      NirLauncher is a package containing all of the NirSoft utilities. It is updated weekly. NirSoft publishes a huge amount of portable programs which can be very valuable in finding information about almost every aspect of your PC.

      See NirLauncher for a download link.

      NOTE: Some a/v programs flag several of the NirSoft utilities as malware. As long as you get the programs from the NirSoft site you can be sure they are NOT malware.

      It is disgraceful that these password recovery programs are still flagged as malware, even though Nir removed the options that made them easier to use with scripting language. I attest to them being a good tools for strictly honest personal use as sometimes recovery may not be possible without that password. Also, a wireless network tool program is declared malware even though you can with a smartphone and a network analyzer application can see the same information.

      The standardized native user interface for all of the utilities makes them easier to use along with complete documentation make this program set a good use of disk space for even casual users.

      I don’t use the Launcher but I do use the utilities. Since they are portable programs I just place an exception in my AV programs to not scan the NirSoft directory.

      May the Forces of good computing be with you!

        That is what I’ve done also. First time users may be surprised when some of the programs are flagged.
