The computer POST (Power On Self Test) tests the computer, insuring that it meets the necessary system requirements and that all hardware is working properly before starting the remainder of the boot process. If the computer passes the POST, the computer will have a single beep (with some computer BIOS manufacturers it may beep twice) as the computer starts and it will continue to start normally. However, if the computer fails the POST, the computer will either not beep at all or will generate a beep code, which tells the user the source of the problem. This little utility will help you to lookup these beep codes and figure out what they represent.

All the foreground and background colors are standard. Take a look at my screenshot and you will see. Maybe something wrong with your display.

as it seems to be the case with most rizonesoft apps: can't find it on their hp anymore

The link to the author's web page is broken.
Actually it seems that rizonesoft no longer advertises this software.
The download link is broken.

Softpedia has two pages for this app:

https://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Miscellaneous/BIOS-Beep-Codes.shtml
https://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Info/Beep-Codes-Viewer.shtml

Both pages have a working download link.

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.

Nice utility but I wish I never downloaded it because I keep checking the bags and wind up deleting them all the time!There are really a lot of shellbags-everytime you open a folder it creates a bag.HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam -DELETE THE SUBKEYS,bagmru and bags then folders will be reset.Helps if windows does not remember folder settings.
