v26.1.0 released !

SYSTEM on 2016-09-21 12:38

As of Firefox 49, Firefox requires SSE2 just like Pale Moon. Thus, there are no longer differences in system requirements between Firefox and Pale Moon. I dropped all the text about Pale Moon's system requirements.

@Fred, I use Safarp to remove Java updates all the time.

Try "Remove (quiet mode)"; works great.

I generally use Revo (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1398) to make sure files are removed but to get multiple programs off quickly, I use FreeUninstaller (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=1350), which has a local and online search, use frequency, website, and other features.

For sure a must-have utility. Basic enough still (luckily) but with great potential. A very big time saver especially in corporate environments where you can have a deep folder structure to switch quick to your favourite folders. Very useful also when saving files to folders and you what to access that folder quickly to save. In active development. Check it out. The smalest and back-to-basic programs are often the best ones in general. This one belongs to the list.

cybermcm on 2016-10-17 06:42

I used Folders Popup before and now switched to Quick Access Popup due to the active development. QAP is a very handy tool to save time navigating through your file structure. My middle mouse button is now a productive one. I can really recommend this one!

I love this guy's lightweight and practical software so much that I've donated to him (very rare for me!). Many of his tools I see that this tool combines several of his others -- and my favorites as a trainer -- into one: AutohidedesktopIconsOK, AutohideMouseCursorOK, DontSleepOK, and others.

@Napiophelios: Likely won't work for WoW or any other network game produced after about 1999, because they look for game activity (positions and actions and other more clever things) for determining idle players, which has nothing to do with your computer sleeping or screensaving. Pressing F15 (which is what I assume this program does once per 59 seconds) has nothing to do with gameplay so it won't reset any idle timer on the server side.

I can't get this software to work at all. Have reverted to PhonerLite, which has a clumsy interface but works OK. I like the neat gui for MicroSIP, but can't make outgoing calls at all, getting a 'connection timeout' message; and after answering an incoming call, can neither hear or be heard by caller.
Bizarre; use the same settings as for PhonerLite, and when MicroSIP is running, it registers with my VOIP provider (Sipgate) OK, but ... zilch!

In spite of the adware issues, I think this is the easiest-to-use and to setup CPU temperature application. It's on all my PCs and I've never had a problem with it. Just set it and forget it. The digital temperature display in the system tray is very visible and useful when resource-heavy apps are running. I'm surprised this isn't rated higher.

What perplexes me about this program is its clandestine development. If one opens its history page:
http://www.eonet.ne.jp/~gakana/tablacus/history/
one will see that "Fix minor bugs" & "Minor changes" prevail but there are no details whatsoever about them.

xor on 2016-09-26 20:13

Usage of Tablacus suits me better than Q-Dir, but it started to suffer that typical 98% CPU wacko thing that chased me away, Q-Dir also continues to be buggy since XP up to Win10 at refreshing the folders tree after deletion, renaming, etc (some times). I'm started to get suited with Double commander although still missing Drag-Select.

ripu on 2016-10-14 14:42

@xor I am not sure if I understand you. But, refreshing in general spikes the cpu. If I am at the desktop, without opening any software and start hitting refresh, the cpu will be at 99%.

FileOptimizer v9.60 Updated

billon on 18 Feb 2017
  • 109MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 18 Feb 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

FileOptimizer is a broad format file compression tool used to reduce file size without changing the quality, known as "lossless." This is done via wide variety of optimization and recompression tools and techniques. Original files are sent to the recycle bin for restoration in the event the uncompressed version is preferred. A long list of supported formats include audio/video (MP3, OGG, M4A), image (GIF, JPEG, PNG), office formats (DOCX, XLSX, ODT, PDF), and system files (DLL, EXE).

Supports drag-and-drop of files into the window or onto the program icon. Note that by default the program removes metadata for many file types. This information reduces overall file size and protects privacy but is important to some users (e.g. photographers) and file search tools.

A 64-bit version is available within the folder, the author reports the program is functional in WINE, and can be used on the command line.

