SyMenu SyMenu

Amazing portable menu 4 stars
SyMenu has a lot of functionality and highly configurable. Some parts are quick to learn and other may take a little time to get setup to the way you would like. But overall a really great menu system. I am working on creating a setup for all my portable programs that I use so this should come in quite handy in the execution off the USB stick. Two-Thumbs Up!

TaskSchedulerView TaskSchedulerView

Another great tool! 5 stars
Nir Sofer has created another great tool to assist in finding out what is going on in the bowels of Microsoft's Task manager. I found some tasks of software that I had uninstalled that were still running. Going through MS Task manager to find anything is a pain but this lays out all the task in one clear to read page. Now that I know what tasks I can delete which I can then use MS TM program to do so. It is nice that there is no delete function in the interface because it would be too easy to get rid of things you might need if your not careful thus messing up your system. It is best that you go through MS-TM so it is done the proper way. Two-Thumbs Up Get it, use it, rate it! Price: Free

It is the little features that add flare to already amazing program. Two-Thumbs Up! Get it, use it, rate it! Price: Free

Great utility! 5 stars
Conversion is never easy but this is really easy. It is command line implemented but it is pretty easy. There is a GUI component that you can get but the original author website no longer support it. But I did find a Italian site that still has the download. It is a great pair of the two to make it even easier to use. Two-thumbs Up! Get it, use it, rate it! Price: Free

Never10 Never10

Never 10 - works and its easy! 5 stars
I am running a Windows 8.1 box and it detect that my OS is upgradable to Windows 10. I hit the disable and I'm done. I assume it is changing some registry key(s) so that the OS will not upgrade itself. Which is find with me. Granted Windows 8.1 with Classic Shell makes it Windows 7-ish enough to be usaably functional. Overall it has been stable but I don't need Windows 10 to cause additional issues. Two-Thumbs Up!

Avidemux Avidemux

Pretty nice video editor 4 stars
I not to big into video editing but dabble in it from time to time. I found this program easy to set up. Almost everything you need to know is on the main screen. Some preference may need to be changed based on what you are looking to achieve but the default pretty much are spot on. It uses a lot of the system defaults so minimal configuration is needed. Overall it have a number of codec and modified .MP4 and .AVI files with ease. The more you use it the faster you can get what you want done. Two-Thumbs Up! Get it, use it, rate it! Price: Free

Macrium Reflect (Free Edition) Macrium Reflect (Free Edition)

Great imaging and backup utility 5 stars
This program was the only utility that I could back up a GPT partition a number of years back for a job. I tried over a dozen programs before finding this one and it worked perfectly. Since then they have improved upon it both from a file backup but for me imaging a whole drive for backup purposes and being able to restore that image quickly and easily. It has worked for my Win8 system and up without issue. Many Thanks! I give it Two-Thumbs Up! Get it, Use it, Rate it! Price: Free

URL Gather URL Gather

Pretty amazing 4 stars
URLGather is pretty great. It is able to import bookmarks from IE, Chrome, Firefox or common bookmarks html files. The search function is fast. The portable aspect is a bonus and allows you to unify all your browsers from different systems. A couple of issues and additions I would like to see to enhance this amazing tool. 1. When exporting the links as URL, if the description text string for URL exceeds 256 it should truncate it. Currently it pops up an error box notifying you of the length is too long, but after you close it it does not continue the progress bar just sits there. It would be nice if it would allow you to change it on the fly, truncate it, then at the end create a log of those that match that condition. 2. To EDIT the an URL your currently have to right-click->property. It would be nice add a hot key like F2, similar to windows rename command, to quickly edit file names. This would improve the editing to one key thus allowing to user to modify content faster. 3. SAVEs - I notice that when you import bookmarks and do your editing that it does this all in memory until you exit the program then it saves everything to Record.UGR. It would be nice to either add a save button or have an option to have it save automatically every 5 min or adjustable time interval. I like this program and hope it keeps being improved.

