Small, concise, full-featured and overall incredible. This is an essential part of my toolkit.

A malware scanner.

Mostly-meh.

  • Their portable scanner is still just an installer.
  • It found an Wajam plugin from Magic Camera, presumably installed for either Internet Explorer or Edge.

    • During scanning, it claims to have found infected files, but those files were neither reported at the end of its scan nor found in its quarantine. What gives?

A defragmentation tool for individual files.

Note that defragmentation is irrelevant with an SSD, and even with a HDD, Windows will auto-defragment if you leave it alone for a bit. For windows 8 and Windows 10, my administrative settings are so aggressive that when I'm inactive for five minutes it pokes around to see what it can defragment.

  • As of 2016-02-15 on Windows 10, 1.35.04 is in my toolkit.
  • I had tested v1.0.0rc1 on Windows 8.1 a while back, for Path of Exile - (2013 game).

A general system information utility.

  • These days this is called AIDA64
  • I've been using 3.93 (2004-02-23) since my Windows XP days. Tested and still works as of 2016-02-12 on Windows 10 64bit.
  • Tested 3.94.2 (2004-02-23), on 2016-02-12, on Windows 10 64bit.
  • I'm not going to pursue the trialware AIDA64.
