Driver Magician Lite v4.98 Updated

Driver Magician Lite identifies all the hardware in your system, extracts the associated drivers and backs them up to a location of your choice. Later, when you need to reinstall/upgrade Windows, you can restore all the saved drivers just as if you had the original driver diskettes in your hands. This is especially useful if you inherited an old machine or bought a white box system and did not receive all the original driver discs.

Stealth: ? No

With 4.76, I did not find any entries in the registry. Nor did it remember the last backup folder.

I was just wondering what is wrong with backing up the drivers using Windows itself? That's what I've been doing for a long time. If I ever need to reinstall a driver, I just point Windows to the folder where all the drivers are backed up, and Windows will find and install the specific driver(s). Why would you even need this program at all? Make a new folder on your C drive (I find that easiest), then just run an administrator command prompt, and run the following command: dism /online /export-driver /destination:"C:\New Folder" Windows will back up your drivers, and you can then copy/cut/rename the new folder to whatever/wherever you want. Works for me.

I've been using Revo for a very long time and it does everything I want and need it to do. I have not seen any other Un-installer anywhere near as good as Revo. Thanks to the makers for some great software, I appreciate your hard work, and it’s portable :)

Windows System Control Center v4.0.5.3 Updated

billon on 8 Jul 2020
  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 8 Jul 2020
  • Suggested by joby_toss

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.

  • 2MB (uncompressed)

  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

Autoruns shows programs that run during system bootup or login, as well as entries in the order Windows processes them. These programs include ones in your startup folder, Run, RunOnce and other Registry keys. You can configure Autoruns to show other locations, including Explorer shell extensions, toolbars, browser helper objects, Winlogon notifications, auto-start services and much more. Autoruns goes way beyond the MSConfig utility.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).

Alternatively, Autoruns Portable is stealth and will only show the EULA once.

Autoruns v13.80 released 11SEP2017

SysInternals' changelogs, scrimpy as they used to be, have disappeared altogether.

See gripes about SysInternals' site recent overhaul...:-(

I'll be damned ! Sysinternals' utilities changelogs ersatz have not quite vanished, after all,
but are definitely (deliberately?) well hidden from sight:

Though v. 13.93 is available here, at Portable Freeware, the MS site only has v. 13.91 . Is this version again being recalled by MS?
