FYI: Tixati (the official portable package) is not completely stealth, it registers Magnet-Links, Torrents and "dsc" in the registry.

The portable x64 version (Q-Dir_Portable_x64.zip) is available for download.

Well, i found the solution myself. Don't know if this option is new or not but its the first time i noticed. So, when dragging files into another window or tab in Q-dir, at the bottom it says "Start drop in new process"! (and recycle bin and email aswell) ha! and just drop it on this button.. nothing will freez! magic :) Thanks anyway folks.
Q-dir is great.

The Q-Dir 64 installer 6.47 is not installing, last time there was also a problem with the 64 installer. They should be checking first before releasing the installer.

Quick Cliq v2.1.0 New

joby_toss on 22 Feb 2017
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 14 Sep 2015
  • Suggested by I am Baas

Quick Cliq is a portable menu based application launcher and productivity tool that speeds up your daily computer activities by giving you links to folders, files, programs, links, and command line operations as well as window management, extreme clipboard manipulation, and “Memos” that hold frequently used bits of text, like e-mail signatures. All of this is provided in a compact menu that you can show anywhere and within any application or window without even taking your hand off the mouse. Because the menu is hidden when not in use it does not take up your valuable screen real estate, but stays on alert and shows quickly when it’s needed via a hot key or mouse gesture. The system requirements for Quick Cliq are extremely minimal and can operate well on even the oldest and slowest machines.

shows up in Task Manager for me in WinXP and easy to terminate. Also has an icon in the tray, and can close it there too, so they must have fixed something.

Great little clock, thank you!

v3.71 freezes on three different machines using Windows 8.1. One of them nicely provided a blue screen after running for about 5 minutes.