What's new?
  • Brand new FileOptimizer icon.
  • Added descriptions in INI file to make it easier and safer to be modified.
  • Migrated from smpdf to cpdf.
  • Fixed:
    • A bug that could show optimized sizes larger than original, when the plugin execution increased it. It was only cosmetic, and optimized size, never was larger:
    • Not properly passing PDF profile to Ghostcript.
  • Ghostrcript is automatically disabled when no downsampling is selected, because it is always downsampling images even if -dDownsampleColorImages=false -dDownsampleGrayImages=false -dDownsampleMonoImages=false are specified.
  • Make sure TempDirectory is created to avoid certain plugins crash.
  • Patched Guetzli and Mutool plugins to be compatible with Windows XP.
  • Switched to libwebp without WIC codes to keep Windows XP compatibility.
  • Updated:
    • UPX to 3.93;
    • libwebp to 0.6.0 RC3;

Annoyingly, SysInternals' powers-that-be no longer deem worth their while to provide a changelog of their recent releases.

Current cases in point: ProcessMonitor v3.30, AutoRuns v13.62,

Sloppy version control management, if you ask me...:-(

On a positive point, they resumed adjusting correctly the internal PE tags version numbering of their updated utilities, which proved rather baffling for a while

(see smaragdus' related post:

Regrettably, some of SysInternals' recently updated tools now fail to run under WinXP......:-(
(e.g. Procmon v3.30 fails under winXP, despite the "Process Monitor runs on Windows XP SP2"
plain statement found in the Procmon.chm HTML help file)

Cases in point:
ProcessMonitor fails as of v3.30 (blue screen crash, last XP working version v3.20)
SigCheck fails as of v2.40 (last XP working version v2.30)

MIKLO on 2016-08-29 18:10

@ __philippe do you know is there gonna be any effort made to correct this? I'm kinda surprised cuz I have always thought of SysInternals as being a first rate top notch entity, but they are not showing that in this case.Even if the changelogs are only interesting or necessary to a few people in my opinion that reason enough to continue with accurate data.

useless. to most of us, PORTABLE requires us to be able to run as NON-ADMIN. can't use this. can't install it. not truly portable. don't get me wrong, I use it all the time on my cluster at home, just can't use this at work or on common machines at school.

dany on 2011-10-27 15:15

@Cattleya: Make sure you download the zip package, because the installer does the following:
"The kernel mode driver used by CPU-Z is installed on the system, that avoids to install / remove it at every run."
The portable version leaves no driver behind, just tested it.

@kc: I used to do sysadmin for a small non-profit org. 7 pc's and 2 printers, no big deal. I carried all my tools on a pendrive. Off course I had admin-rights, but this is a typical scenario a lot of us are in, so it's not entirely useless, portable is the way to go for sysadmins ;)

This program I wrote in 2008 and I am developing it until today. It cost me a LOT of work and time. And you write that you do not respect me and my work, only because I've added the "Facebook button" to the toolbar. Thank you very much!

smaragdus on 2017-02-21 04:56

@jack
First- I do not know you and I have nothing against you. I suppose you may be a very nice guy. Nothing personal here. My sister uses Facebook and I have no respect for her because of that. The same applies to my niece and to anyone who uses Facebook, I make no difference between family, friends, acquaintances. If Jesus Christ was using Facebook I would not have any respect for him either. I make no exceptions. I believe that Facebook is evil and that anyone who uses it is an accomplice in spreading of evil. I have the same attitude towards those who use Windows 10 because I believe that it is evil as well. There are two users at the forum who I know that they use Windows 10- they are nice, they have helped me a lot, I like them, I am thankful to them for their help but I do not respect them either just because by using Windows 10 they accept evil and help evil propagate. I also had Facebook but I deleted my account because if I had kept using it would have lost respect for myself. Anyway, I appreciate your work as developer of free programs. In case some day you decide to delete your Facebook account I will provide the link I once used below:

Solved: the download on the portable freeware site does not include a file "todolist.exe.manifest" that is required to run on XP. If you have an existing earlier version of todolist, it will have a file "todolist.exe.xp.manifest". Dan the developer advises to rename that to "todolist.exe.manifest". Seems to work.

