Freeware Software created by Alex Nolan
Windows, database, file and freeware utilities designed and created by Alex Nolan.
"The freeware software utilities have been created to not require an installation to run. They can be carried around on a thumb drive, CD or DVD and then run on different machines without the need to be installed first. There are no runtime libraries required to be installed first unless specified otherwise. These freeware utilities do not contain spy-ware or ad-ware of any kind!"

There are currently 50 utilities under development.
Some of the standalone freeware utilities on the site:
