    Isn't this old news now? Certainly not just released. It used to be called Winpatrol flash. http://www.winpatrolflash.com/

    But I think the discussed problem was the newer WinpatrolToGo creates a folder in application data/winpatrol, where the older version didn't do this.

    SandboxIE has a free portable version too. :)

    One problem with a lot of these newer so-called portable apps is they require you to be logged on as admin. But why even make a program for a flash drive that can only be run on an admin account? Aren't most places where you would use your flash drive a limited account (school, work, library, internet cafe etc.)? If your just going to run it at home, why not just install the regular program? It would probably run faster too. ;)