Hi Kanu,

You wrote : "The author says the program doesn't write in other places that in his own folder."

Sorry, but I never said that : HamMultiPlayer needs to decompress files to be able to work and it does that inside "%temp%\HAM\". This directory is used to store HMP_mplayer.exe + MediaInffo.dll and 4 ini files. If you use HamCpu, HamMultiPlayerCPU.exe will be decompressed too. If you use thumbnails display, thumbnails will be created inside the same path and deleted when you stop using it...
The only exception is when you select "SaveBeside" in prefs. In this case, prefs file is saved beside HamMultiPlayer (in same directory for reasons of portability).
Portable means "no installation", not "without file writing".

If nevertheless you see others files spread everywhere, please let me know and check that your version is the one coming from my web site.

Barnuble.

kanu on 2016-12-08 07:22

Sorry if I sounded hostile but the web says 'This is a "portable" software, this means that everything is already included inside the ".exe" (no installation, no registry keys, ...)'.
Those three dots means etc.; so, portable + etc means no writing beyond its own folder because that's what portable means: I can move the folder to other drive and keep the settings.

But the problem, as you pointed, was that at first I didn't tick the "Save beside" checkbox. So, my suggestion after this would be to rename that box to a more common wording. But anyway, the blame is all mine. Sorry again.

The program is very useful, by the way.

webfork on 2016-12-10 04:46

@Kanu: Different sites have different definitions for portable but here "Stealth" is the term used when a program doesn't modify files outside of it's application folder (including the registry). HamMultiPlayer is not stealth but is portable. Please post in forums if you'd like to discuss further.

... but it only mentions changes in the paid version for this release.

The freeware still provides English (American or British), French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian support only -- Hunspell compatibility is only available in the paid version.

CurrPorts v2.31 Updated

billon on 15 Feb 2017
  • 123KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 15 Feb 2017
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

CurrPorts displays the list of all currently opened networking ports on your local computer. For each TCP/IP and UDP port in the list, information about the process that opened the port is displayed, including the process name, full path of the process, version information of the process (product name, file description, and so on), the time that the process was created, and the user that created it.

In addition, CurrPorts allows you to close unwanted TCP connections, kill the process that opened the ports, and save the TCP/UDP ports information to HTML file , XML file, or to tab-delimited text file. The program will automatically mark with pink suspicious ports owned by unidentified applications (applications without version information and icons).

What this tool can that Mark Russinovich's TCPView can't do, I don't understand :?

I think that TCPView is better in any form.

@Yuval M.
You should try Sysinternals applications

I like this program. I recently used it to notice some suspicious looking port activities. I was able to close the ports down and then turn them to stealth using my firewall program. Then I used this program again and everything has looked normal ever since then. So I think this program may have helped me to stop some hackers or malware. All of my own internet activities and programs work normally so I really do think this program helped me stop something bad from happening.

With the pace of these torrential updates it is hard to keep this program up to date- *billon* updated it a few hours ago and now there is a new version- SynWrite 6.31.2510.

smaragdus on 2017-01-07 22:29

In between versions 6.31.2504 and 6.31.2506 was another one- 6.31.2505. It seems that even for the developer it is hard to keep its own change log up to date:
http://www.uvviewsoft.com/synwrite/History.txt
it does not include (so far) any information about the latest versions.

I can't extract the exe file with Universal Extractor. I get an error:
"Signature detected: Inno Setup Setup Data (5.2.4)
This is not directly supported, but i'll try to unpack it as version 5110
; Version detected: 5204

How can I extract it, then?

I used Universal Extractor to open the installer, then copied the {app} folder to my PortableApps directory on my USB drive. I renamed it to Artweaver and created the .ini file. Seems to run just fine! I guess the {embedded} directory contains license files and so forth; not necessary to run the program. Very nice!

@foxcole: click the link in 'how to extract.', you need to replace bin/innounp.exe with the latest version, yours only supports versions up to 5.1.1. Innounp version 0.36 supports unpacking version 5.4.2 Inno Setup installers.

