About the Program....
Portable Apps Work Just as Well - It has become both my Professional and Personal Tech Tool bag
I have a passion for utilities and keeping my PC running squeaking clean. I see an error in my event log and I am on it!
Consequently I need many utilities to assist me in this life's passion of mine. As a result of this I usually fill my drive
with many such utilities. Well recently I have found that portable apps running on an external USB drive have served me quite
well in my need for clean. Many programmers out there are making available portable versions of their programs, as they too
see this need.
I have compiled a list of very well known and trusted portable apps and created a launcher or start menu program for them.
I call it GEGeek's Tech Toolkit - All the Tech Tools ⁄ Utilities ⁄ Notes I normally use are now residing on an external USB drive.
If I should ever need to reinstall my box again I don't need to reinstall all these programs. I just create a link to the GEGeek
Toolkit Menu program on the ext drive and I am done. You can also just copy the program to your internal drive and run it from
there as well if desired. Just make sure it is off the root directory of the drive. ex: C:\GEGeek ToolKit or usb drive F:\GEGeek ToolKit
Can't tell you how much time and resources this saves me. Not only that, it travels with me where ever I go, so my comfort level
with knowing where everything is and what the utility does remains high for field repairs on customer's PC's. I sometimes
even leave a copy on some customer's PC for when I connect remotely for repairs. All the programs are free and legal to copy.
First Some notes about the program:
First off don't be alarmed when certain programs contained within the WSCC program give you a virus warnings. These are
false positives, as these tools they are targeting are just that, tools. Tools that some bad guys use to compromise systems.
That is not the case here. There are tools included here that crack passwords and reveal product keys, tools like that are
causing the false positives, thinking that some site has planted them on your drive. I encourage you to thoroughly test these
programs, as I have, and you will be convinced that they are not viruses but only tools.
Allow time for the program to load itself fully when you first launch it before first use! This could take a few minutes on some
slower machines!!. The program first determines the number of bits for the system it is currently connected to and then It scans
for 32 bit and 64 bit apps on the gegeek toolkit menu system that are compatible. Incompatible programs have a white dos box
next to its name and will not run.
Tested on a Windows XP SP3 32bit PC it took approx 5 minutes before the program was fully responsive.
On my home PC with USB 2.0 (Win 7-64bit) it took less than 5 seconds.
In the future when everybody has USB 3.0 I'm sure this won't even be an issue.
Bottom line, be patient on the slower PCs.
Unzip the program to the root dir of your preferred drive - (Switched to 7zip for better compression) 7zip Download
Make sure to Extract The Tech Toolkit it to the root directory of whatever drive you are using. F:\GEGeek ToolKit
7zip was necessary for the Ketarin updates to work properly, so I just compressed everything with 7zip.
To launch the GEGeek Tech Toolkit
Simply point to the following exe program in the GEGeek Toolkit Directory once extracted to the USB drive.
It's preferred to extract it to the root of the drive. ex: F:\GEGeek ToolKit
Once launched you will see a blue icon in your taskbar as follows:
Right click this icon to see the menu
This is a sample of what the program looks like when you right click the icon in the taskbar:
Near the bottom of the Main Menu are some entry's to be observed:
"WSCC Portable". NirLauncher, System Stats and "Run Ketarin Update"
I will discuss below what each menu item does.
"Windows System Control Center" program.
This WSCC entry is a very similar program to this one and contains all the programs from Sysinternals and NirSoft.
Just in case I missed a program in my menu system, this program will surely have it. You need to run and update
it from time to time as well since they have frequent updates to their programs. Just select the "Updates" button
located upper right of the program when you first launch it.
"Run Ketarin Update"
The "Run Ketarin Update" entry is an open source program that checks for updates on my programs and downloads
them, as well as automatically unzips them if need be. From time to time program locations url's change and that
program update will fail. You will need to manually edit the url location in the Ketarin program or you can just wait
till I notice it and make the change myself. Either way you have full access to the program.
When the Ketarin program is first displayed just select the "Update All" button at the bottom and go get some coffee.
Ketarin Program showing all the updates in progress.
If you'll notice, down at the bottom of the menu there's an entry for System Stats.
System Stats is based on the BgInfo program from Sysinternals and customized for use here.
The first thing I always do when I sit in front of a PC is find out what I am dealing with. I want no surprises later on!
When you run this program you will be shown a summary of all the important parameters of the system.
Below is a snapshot of my system's "System Stats"
All the Nirsoft and SysInternals Tools included in WSCC are included here as well in NirLauncher.
Same as WSCC, just a different layout. It's a matter of preference.
Note below in the pic how to switch between packages, Sysinternals and Nirsoft.
The Reference Docs I've included are for when you are without internet access and need a repair procedure with specific commands outlined.
I've also included a pdf reader just for this situation, just in case.
Be mindful of any PIM data you may have entered. Make sure to export⁄save that data before upgrading.
Comments⁄Suggestions are always welcomed and my only reward.
Any portable app that you think would be worthy adding here just drop me a line
Tell me how I can make this tool better!!!
