Is the "security flaw" that they started including PUP's such as Open Candy, or something else ?
They have removed Open Candy and other PUP's as far as I know.

I recently found i can use the latest version of Foxit as a Portable App, and so far that is working well for me.
Foxit quit offering a portable version a long time ago.
I'm trying to move as many programs as possible to Portable, on a triple boot it means I only need to maintain one program for 3 OS's ...

Something else. It was a security hole that hackers could get in through, not a PUP.

So the security hole was "plugged" ?
I use Secunia PSI, as one "security layer", and when it alerts me of a security problem, i fix it ...
imho any program can have security holes found, including Windows OS

I do agree it might be best to use "less popular" software, as malware writers probably spend less time attacking those programs ...

I look there first for programs I need.
I use OpenOffice portable also.

ReRun 2.5.4.0

ReRun is a free program I wrote that detects running programs and shows a button for those recently closed. The idea is if you have a program that is not easily accessible, such as not pinned to taskbar, and close it by mistake, you can pop up the Button Panel with a hotkey to ReRun it with a mouse click.

With version 2.5.4.0 I finally have it working as I wanted at the beginning. Persistence pays off.

You may download ReRun from
Miles Ahead's Windows Downloads

This page I host myself. So it has the latest versions of my freeware. I think presently there are about 50 small utilities available for download. I hope you find ReRun useful.

I can't even download it, I just get file not found errors.
Do you still have the install? Could you mirror it?
