Then uTorrent arrived, and I stuck with it for the low resource usage.

I like this program a lot. Unfortunately it has stopped working on my W7 32bit computer. This has happened befor but then I could get it to work again by running it under XP SP3 compatibility mode, but now nothing helps to get it to work again. This is precisely the kind of software ons does NOT want to stop working. All my data are in the database and I cannot reach it anymore.

I don't think it is portable. I just reinstalled Windows 7 and after launching Process Explorer i found that all settings are lost.

Midas on 2019-04-05 07:21

@Peter202: as noted above, Process Explorer saves settings to the Windows registry so is in fact not conventionally portable. It has been allowed, though, due to its nature and the trivial settings kept. If you want complete portability, check the Portable Apps package, also linked in the entry.

I like this software but it has some bugs.

qj3328 on 2019-10-31 00:35

I have been using FreeCommander for many years and it is, simply, outstanding. To not have a real file manager is a misfortune; to be without FreeCommander is to be handicapped. Over time I have introduced many new users to FreeCommander and the results are always the same after several weeks of use - fascination that they ever managed to function with that Windows File Explorer thing. I had moved to FreeCommander when the old Xtree/XtreeGold file manager was no longer functional in Windows, and other file managers were not handling the complex file management work regularly encountered. At first, the two default panes in FreeCommander seemed odd. Though one pane can be disabled or hidden, dual panes grow quickly on the user until one realizes - wait, how can anyone function with a file manager that has just one pane?

Free Download Manager (FDM) is a feature-rich tool for handling and accelerating downloads. Includes a site explorer, offline website downloader, scheduler, video downloader (YouTube, Google Video etc.), BitTorrent support and more. An included media file preview prevents downloading mislabeled music or video while a ZIP file preview tool saves download time and bandwidth by selectively removing unneeded parts. A hash check capability can verify downloads and the program can be controlled remotely over the Internet (fdmwi.exe).

Especially useful to overcome unreliable/slow connections that require frequent download restarts, when bandwidth is at a premium, or for very large files.

Alternatively, Free Download Manager Portable is available, as well as a "lite" version, which has not been tested for portability.

NOTE: The program will now prompt for upgrade to the newest version on startup, which is not portable (thanks Joby) and uses a closed-source license.

By the author of Ubiquitous Player:

I've decided to stop updating this program. In 3 years I received exactly zero feedback on it, so I guess no one really uses it.

Thanks.

shnbwmn on 2016-05-17 21:37

So ... is this program being actively developed again now?

MIKLO on 2016-08-23 14:32

WOW this is still being updated I'm surprised but anytime someone is willing to improve their software 4me its a good thing. I used this some time back it does a lot of things but to me is just way to busy although it did work well when I used. :)

There are a lot of great ways to compress files and folders quickly and easily, but most people are only familiar with ZIP. PeaExtractor's broad support means that it frees us up to send the latest and best compression formats without wondering if the recipient will have difficulty opening it.

XYplorer has a strange support for unicode - it can manipulate files with unicode characters (In particular, Georgian unicode characters) in their filenames, i.e. it can show, copy, move, delete, etc. them, but when I try to rename a file, it writes just "question marks" instead of characters.

And this applies to both free and paid versions.

bawldiggle on 2019-12-15 03:03

Unfortunately free version is so old it has not kept pace with PRO.
v17.40.0100 PRO did not have GUI customization, where as current PRO does.
Options are an eye watering 975 settings
MenuBar Menus are sooo long they dont fit on my 23" monitor
The original developer does not know how to "hide" irrelevant menu-items,
to minimize user shock

freakazoid on 2019-12-16 04:18

@bawldiggle AFAIK, XYPlorer doesn't have a free version anymore. The developer stopped supporting it awhile ago. All efforts now are to the PRO version.

Perhaps Just Manager became public too late as it is unlikely to see any new releases in the future. At least billon, Checker and SYSTEM will be spared the effort to update the entry. Although labelled Alpha, Just Manager seems to be very stable and the built-in FTP client works fine.

Great for bare bones Windows PE, it runs without any dependencies, it seems, very useful in x64, too bad it's not supported anymore...

Both EXE appear to be 64 bit

Guido76 on 2016-10-04 07:21

Probably a great tool, but .. how to get a .txt file of my bookmarks, furthermore, compatible with this software ...? I searched a lot, but I have not yet found the solution with Firefox: I only get a .json files... Or build itself the file with a text editor ? then you no longer need myFavs!

vmars316 on 2017-01-07 19:01

curly: now has 32 bit myFavs.exe & source
Guido76: You can just create a new myFavsLinks.txt with notepad . But be sure to
use the delimeter [ ] after each field: MenuName[]LinkDescription[]LinkAddress[] & also read the Help . But the best and safe way is to just add your links to myStarterLinks.txt example file . Then save it as (whatever) Guido76Links.txt .
Thanks

AdvancedWinServiceManager v3.5

webfork on 27 Mar 2016
  • 448KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on
  • Suggested by guinness

AdvancedWinServiceManager is a system service manager that focuses on third party services as a way to help determine (and disable) malware services. Because programs installed as a Service run at startup and have higher privileges, they are ideal locations for malware.

By default, the program only shows third party services along with more details such as Company Name, Description, Install Date, File Path, etc in one place. This helps in quickly differentiating between legitimate and malicious services. It comes with rich features such as detecting hidden rootkit services, exporting the service list to html-based log file, displaying only third party services etc.
