New Custom App option to delete files/directories in the Post-Execution section. This uses KillEmAll style rule variables. This is used in the new ESET Smart Installer custom app to remove the desktop shortcut left behind by running the portable app. The tweak “Remove ‘3D Objects’ from ‘This PC’” under Tweaks > Interface/Explorer was not auto-detecting […]
Founder and Developer - After over a dozen years "in the trenches" as a computer repair technician specializing in malware removal, I came to focus on a software development hobby. Initially I created tools to assist technicians like myself with the inefficient, repetitive, and mundane tasks PC techs face daily, in order to provide a far more efficient means of getting the job done. Later came an interest in using my development skills and tech experience for prevention of malware...

These drive mappings will automatically be removed during End Session. Added new registry startup locations to the ‘Registry Inspection > Run/RunOnce Values’ function in […]
This was a pretty good update for both new capabilities and fixes. New/Changed: d7x will now run directly from write-protected media, rather than copying itself to the local OS drive. Obviously any desired settings changes will not be saved successfully, but everything should function as expected; please report any issues to support! Added new features […]
Do you prefer to use certain programs over Microsoft’s default offerings? If so, you probably have run into the issue of having your preferred program defaults reset to Microsoft Windows defaults.

New Tweak: Enable DNS over HTTPS (Requires Windows 10 build 19628 and compatible DNS servers e.g. Cloudflare or Google.) New Command Line Argument: /NiniteProfile=[AutoModeProfileName] used to automate Ninite Pro Classic silently. Previously the /d7f=74 would fire the Ninite functionality but it failed without being able to specify a profile, so the new switch replaces that […]