At first look QupZilla version 2.1.0 seems to have improved significantly compared to version 2.0.2, but it uses far more resources compared to version 1.8.9. I did just a brief testing.

freakazoid on 2017-02-11 22:46

I can confirm what smaragdus said about v2.1.0.

Memory usage hovers around 120-140 MB RAM, but that is to be expected when the core engine is now updated to use QtWebEngine, which is powered by Chromium. To compare, I had an older version of Qupzilla v1.8.6 lying around and that used 210 MB RAM.

It's a good alternative to the existing Chromium-powered browsers, but if you're using a Chromium backend, you might as well use Chromium so you can gain access to the wealth of available extensions out there rather than some homebrewed versions that come with QupZilla.

osirisgothra on 2013-11-05 10:51

and a quick FYI about the comment on not having to pay for CSS editing, the "free one' in the program seems to be somewhat of a bad joke. It is a beat-around-the bush feature that lets you do something you wouldnt expect it to, and other features are just plain missing.. they may be there buried somewhere, but to a user who just installed it and is testing it out, it isn't very convincing, I did manage to find some of the features after an hour, and you shouldn't have to go into code to correct something that the editor did wrong. The spell checker seems like instead of correcting words it replaces the word and leaves the misspelled word right next to it. Like I said, maybe there is some option buried but to the new user of the product, it just doesn't do it. I ended up just writing my own simple WYSIWYG webpage editor in a few days and have the functionality i need... sheesh

webfork on 2013-11-05 22:13

osirisgothra: Every WYSIWYG editor I've worked with requires that I go back at some point and fix something in the code that the macro editor side broke. In my experience so far, BlueGriffon does some things better, some things worse. As to the CSS and rigidity, I agree, but the truth is that this is the direction Adobe went with Dreamweaver and I think BlueGriffin is trying to be an OSS alternative to that program rather than a normal WYSIWYG.

I use the following version (on XP) and see no need to update it.
If you're having problems try the old version (your problems might then be attributed to an updated OS such as Windows 7 or later, which I refuse to use, especially the buggiest of them all, Windows 10)
I see comments above about file extensions, but I've NEVER had that problem, don't those people do the "save as" button? This version has that.
When on Linux I don't need this, as it has its own text editors that are better than anything Microsoft ever issued, to start with!

This is a great tool.

Sure, Outlook can sort or search for e-mails by attachment, but I don't think it can do this across multiple mailboxes.

At work I have my own mailbox but need to access several shared inboxes. When contacts assure me they sent something, a default search in OutlookAttachView looks through every mailbox I have access to, and blindingly fast to boot.

masterjedi on 2014-02-25 04:04

If you have had an end user get mailbox is full notices and they have done EVERYTHING.. This is a great tool to show them that all items are can have attachments. Even their calendar items. Meeting invites are often sent with attachments such a agendas in word format, Power Point presentations and even the occasional picture file. This application scans them and finds them ALL. It has saved my first call resolutions stats.

I love this program. Took me a little bit to figure out how to filter by user (it seems to be visible name, not email address), but it's not hard to use and it's extremely powerful.

Aside from a few distributions, all files are stored within the Multiboot folder, making for a nicely organized Multiboot Drive that can still be used for other storage purposes. YUMI uses syslinux to boot extracted distributions stored on the USB device, and reverts to using grub to Boot Multiple ISO files from USB, if necessary.

YUMI works much like Universal USB Installer, except it can be used to install more than one distribution to run from your USB. Distributions can also be uninstalled.

SRWare Iron is a privacy-enhanced web browser based on Chromium, which is the open-source project behind Google Chrome. By default, Iron sends out less information if compared to Chrome (e.g., creating a unique user ID or the submission of entries to Google to generate suggestions), making it potentially more privacy friendly and secure in operation.

Iron supports both official and unofficial themes and some extensions from Chrome. Additionally, to enable blocking ad servers, a 'adblock.ini' is present in the program folder, and Opera's 'urlfilter.ini' can easily be converted to Iron's accepted format by following these instructions (or see comments below).

