How To Create Any Portable Application

Step-by -Step Tutorial to make any Application Portable with Winrar & Universal Extractor:
What is a portable program ?
A portable program is a piece of software that you can carry around with you on a portable device(USB thumb drive, PDA or aniPod) and use on any other computer(Office, school or Colleges). It can be your email program, your browser, system recovery tools or even an operating system. The coolest part about it, is that all of your data and settings are always stored on a thumbdrive so when you unplug the device, none of your personal data is left behind.
