  • Added 'Skip Activity of EtwRTNT Kernel Logger.etl' option (turned on by default). The activity of this file is a side effect of the system tracing that FileActivityWatch uses to get the file activity data, so it's now hidden by default.

Another fine program from NirSoft seems to work as advertised. Will be great app to see if there is anything happening on the system that is not authorized. I like no installation required.

  • Released on 22 May 2019

Windows System Control Center (WSCC) allows you to install, update, execute and organize the utilities from various system utility suites. The program either works as an interface or as downloader. The program can work with both utilities suites downloaded or can dynamically grab and run the programs via a web connection. The included Update Manager can check for newer versions of the utilities already installed and can download and install the missing items.

Works with Windows Sysinternals and NirSoft Utilities suites, but also highlights Windows' own utilities.

Note: The setup packages are downloaded from the author's website.

Sorry, sl23, no insight on that, since I'm not a user of either SyMenu or PAF portables -- I prefer to roll my own... :)

Notwithstanding, if still interested, check the following forum topic: http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=21891 ...

The download page shows 2.5.1.0 as the freeware version, 3.0.0.0 appears to be the payware version.

  • Added 'Response Time' column, which shows the number of milliseconds between the moment that the open/read/write call was made and when the error code was returned. If the 'Response Time' value is high (e.g.: 10000 milliseconds) it means that the specified call might caused the software to hang.
