Im not sure if this is the right place to ask this but will ask anyway.
I have downloaded the Computer Repair Utility Kit and would like to add some more apps, like AdAware and Spybot and others, but how do I add them and have them show up like the ones that come prinstalled? Do I need to make folders for them? what about icons for them?
Thanks for any input,

Les

Its based on the portable apps architecture. All the information you need will be here: http://portableapps.com/

Its based on a program called pstart. To add a new app you can either make a folder on your flash drive pinpoint P. start to that directory. Or, after you have started P. start you can double click on the icon in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen. This will bring up the control panel for p start. Now you can right click on an empty space, and select add file. It will ask you for the location of the file you're trying to add if you have already copied the application to your flash drive this point be start in the right direction. You may also separate applications by type by creating a new group or a new folder inside of p-start. Here are a few screenshots of my portable kit. Take in mind that not all applications are portable or can be made portable.

Thank you both. I was up till 2am lat night reading up on this and going to the different links. Another question, I have a 60GB pocket drive USB 2.0 would that work the same as a 512, 1GB memory stick? that way I could have all the repair stukk plus a storage area for customer stuff etc.
Just an idea.

Thanks again,

Les

Yes it would work the same way. I have been doing this with an 80 gig hard drive.
I'm upgrading to a Western Digital passport drive 160 gig. You may see a bit of a speed difference between the flash memory and hard drive.
