Application: Spybot - Search & Destroy
Spybot - Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven't intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware. Even if you don't see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging. Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm giving it a try to see if something has invaded your computer.
Spybot-S&D can also clean usage tracks, an interesting function if you share your computer with other users and don't want them to see what you have been working on. And for professional users, Spybot-S&D allows you to fix some registry inconsistencies and extended reports.

- Bundled with permission
I was told that a while back PortableApps.com had been granted permission to bundle Spybot as a portable application. I wanted to verify this was true myself (since nobody else has packaged it yet, I figured why not possibly do it myself), and ask if this applied to any of your other utilities (RegAlyzer, FileAlyzer, etc.). I'm quite busy with classes at the moment so Spybot Portable might take a bit, however your other utilities seem to be much easier to package for the time being. If I was told wrong and we have not been given permission to do so, then I apologize for not further checking first.
There should not be a problem with this, as long as you make clear that this is only for the private use.
