A Few Requests

I am a computer technician and there are a few programs that I use on computers to either identify the hardware in it or optimize it so that it runs faster.

PerfectDisk:
A disk defragmenter. Either this or a similar program, such as Diskeeper.

DriverHeaven TuneXP 1.5 Final:
An optimization utility. This way I can take it with me and instead of installing it on each computer that I repair, I can run it directly from my thumb drive.

DriverHeaven Full PC Info 2:
Finds and displays all components that are within a computer and is more in-depth about the information. This way it would be easier for me to find out what components the computer is using so it would be easier to troubleshoot an issue.

Also, a program that finds and fixes errors within the Registry would be very helpful. Thank you for looking at my requests and I hope to see them in the future.

All closed source

so they wont be officially released by PortableApps.com as we only do Opensource Apps.
Maybe someone is willing to write a Launcher.

TuneXP:

As for the defragmenter, here is an OpenSource defragmenter that would be nice to have made usable from a U3 drive:

Do not worry about the other programs I mentioned in the first post.

Thank you very much

for the Defrag link!
Both the Commandline and GUI version are portable out of the box.

Oh nice! I wasn't sure if it

Oh nice! I wasn't sure if it would run from it directly or now. Any way someone could make a launcher for it so that it can be started thru a link in the U3 Launcher?

I haven't tested this to see

I haven't tested this to see if they all work on other computers but so far I've used the Shortcut Creator to install the following programs on my U3 drive:

JkDefrag: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JkDefrag
Ad-Aware: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ad-aware
Spybot S&D: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spybot
Firefox: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefox
CWShredder: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CWShredder
Stinger: http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/
TuneXP: http://www.cheapdown.com/product_info.php?products_id=358

Basically what I did is download the setup file for each of the programs and install them into a folder with a name that corresponds with the program. For example, TuneXP was installed in this directory:

X:\System\Apps\TuneXP

Then using the Shortcut Creator, I told it the location of the .exe file for the program and it made a shortcut to it in my U3 Launcher. The antispyware and antivirus programs as still able to be updated and the updates are placed on the drive, not on the computer that the drive is plugged into.

Ok the ones that don't work

Ok the ones that don't work are Ad-Aware and Spybot. If they are not already installed on the computer, installing them on the U3 device will cause a link to be made between the computer and the program so that the program can't run unless it can access a certain file on the computer. That makes it so that when you install it on the U3 device, the computer it was plugged into at that time is the only one that can run the program from the device. Also, attempting to Immunize with Spybot S&D caused the program to freeze each time. All of the other programs I listed work fine.
