Quick CliqQuick Cliq

Quick & easy!5 starsby busybusy (Read all my 144 reviews)
The menu utility has a lot of nice features and after the install the program has a tutorial to boot to show you how to use it. You don't see that very often at all, nice job. The setup of the menus is fast and allow various options: File, Folder, Folder Menu, Folder Switch, System Shortcut, Email, URL, and Special. To add to this it allows Explorer integration so it will add items to your QuickCliq menu or sub-menu by using the Right-Click quick add option. The hot-keys allow fast access to menu and other program options like: clips, wins, memo, recent; Lots of great tools. Great tool and it is portable to boot. Two-Thumbs Up! Get it, use it, rate it!

The peas are ripe4 starsby realbull2009250 (Read all my 50 reviews)
Since 7-zip has not been updated recently(last stable:2010), I wanted to change to a new zip/compress tool. PeaZip is probably the only open-source alternative to 7-zip that is worth using. It claims to support opening 150+ extensions and can compress to all the common type archives, mainly 7-zip, ZIP, ARC, TAR, ISO, but of course not RAR. It also has a variety of tools; splitjoin, secure password, scheduler, ChecksumHash check, CRC check, convert archive, secure delete and more. The layout is easy to understand and can be changed. The toolbar looks nice with buttons for the common functions. The toolbar can also be changed. The only downside of PeaZip are that some other tools are missing such as email, uploading and repair archive. I also notice that PeaZip is a bit slow when opening up an archive, about 1-2 seconds slower than 7-zip, but this is just being picky. Overall PeaZip is enough for the common user who just wants to compress and extract archives, and may have more than enough tools for them. The other advance users who are looking for the tools not offered by PeaZip may have to buy a Pro Zip software. But, I think PeaZip is not meant to be a Pro Archiver, but one for beginners and intermediate users. It is a great upgrade from 7-zip for those who want a change.

DocPadDocPad

Good editor, but depends on your needs4 starsby LowStrung (Read all my 7 reviews)
DocPad includes many useful editing functions not found in Notepad, plus some handy tools: A better character map than the one included in Windows, a calendar that stays on top of the editor window, a color picker for working with HTML files, and a calculator that stays on top, as well. The toolbar is customizable, and so is the interface. If you don't like the skins, you can pick one and edit the colors and sizes of all the app's elements to suit your taste. The default skin seems to work best for that. The result can be a very nice-looking GUI. A few drawbacks: 1) Although you can choose a font face for documents, the sizes are designated as small, large, huge, etc. with no way to select exact point sizes. 2) It's not possible to display or search for invisible characters, such as tab characters or carriage returns, or to insert or delete them via the find and replace dialog. Not everyone needs these capabilities for general text editing, however. 3) Multiple files are opened in separate instances of the program, as tabs are not supported, whereas most of today's text editors have tabbed interfaces. 4) DocPad keeps its installer and uninstaller in the app's installation folder, taking up roughly 18 extra MB on the disk. Delete them and you won't be able to uninstall the program through the control panel; you'll get an error message. You can remove all of DocPad's files manually, but the app will still show up in the control panel.

Totally disappointed overall1 starsby usnavytank950
I am a DOD Cyber Defense Analyst and bought AVG to kind of test it out not only for myself at home but for work. I am totally disappointed overall. First off paid tech support that is nuts! you pay for a product and when it does not work you have to pay someone to fix it. Then after reinstalling the software 3 to 4 times because it kept telling me I did not have the paid version but I download for the site it says I am good. The interface is good but clunky and the one overall thing I liked was the privacy monitor which worked as advertised. Overall I would not recommend this to anyone because of the support and the clunkiness of it. Most of my users just want things to work without a lot of backend and AVG falls well short of this requirement. This is sad because AVG used to be a great product but now has gone the way of so many companies after a initial success.

