Image To PDF or XPS Image To PDF or XPS

Update - jpeg to multiple image formats 5 stars
That program has gone in for some upgrades since JPEG2PDF was release in 2015. Now there is support for more image format types then before. As I mentioned before this program is portable and should be in your PortableApps toolbox. There are a couple of added configurations which make dumping files easier like: Use image folder or User EXIF orientation if present and of course outputting to PDF or XPS. I really the upgrade image options and features! Price: Free

Calibre Calibre

Works great on conversion 5 stars
I've been using this program for a while now and they just keep adding support and it just works. On conversions, you have to play with it to get the layout you would like for your device you read eBooks on but other than that it is point and click. It has it easy interface to follow both ICONs and Menu, the display is straight forward displaying all the relevant book information. Love it! Price: Free

Another wonderful NirSoft utility that has been around a while and should be recognized. With new threats and just wanting to know what your system is doing this helps keep tabs on things. It has the ability to export to a file on a timed basis, nice for remote system upload or via email to keep track of what is going on. Well thought out, simple and more of all works flawlessly!

CryptoPrevent CryptoPrevent

Ransomware preventor 5 stars
This is one of the original and early providers of protection against Ransomware. They do offer this for free but a small paid upgrade it not a bad thing to help the authors keep providing this quality and innovative software. Sometime you just have to pony up a few bucks but its worth it! The default settings pretty much do it without interfering too much in normal operations. If you are an advanced user then you can modify the settings to your needs. Support good projects! Two-Thumbs Up! Get it, use it, Rate it! Price: Free

VidCutter VidCutter

The amazing cut 5 stars
Simply impressive. ozmartian did a wonderful job creating a program that allows the ability to do single or multiple cuts then output those to a single file.

TCPEye TCPEye

Great view in tcp connections 5 stars
I really like this program. The interface is clean and tells you what is connect and where it is connected to. One column I like to see is the Country column. It displays a flag and country name that a particular program or process is connecting to. Knowing this it will help you setup rules for your firewall. It only has a few options to which are quick to configure to your liking. Overall, great program and will add it to my tools. Two-Thumbs Up! Get it, use it, rate it! Price: Free

Notepad ++ Notepad ++

Now my primary editor 5 stars
Notepad++ just keeps getting better. I'm updating my post form 2010 which then I thought it was great but now it is even better, more secure and now is my primary editor.

The multiple tabs is a must and new tabs are maintained even though not technically saved. Two-Thumbs Up! and more!! Thanks to NPP team for all their work! Get it, use it, rate it! Price: Free

PDF Shaper Free PDF Shaper Free

Simple and effective pdf manipulation tool 4 stars
This program has a lot to offer to people who want to manipulate PDF files. It has a number of tools that are listed on the main interface. once you select what you want to do it pop-ups a separate utility to do the performing task. The only thing that is clunky is entering the page numbers that you want to do some task with which means you have to know exactly the pages numbers. I think this is great for large documents so you can affect change to the specific pages you want. But in smaller to medium documents if you could view the PDF and just tag the pages would be a nice feature. Nonetheless, it Works wonderfully and consistently. Two-Thumbs Up! Get it, use it, rate it! Price: Free

Wow! After running SIV the amount of information that our system provide is amazing and this program delivers. I was blown away about how each section I clicked on display so much information, some I was not aware of, was display so clearly before me. Also this program is Portable which adds to its availability to be put onto a PortableApps USB drive. I appreciate the detail that the author had put into the program. The fonts are easy to read, the sections are specific to what you want to look at, it is a clean interface, and it is FAST. rating: Two-Thumbs Up! Shout out to the author - some nice programming!!!

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.

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

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.

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

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

Either way the results were produces quick. Thanks again to NirSoft's tools!!! Two-Thumbs Up! Price: Free

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
