    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

    TweakUI for every Windows version
    Starter
    Sysinternals (several of them... wonderful programs)
    System Info for Windows
    Drop to DOS

    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.
