    Hello,

    Windows geeks rejoice. And do read my review of NirLauncher, a package manager for the entire collection of Nir Sofer's freeware tools, allowing you to use them all from a single interface, on 32-bit and 64-bit Windows and from USB disks in portable fashion, plus it allows easy integration with Sysinternals Suite. Absolutely fantastic. Truly the perfect toolbox.

    Cheers,

    Well, as much as I rate Nir Sofer's excellent work, the NirLauncher comes years after the already existing WSCC. In fact, I'd say WSCC better integrates the NirSoft and SysInternals utilities than does NirLauncher. A bit of research on your part might have turned up this little gem, and gave your review some balance.

    A word of warning about either utility, though - many of the NirSoft utilities kick off anti-virus alerts, and loading either NirLauncher or WSCC can easily result in a good portion of the utilities being quarantined/deleted all at once.

    NirSoft Installer is useful for those who want to get the older apps not included in NirLauncher.

    I also prefer WSCC. One nice feature is that it can check for and automatically update all your Nirsoft and Sysinternal apps.
