates:
Registry Saver 1.2 & Registry Saver 2.0
AVI to MPEG1 2

5. "Gems"
None really !!

RegFix looks interesting insofar as it has evolved to Advanced Registry Tracer. It may be worth a closer look.

TalkAny(TalkIt) looks fun and professional (Microsoft release) but doesn't work in Vista even in compatibility

mode. No sound! Does anyone know why - I'd quite like to see this in action.

Just a few comments ...

1. dll finder
As I impled, Defender didn't like the name. Still I won't take chances on these sort of apps. Others might.

2. The fact that all the programs ran on modussin's sytem is a little surprising. Just one example ...Shorty really does need wscript.exe. Life's too short to explore the reasons for his success.

3. Runtime files

modussin states
Anything that needed them in the folders I included.
Take it from me that a significant number needed Runtime files which were absent.
I know that such files can be easily downloaded but it's all a pain.

My guess is that modussin has these files in the SYSTEM folder. That is certainly one approach but you're no longer aware of dependencies.

I have a similar problem with HLP files. They can't be read in Vista. I elected to download the requisite Microsoft file into the Windows folder.

4. Portability

webfork asked the very pertinent question .. Are you sure these are all portable?

I neglected to offer any opinions earlier. Let me say that I have not ReShotted any of them through lack of time and interest but whilst I suspect that few if any write to the Registry, a significant number do in fact write files (INI usually) to the Windows directory. So there is definitely a portability issue.

To take just one example ...
talksender requires a non-existent website to function; it writes a load of crap to the Windows directory and creates a desktop shortcut.
I don't understand how mondussin can get this to function at all let alone as a portable!

Finally, although I have raised some criticisms, I like these posts. Serendipity is a wonderful thing!

Product Key Finder
is a free Windows application that retrieves license key information (CD Keys) from the Windows registry. Product Key Finder currently supports retrieval of 200+ windows applications such Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat.

So what is this application all about? It actually serves several different purposes and the first one that I would like to mention is pictured to the right. I have my Windows Taskbar lined up along the right-side of my monitor so the orientation might look a little weird, but as you can see it will show you a thumbnail preview of the window as you hover over it. Sometimes it doesn’t have a preview available and I haven’t quite figured out when it does/doesn’t, but don’t worry because that is not what you’re supposed to be in awe at.

The main feature that I would like to point out is having the ability to drag items off of your Taskbar onto your Desktop. That’s right, you can easily reduce the clutter of having a huge list of open Windows by putting some of them in other locations on the screen

That is the clients would experience network access problems due to rogue DHCP server leasing incorrect IP addresses & incorrect options to the client. Security threats are caused when malicious user with rogue DHCP server can spread bad network parameters and thereby sniff the traffic sent by the clients. There are also certain Trojans like DNS-changing that uses a compromised machine in the network to pollute the network by installing rogue DHCP servers on the machine.

A utility program that gives an on-screen display and optional audible indication of the keboard Caps Lock key status.

MD5 Checker
Create MD5 hashes and check the integrity of downloaded files.

is a simple, slightly-configurable status bar for monitoring key system and network parameters. It is modeled on older status-monitoring programs such as StatBar, WinBar, and InfoBar, but without the configuration options of those other programs; it is designed for compactness and compatibility, not for turning parts on and off. The few configuration options that are present, are accessed via the icon in the system tray. You can move DerBar anywhere you want, by grabbing it and dragging it around, and it will remember where you leave it next time it runs.

Jellybean is a small, fast wallpaper shuffler, with little to no impact on system resources.

Batch Chat
is a simple single file that packs a powerful and easy to use office chat room. Simply drop the file into a shared folder and you are ready to go.

Database Browser
This easy to use tool allows user to connect to any database and browse or modify data ,run sql scripts, export and print data.

is a new rootkit detector currently in public beta. It is designed with the following goals in mind:

1. Easy to use - a user with little to no computer experience should be able to use it.
2. Powerful - it should be able to detect all publicly available rootkits.
3. Stable - it should work on as many different system configurations as possible, and, in the event of an incompatibility, not crash the host computer.
4. Safe - it will not use any rootkit-like techniques (hooking, etc.) to protect itself.

Currently, RootRepeal includes the following features:

1. Driver Scan - scans the system for kernel-mode drivers. Displays all drivers currently loaded, and shows if a driver has been hidden, and whether the driver's file is visible on-disk.
2. Files Scan - scans any fixed drive on the system for hidden, locked or falsified* files.
3. Processes Scan - scans the system for processes. Displays all processes currently running, and shows if a processes is hidden or locked.
4. SSDT Scan - shows whether any of the functions in the System Service Descriptor Table (SSDT) are hooked.
5. Stealth Objects Scan - attempts to determine if any rootkits are active by looking for typical symptoms.
6. Hidden Services Scan - scans for hidden system services.
7. Shadow SSDT Scan - counterpart to the SSDT Scan, but deals mostly with graphics and window-related functions.

OLK Finder is a small and simple utility that let you easily find the location and handle the content of MS Outlook security temp folder.

What is OLK Folder ?
When you open file attachments that are considered safe, Outlook places these attachments in a subdirectory under your Temporary Internet Files directory as an extra precaution. When Outlook first tries to use a temporary file, it determine whether or not the Temp OLK folder has already been created. If yes, it uses the folder. If no, it creates a random folder to store the files.

Add/Remove program cleaner
This program allows you to clean up the Add/Remove programs list in the control panel. It should only be used to remove entries that are broken and cannot be removed by running the uninstall program.

is a freeware application that detects what audio and video codecs are installed on a system, analyzes what codecs a certain file needs and suggests you install them. An advanced feature this application has is called the “Filter Mappings Editor” which will let you change the priority and the types of media a filter will process. This helps in solving issues created by filters where the creators made with too high of a priorty or make them try and decode formats they cannot handle perfectly.

Note Taker's main function is to assist the user in taking notes. It's main focus is on college classes, but it can work well in any type of meeting, lecture, or dictation.

Note Taker is completly FREEWARE. It does require vbrun300.dll, which can be found on our site by clicking on the dll files link on the right hand side.

Runs hidden in the background until it detects any kind of change in a directory it has been told to monitor. When a change occurs (e.g. create, delete, modify a file) it visually alerts the user.

I really wish a moderator would take a look at these posts.

I'm in two minds about them.

1. Although the early posts were not particularly good, recent posts have contained some gems (thankyou mondussn!)
2. Frankly though they haven't been researched enough.

To take a couple of examples:
RegClean was a Microsoft product; it's no longer supported and for XP users it will in some circumstances screw up your software.

ScanPro requires Excel - so not portable in a PFC sense.

Several other posted apps require Java or .NET Framework.

At the risk of sounding patronising I wish mondussn would go for quality rather than quantity!
