Portable start menu and program manager SyMenu has been updated to version 4.06 with new Sysinternals support.
You can now browse the full catalogue of Sysinternals tools, select and download Autoruns, Process Explorer, or whatever else you need. Whatever you choose is downloaded to your USB key (or other destination), and added to the program menu.
The program provides similar access to NirSoft’s utilities, and a range of other popular free and open source tools: CCleaner, CPU-Z, Everything, XnView and more.
A new search tool filters the program list by name, category, description or publisher, making it easier to find the tools you need.
The official notes also state that the “freshest released” programs (anything updated in the last 10 days) are now highlighted with a label. We’re less sure about that – some programs did have a “new” label, but this seemed to appear almost randomly, with no obvious connection to the release date. This is a good idea in principle, but at first glance it seems there’s more work to do.
SyMenu 4.06 is otherwise a great release, and supporting both NirSoft and Sysinternals makes it an helpful troubleshooting tool, even if you’re just using the program locally. Take a look.
