    I used to have such a USB Flash drive with Useful Utilities on it, but to be honest the sheer effort of keeping it updated (even with a BATch file) made me give up the idea after a couple of years.

    Hello...Don't know if this counts but, i guess you could put it on a "Flash Drive " Wondershare LiveBoot ....It's free only until Fri-12-2011 ..Has lots of useful tools... Regards Fred

    Fred,

    Yes it does count, however, it does require a Flash Drive of its own! I've downloaded this but haven't had a chance to evaluate it yet. We're out in the motorhome for the next three months. Just had all necessary repairs done at Tom Johnson Camping Center in Marion NC. We're off Zip Lining today, FUTURE posts in doubt!

    If we want to list portable security apps, let's not forget Super Antispyware Portable Edition (free).

    Autoruns instead of Startup Control Panel

    Autoruns is part of the Sysinternals package. It's covers so much more than Startup Control Panel. SCP found 6 programs that run at startup. Autoruns found 16 programs and processes. With that said, I have and use both. But if you're talking about saving space on the flash drive, I'd stick with Autoruns.

    I like LiberKey

    I have LiberKey on a USB key and it keeps itself up to date quite nicely -- I used to use portableapps.com but I like Liberkey better because I like the way the self-updater works

    CLiNT: Thanks for your list also...I use some of those but didn't know they had portable versions.

    This project is going well...thanks all!
    Yes, all portable, some have both portable and exe install routines.
