Portable Apps

I know a few of us around here are fans of "portable apps".
(apps that can be run "stand alone" from a jump drive without an actual install)
VERY useful for us SA types who hop computers.

So if you're a portable apps user...post up some of your favorites here.
(none of that gimiky U3 stuff though!)

I'll start w/ some of my fav's: (all freeware)

PSTART - a 'windows style' start menu for portable apps, great!
http://www.pegtop.net/start/

FAST STONE IMAGE RESIZER: just what the name implies.
http://www.faststone.org/

FAST STONE IMAGE VIEWR: kind of like AcdSee used to be. Good quick image viewer and Thumbnailer. Basic editing.
http://www.faststone.org/

SIW SYSTEM INFO: (free for non commercial use)
Gathers comprehensive system info, software keys, hardware info, wmi info, system account info, etc.
http://www.gtopala.com/

FIREFOX PORTABLE:
Our favorite browser made portable.
2.0 is out as a release candidate, seems nice and stable so far.
Works w/ most of the normal extensions as well.
http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable

PORTABLE THUNDERBIRD:
Portable email client. I dont use their "full" version, but I like the portable to have a pre-configured capable email client when I'm at clients.
http://portableapps.com/apps/interne...rbird_portable

MIRANDA IM CLIENT:
Supports all the major IM protocols (MSN, Yahoo, AOL, etc)
MUCH lighter and smoother than the more popular "Gaim".
http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/miranda_portable

PORTABLE OPEN OFFICE:
Just fantastic. Just as "full blown" as OpenOffice....but tweaked to run portably. Docs are 99.99999% compatible and identical to their MS Office counterparts. Both the portable and "full" versions are free free free!
http://portableapps.com/apps/office

PORTABLE NVU:
Fairly robust HTML editor. (as if you need more notepad???)
http://portableapps.com/apps/development/nvu_portable

NOTEPAD 2:
An excellent text editor, syntax highlighting for various common scripting languages.
ALLEGEDLY available as a portable app, but I havent been able to find the portable release yet.
If anyone comes across it, you'll be my new hero.

another one for the SA types out there, my desktop guy came across this.
http://www.mitec.cz/

WRR (Windows Registry Recovery)
Great for delving into an in-accessible registry.
Works phenominally for digging into those annoying ntuser.dat files. Really nice for users w/ Roaming Profiles. (Just grab a copy of their ntuser.dat and dig to your heart's content w/o having to keep visiting them)

SCITE
Found by my co-worker.
GREAT stand-alone editor. All the usual syntax highlighting for about a million different languages, but also has language selecting...select the correct language from the option menu, and it can parse code groups. (ie, collapse "if" blocks, collapse sub-routines, etc)
