Note: Was literally thinking why has NirSoft not add a new program in a while and voila there it was!

Great add. There are a lot of programs that do this but it looks like the Nirsoft version does a few more things.

I've been using X-Pass (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=309) with some success, but Nirsoft's is clearly better.

The year (2010) is nearly over and NirSoft has developed many new applications, more than the initial 10 suggested in the original post. But I can't help wondering that WakeMeOnLan hasn't been posted yet, despite 11 days remaining. Plus, exactly one year ago was when he showcased his new creations for the following year, yet they haven't surfaced on his blog yet.

Seems a new blog post has been posted! I took the details directly from the blog post, but I recommend visiting the post to get a better idea.

1. WhatIsHang: Sometimes, a Windows software hangs, the user interface doesn't respond anymore, and you cannot find out what is cause for the problem (In fact, even my own utilities may hang in some circumstances).
This new utility will try to detect the software that is currently hang, and it'll display some information that may allow the user to understand what exactly cause the software to hang.

2. Password Security Scanner: As you probably know, I already have some unique utilities that can extract passwords that are stored by the operating system and other applications. As opposed to all my other tools, this utility won't display the passwords at all, but instead, it'll display general information about the security of the password: Password Length, Password Strength, Number of numeric/lowercase/uppercase characters, and more...
The idea behind this tool is to allow one person to check whether other people (family members, friends, or employees) use passwords that are secured enough (and warn them if they are not), but without having the ethics problem of watching the passwords of others.

3. Network statistics utility: Many people requested to add more information into my CurrPorts utility, like number of sent/received packets, total packets size, and so on. However, this information cannot be added without a using device driver. Also, CurrPorts is only designed to display TCP/UDP information, while there are other types of network packets that won't be displayed by CurrPorts.The new network statistics utility (If I'll really create it) will capture every packet on your network adapter with WinPCap driver or with Microsoft Network Monitor Driver. it'll detect the protocol, addresses, and ports of the packet, and then it'll be updated in the statistics table that will display the number of packets, data size, data speed, and other information for every protocol/network address.

4. Wireless networks statistics utility: A utility that will capture all wireless raw packets while the wireless card is in 'Monitor Mode' and will display general statistics about the wireless activity in your area, including number of packets, packets size, packets encryption, and so on.
The main problem with creating this utility is that 'Monitor Mode' is only supported starting from Windows 7/Vista (with Microsoft Network Monitor Driver), so if I develop it, many Windows XP users won't be able to use it. And... as far as I know, WinPCap driver cannot capture raw wireless packets under Windows, unless you use their AirPcap product, which is very expensive.

5. Simple Network Inventory Tool: A simple tool that will collect basic hardware/software information from multiple computer on your network, like disk size, memory, processor name, Windows service pack/version, IE version, Firefox version, and so on... and it'll display it in a simple flat table to easily view and compare the software/hardware that you currently have on your computers.

6. Password Recovery from External Drive: I constantly get requests from people that their old drive cannot boot anymore and they want to extract their passwords from it. Some of my password recovery tools can already do that, and others cannot.
I'm considering to create one tool that will be able to extract most types of passwords from external drive, but... because Microsoft made a significant change in their password encryption starting from Windows 7, my current code cannot extract the passwords of Windows 7 from extenal drive, and upgrading my code to work with Windows 7 might be a long process.
