    For you folks interested in portable software, you might be interested in hearing more about the U3 standard. It will bring us much greater options for portable software.

    All – Keep in mind that there are more applications that CAN BE PORTABLE, although aren’t specifically planned to be so.

    For example, Spybot S&D; will run in “stand alone” mode by simply copying the installed directory. Others require a bit of “tweaking” but can be run as well from a USB device.

    well done mike.
    one thing to comment about TugZIP (free archiver)
    It works great (I’m using it all the time), but a current bug -well, it’s old but still current- prevents it from *creating* ZIP files straight from a USB stick. Uncompressing is not a problem, but creating a ZIP is.
    So until this annoying bug is fixed, I don’t think it’s the most appropriate archiver to suggest for protable app’ing.

    Solution from Search-and-destroy.
    If you own a computer, you must have antispyware to keep it running at its best. The problem is choosing a scan that works. I have tried many different types of scans in the past and then I ran across Search-and-destroy Antispyware. I have to say that the antispyware solution from Search-and-destroy is the best that I have used to date. It gets the job done and keeps my computer working like new. If you are interested in seeing for yourself just how good this antispyware works you can click on http://www.Search-and-destroy.com to learn more. I’m sure it would be worth your time to check it out.
