    Most of the items on my flash drive are PC security or convenience related programs. Very little data. (I just took a look and I have approx 1 GB on it.) Several are standalone apps and others are just favorite programs I don't want to bother downloading again.

    Highlights (way too many to list them all)...

    Encryption:
    AxCrypt
    TrueCrypt
    EncryptOnClick
    DsCrypt
    LockNote
    KeePass (for encrypting my user names and passwords)

    Antivirus:
    Portable ClamWin
    Dr Web CureIt

    PhotoFiltre
    FastStone Image Viewer
    FastStone Screen Capture

    Windows setup & process :
    TweakUI for every Windows version
    Starter
    Sysinternals (several of them... wonderful programs)
    System Info for Windows
    Drop to DOS
    xp-AntiSpy

    Media related:
    Media Player Classic
    1by1 Player
    Real Alternative
    Quicktime Alternative

    Internet:
    Firefox (plus all of my extensions)
    ThunderBird
    Opera
    Portable Firefox
    Portable ThunderBird
    IE QuikSet Internet Zone
    MJ Registry Watcher

    Anyway, that's a partial list. Comes in handy for me quite often. :)

    Also check out MP-Crypt 0.5b which is a stand-alone freeware (26k in size) file encryption program. The latest version is probably 0.6 but it's shareware and much bigger in size.