HDDExpert HDDExpert

Quick portable drive health checkup 4 stars
HDDExpert is a small portable tool to get a quick picture of the hard drives health. The interface is simple and displays all the needed information to determine the current state of a hard drive. It also displays the S.M.A.R.T information but to most it is meaningless numbers but the pop-up text information does help. It would be nice if it had Red-Yellow-Green on each of those S.M.A.R.T elements to get a visual on if a one or more items are getting close to their threshold. This would add addition information to help users out. I just added this to my Portable Apps list. Two-Thumbs Up! Get it, use it, rate it! Price: Free

Run-Command Run-Command

Excellent run utility!!! 5 stars
What makes this different from the normal method is the feature list and simplicity of it. The default hotkey is CTRL-R, quick execution of any given command plus the quick access to the Control Panel, command prompt, Disk Manager, Device manager, and computer managment. Under Favorites you have a whole list of CMD, Explorer, System, and Tools shortcuts right there. I like that it has Run and Run as Administrator right there to run the command you want. This will definitely be added to my system tools, plus it is portable. Two-Thumbs Up! Price: Free

EasyNetMonitor EasyNetMonitor

Small & effective network monitor 4 stars
So far this program is doing exact what I need it to do as far as notifying me when it cannot communicate with a given target system. It has visual, audible and e-mail capabilities. It has a small memory foot-print which is great and quite a few other configurable options. If you want to keep tabs on different systems or servers this network tool is pretty nice. Two-Thumbs Up!

But I came across Belvedere and tried it for the purpose I required and it Worked in second after configuring the rule, Select ENABLE - BAM! JOB DONE! I am loving this program. There are other features that need to be investigated but I'm very happy! Price: Free

Quick Cliq Quick Cliq

Quick & easy! 5 stars
The menu utility has a lot of nice features and after the install the program has a tutorial to boot to show you how to use it. You don't see that very often at all, nice job. The setup of the menus is fast and allow various options: File, Folder, Folder Menu, Folder Switch, System Shortcut, Email, URL, and Special. To add to this it allows Explorer integration so it will add items to your QuickCliq menu or sub-menu by using the Right-Click quick add option. The hot-keys allow fast access to menu and other program options like: clips, wins, memo, recent; Lots of great tools. Great tool and it is portable to boot. Two-Thumbs Up! Get it, use it, rate it!

Rename Us Rename Us

Fabulous renamer!!!! 5 stars
After searching, installing, and trying a number of rename utilities over the years I somehow skipped over this one but FOUND IT! It is the only one that allows you to manipulate the file names in such a way that be scripted and run at a DOS prompt. My suggestion is the start with the HELP file. Once you read through the documentation, which is short, but gives you all the information to make this renamer dance. It not as straight forward as other renamers that have quick screen change options but for more advanced users is allows youto build a method of different actions to be performed on based on your mask given with a preview execute option. This allows you to see the output before changing it. You can manipulate multiple files, add, insert, string options, use file tags, and more. The HELP file shows what it can do. Get it, use it, rate it. Two-Thumbs Up. If I had more I would add them! Simply an amazing just now found and it was last updated in 2010 Price: Free

Free DWG Viewer Free DWG Viewer

Like this viewer! 5 stars
This program works great for all DWG/DXF/DWF files that I review. It keeps being updated and has nice features and is my go-to viewer. It does not print the drawings unless you upgrade to the commercial version but if you need that functionality then it is worth it with the need for a full on drafting program. Two-Thumbs Up!

Nassau Nassau

Works well 3 stars
This program works as described. I displays all the information that a command prompt would provide but in a Tray Application. The display of the IPv4 and IPv6 address extend past the static windows thus you cannot read it fully. It would be nice to see additional options like to start with Windows or choose which adapter to display in the system tray would be nice. It is portable and make viewing the IP easier for sure.

V-Grep V-Grep

Nice grep util 3 stars
It works well when using the "Search in Files" function, has good features and is pretty quick. The other options such as "Search in File" and the HELP are incomplete and gave me "Access Violation" error when accessing them, as well as, exiting the program under Windows 7x64. I am not sure this program will be updated since it was created in 2006 but it has promise if they do. But in the mean time other Grep utilities may be a better choice till then.

