Is it possibly Universal Silent Switch Finder?

However a lot of times google will find it for you, usually from the software site itself.

No but that's a good find. I used a trial version of PE Explorer.

Actually now looking at the name "Universal Silent Switch Finder" I think that was it.

PE Explorer is great but its not free.

A few I tried it with didn't work, but the more obvious programs such as 7-zip work no probs.

I am curious if anyone has tried using these switches to setup run these as tasks in windows task manager.
