There are quite a few portable apps which don't even need to be installed.
You can check out PortableApps.com - Portable software for USB drives for quite a bunch of them.
A partial list of apps is here, Portable App Directory | PortableApps.com - Portable software for USB drives

I thought this was a pain AT FIRST (using portable apps) but after a while it really is nice. I use a lot of portable apps now. I have an 8GB flash drive and have all my programs that run from it. The apps run pretty fast and you can take your programs to other computers. I second this recommendation.