Note: It is recommended you change the homepage. The Iron default homepage may contain ads or links to fake adware-containing downloads.

version 45: No flash support whatsoever. It also disables all but a two plugins. I understand this is a security issue, however, if you do need Flash, this is not the browser for you. You cannot add Flash support to version 45 of Iron. The former plug-ins do not work, and the latest download which would be supported in Iron contains malware, checked by over 40 different engines and cannot be installed if you have ANY anti-malware engine running. If you don't, be aware you're installing malware. If you have no need for Flash or most other browser plug-ins, feel free, you'll be secure (but missing quite a bit of content.)

Alternatives: Do not update to 45. Install 43, which still supports the (old) flash players (be they however insecure.)
Chrome itself has a built in alternative to Flash in the latest version. Maybe someone will figure out how to "port" this to Iron without doing a bunch of stuff in file explorers etc.
Note: trying to install the latest Adobe Flash for Firefox crashed my XP system, XP is basically no longer supported with version 19. the latest update to Flash 18 works, however.
I have Flash disabled on all but two sites which use the older version just fine.

Just noting that Iron Portable and SRWare Iron Portable, as well as GoogleChromePortable and X-Chromium, create these registry keys:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Google\Chrome\Extensions

HKU\*\Software\Google
HKU\*\Software\Google\Chrome
HKU\*\Software\Google\Chrome\Extensions

Also note that the HKLM key is hidden in regedit. I can see it being created using Regshot and get to it and delete it with an alternate registry editor. I don't know how the key is protected. (Any info appreciated.)

The only Chromium browser that doesn't create these keys is Chromium Portable (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2169).

They also create the following folders/files:

C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data
C:\Users\*\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Crashpad

What is an "Alternate Stream" ?
Are you talking about 'streaming video' ?

Checker on 2014-01-11 00:40

@ vmars316: Alternate (Data) Streams are a data structure for holding additional structured data within a file in addition to the main data.
The Windows NTFS file system allows so-called Alternate Data Streams (ADS). With this function, data can be stored invisibly tied by the user to a file.

goodsignal on 2016-10-17 17:54

Dropbox had a bug a while back (https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Syncing-and-uploads/com-dropbox-attributes/m-p/63351) and polluted every file with an alternate data stream. Any copy action thereafter from our NTFS drive to a thumb drive (usually FAT32) was interrupted by a warning, "Are you sure you want to copy this file without its properties?" Very annoying! AlternateStreamView quickly and easily fixes the problem, as discovered here (http://superuser.com/questions/814312/is-it-possible-to-remove-the-are-you-sure-you-want-to-copy-this-file-without-it)

PhonerLite is an SIP softphone for making and receiving VoIP calls. It supports multiple SIP profiles, integrated phone book and call logging.

This software is not noisefree. Annoying and very disturbing cracks when using wifi with reduced bandwidth makes it unusable.

Phoner is at version 2.38 as of this posting. It works great from a USB stick. Tip: if you want audio ring tones and other sounds (feedback), then in menu "Options" sub-menu "Voices" change the settings for all (Incoming call, Outgoing call, Busy, etc...) from "x\install directory\Phoner\RingIn.wav" etc, to "..\Phoner\RingIn.wav" etc, etc... (without quotes). This way the sound files will work for any drive lettter your thumb drive gets allocated.

So if Stealth: "No" where it writes to then?

Bitvise SSH Client (formerly Tunnelier) is a fast, secure FTP and terminal client with a variety of "tunnel" options to create secure connections, similar to a VPN. The program can forward Windows file shares over SSH, an FTP-to-SFTP protocol bridge, port forwarding, and more. See forum discussion for adding secure FTP to existing portable software.

Includes support for single-click remote desktop forwarding for graphical server access, vt100, strong auto-reconnect, and a scriptable console-mode SFTP client. Integrated SOCKS and HTTP proxy are available for dynamic forwarding. Security measures include wide encryption protocol support including public key exchange and optional integrated compression. Supports profiles and optional encryption of local passwords.

Functional in 64-bit.
