PAF.EXE files are created by PortableApps.com, a platform designed for running apps off a USB flash drive. Each PAF.EXE file contains an executable file, program settings, and program history information. PortableApps.com programs do not store any history on the computer they are run on.

Portable apps will run on most Windows computers that have Windows XP or later installed. However, they require the "PortableApps.com Platform," which provides the necessary components for portable apps to run. The platform is typically installed on a flash drive or other removable device.