Wonderful search tool 5 stars
JAM makes really good software, I own the TreeSize Pro. Only the Pro version will search Network Drives but back to UltraSearch. I like how it integrates into the Explorer shells' Right-click menu. It is there when you need it, its fast, small disk and memory foot print, and has an easy to use interface. It just very well thought out. The only limitation like most only look at local disks. I give it Two-Thumbs Up! Get it, use it, rate it!!! Price: Free

SearchMyFiles SearchMyFiles

Excellent results 5 stars
The biggest thing is to find a search too which will scan network drives. Most only look at local attached media but SearchMyFiles works without question on any drive or remote media. The interface seems busy at first but once you examine the layout it all makes sense. I was able to find what I needed and also to verify that if a file did not exist. Either way the results were produces quick. Thanks again to NirSoft's tools!!! Two-Thumbs Up! Price: Free

RegBak RegBak

Need to have utility! 5 stars
This program is great from a few prospectives; 1) It backs up the most important part of Windows; 2) Easy to restore your registry to a previous state "Regres.cmd" brilliant; 3) it is can be command line driven to set it up as a reoccurring task, thus giving you up to 30 days of possible restore points. It is great insurance to know you can recover from a registry disaster to Malware/Spyware, etc. that you can eradicate from the registry. Price: Free

Sumatra PDF Sumatra PDF

Simple & eligant viewer 5 stars
I looked at a lot of PDF utilities and this one fits the bill because it is fast, has the feature I'm looking for, has a small memory foot print, and guess what show you a PDF. It is a purposeful reader with out the traditional "software bloat" issues. Adobe PDF is nearly 80MB where this program is 2.8MB. Your choice should be based on what you do with a PDF. If you are just reading, printing, etc. this will work for you everytime. Two-Thumbs Up! Get it, use it, rate it! Juat wanted to shout out to Krzysztof Kowalczyk for a great program. Price: Free

Nice right-click enchancement tool! 5 stars
Very easy simple picture display tool. The installation works, quick and easy. Just right-click on a picture to display. It is quick and you can adjust the size of the picture that is displayed so it does not take up so much of the right-click menu. But it is better then Windows bitmap file display. If you are a right-click utility fan then this is just another cool tool! Wish I would have found it sooner.. Get it, use it, rate it! Price: Free

VisiPics VisiPics

Super amazing tool 5 stars
I had to do a recovery on profile to save all the pictures but ended up with 223GB of pictures with duplicates. Instead of most tools showing you the path of a file this show the image(s). It was so easy to extract the files to a folder, delete files , and the image display has the Exif data you need to select the right file(s). Very impressed! The interface is well laid out and easy to see what you need to do to process the files. It is simple, functional, fast, and gets the job done! Two-Thumbs Up for Guillaume FOUET (aka Ozone)!

Amazingly simple 5 stars
Everyone has uses sketches, paper cut outs to expensive 3D modeling but with 3DHome you can do it faster, easier, and cheaper.

A little bit of measuring, adding the right elements, and you can print the dimensions, layout, and 3D picture of what you are looking to accomplish. It is a wonderful tool to help in home remodeling and seeing how it will look before you invest your money. Kudos to eTeks for this SourceForge project who have made this available. Price: Free

Yadis! Backup Yadis! Backup

Great backup utility 5 stars
Updated: Compared to most backups this one is my favorite. Mostly backups you have to wait for a specific time to backup your different files. Yardis, just backs up your files on a continuous basis. It has error checking for file issues to network drive connectivity problem. The icon changes in the task bar to show when there are issues. The files that are currently locked are backlogged to be processed when their are freed. Some draw backs it that it does not use Volume Shadow Copy or have additional features like before/after process actions. These would allow more control over locked files or the ability to shutdown/restart them so you can back them up. I still give it high marks for it active backup process. It gives you piece of mind to know that it is being done now instead of waiting for some timed function. This is a Great Backup Utility! Two-Thumbs Up!! Price: Free
