webfork: Because it's their preferred portable build. Not everyone will need the full package. The lite / portable build should be sufficient for people building a website for testing locally and on the go.

Just for clarification, is the full version portable? Because the only version labelled "portable" at the download link appears to be the lite version, without FTP or Mail.

Note: The description should replace Oracle's MySQL with the community-based fork: MariaDB.

PageDefrag v2.32

Checker on 15 Mar 2014
  • 106KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on
  • Suggested by Hank7

PageDefrag allows you to defragment files that are normally not possible to defragment i.e. paging files, registry hives, event log files and Windows 2000/XP hibernation files. In addition, it shows the fragmentation level of these files so that you can make a decision about whether or not to defragment.


  • Speed benefits on a SSD-based (flash media) Windows installation will be minimal.
  • The program installs itself as a service and provides you with the option to run on next reboot, run with every reboot, or to remove the service. It can be run from removable media, but will modify the target machine permanently until the service is removed.

Runs on:WinNT / Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: Windows registry. But given the nature of the application, I think it can be accepted as portable.
Dependencies: Administrator rights
Stealth: ? No
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch pagedfrg.exe.

While PageDefrag does what it says, i prefer UltraDefrag.
It's GPL, but not Portable by default, last i checked.
On the flip side as making it Portable we can put the
performance-sensitive files on the fastest area on the
Drive, the beginning.
Check with Windows Defrag (dfrg.msc) first, in case the swapfile
is already near the beginning. In rare cases i've seen old
UltraDefrag versions put the swap last on the drive. ouch
As always before Defrag, i suggest running chkdsk /f.

Create this file in Notepad, Save As Unicode-format.
set UD_IN_FILTER=Pagefile;SysEvent;AppEvent;SecEvent;Windows\System32\config;ntuser;usrclass
udefrag -o -m c:
echo boot-off

ultradefrag-3.3.0.bin.i386.exe /S
copy /y ud-boot-time.cmd %windir%\System32
%ProgramFiles%\UltraDefrag\bootexctrl /r defrag_native
reg add HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce /v unud /d "cmd /c %windir%\UltraDefrag\uninstall.exe /S" /f
reg add HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce /v unuc /d "cmd /c del %windir%\System32\ud-boot-time.cmd" /f
reg add HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce /v unul /d "cmd /c del %windir%\..\fraglist.luar" /f
reg add HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce /v unug /d "cmd /c rd /s /q %windir%\UltraDefrag" /f

The path to bootexctrl may differ on UltraDefrag versions!

Run the bat and UltraDefrag runs at next reboot.
And then uninstalls next time you login.

I know this thread is a bit old now, but I wanted to comment on UltraDefrag.

It's a great application, and my preferred choice of the two as well. Thanks for your post on this u64. I wanted to note that now there is a portal version available from the sourceforge.net website for UltraDefrag, but it doesn't support boot time defrag since without installation, there would be no ud-boot-time.cmd file in the system32 directory. It can created and put in there, then the portable application will allow you to enable boot time defrag. This way you can avoid the install and uninstall with the UltraDefrag.bat script above. Good script though. But then, if it's a portable installation on a removable device, you probably shouldn't run boot time config unless that device is connected and accessible at boot time.

The program blocks IP addresses based upon a list of IP addresses collected by various methods.

Followed the instructions above but received error about unable to load kernel driver(?). Has anyone seen this and what is the way around it?
thanks in advance

It should be noted this comes without filters, and with filters the size can be roughly over 10 megs.

Nice reminisce. But a bit short and a bit slow.