Fabulous renamer!!!! 5 starsby busybusy (Read all my 144 reviews)
After searching, installing, and trying a number of rename utilities over the years I somehow skipped over this one but FOUND IT! It is the only one that allows you to manipulate the file names in such a way that be scripted and run at a DOS prompt. My suggestion is the start with the HELP file. Once you read through the documentation, which is short, but gives you all the information to make this renamer dance. It not as straight forward as other renamers that have quick screen change options but for more advanced users is allows youto build a method of different actions to be performed on based on your mask given with a preview execute option. This allows you to see the output before changing it. You can manipulate multiple files, add, insert, string options, use file tags, and more. The HELP file shows what it can do. Get it, use it, rate it. Two-Thumbs Up. If I had more I would add them! Simply an amazing just now found and it was last updated in 2010

Decent product, be aware opencandy possible4 starsby drfung (Read all my 18 reviews)
Apparently Lightning UK! (publisher) has received criticism for bundling opencandy adware with the product, so at least check Imgburn's forum for the dialog for both sides of the story. I use the portable version as opposed to the installed one, and I detected no trace of adware in that. The product itself performs flawlessly, simple interface and sufficiently configurable. I've yet to make any coasters with it.

Simple with no bloat5 starsby BillyBob (Read all my 2 reviews)
I needed a simple program to keep track of my personal budget, tax deductible expenses, the school expenses of my children, some business expenses, and some long term debts. I sampled many programs. Most were too bloated. This one was simple and did the job. There's a little bit of a learning curb but it was manageable for me. I liked it so much I made a donation to the author.

In fact, I think it is the best Security Suite out there right now. Have been using Emsisoft Internet Security for a little over 6 months now, with no problems. Light on resources, fast scans, great protection. I have used most of the well known security suites out there, and Emsisoft out shines them all.

Very important feature is missing3 starsby alexandis57
Even though I would recommend this software to others, there is one missing feature, that made it useless for my case and I have removed this application. I'll explain. I have a complex subfolder image structure. Among all images, I have ones which are very large by resolution. I consider it senseless to store such big images, so I want to resize them to 4MPx. But at the same time, I have some images, already resized or smaller than intended - I do not want to touch them. To make a story short, I've made a scan of whole root folder. Then, in top list of all found images I sorted them descending by resolution. This way I have found the ones I want to convert in the top. So far so good. BUT! I've been disappointed to find out, that I cannot multi-select some of those and apply conversion to this subset... Also, there is no option to indicate not to touch images, which are already smaller than i want to get. So, they won't be touched by default or they will be upscaled??

There's power in simplicity4 starsby agesandrew1599
I had been looking for a HTML editor for quite some time, but then I stumbled upon npad2 and that was the end of my search because not only can you edit HTML but PHP,JS,ASP,XML,CSS and a myriad of other languages and scripts. What I like the most is how it highlights the various language tags making it super efficient to review and edit code, unlike notepad which just jumbles everything up. So if you are looking for convenience and a nifty editing tool in my opinion npad2 is the solution and most of all it's free!

Highly recommended5 starsby fanofthe9470
If you miss the Windows 7 gadgets, you'll enjoy the 8GadgetPack. In Windows 8.1, I spend 99.9 percent of my time in the Windows Desktop environment (versus the Windows "Tile world"). The 8GadgetPack functions just like the gadgets that shipped with Windows 7. It ships with 56 gadgets. The 8GadgetPack can also be installed on Windows 7...this is a nifty way to add a weather gadget to Windows 7 (note: Microsoft previously blocked the Microsoft weather gadget from functioning).

I'm very pleased with appcleaner4 starsby Smeagal1965 (Read all my 13 reviews)
I have read a lot of bad reviews about this software and felt that I should tell my experiences with AppCleaner. I recently downloaded and installed the latest version and tried it. It was very fast compared to say Privazer, and cleaned much more than Ccleaner or Wise DC. Even after running the three mentioned cleaners beforehand, AppCleaner found another 2.43 gigs of junk! I have suffered no ill effects from the cleaning and it greatly improved overall speed and responsiveness of my Win 7 64 bit laptop. I'm not sure why people have had such bad luck with it. Maybe the earlier versions were dangerous but the latest version has been a blessing for me.

Beautiful interface, which you can change themes from dark to light and whatever you want. It has plenty for any developer. Like someone else said will be getting rid of other html/text editors.

Veracrypt, the Truecrypt cousin4 starsby isnap7 (Read all my 2 reviews)
Currently, I'm using VeraCrypt, it's a good replacement for truecrypt, the interface is actually the same, so you won't get lost, you can mount the old Truecrypt container, or convert them to Veracrypt format, and that's is what I've done. The only cons that I noticed is the lack of speed when mounting, it's taking more time than Truecrypt. tested on a core i7 3770k with 4go ram.

Changed my mind about this app3 starsby LowStrung (Read all my 7 reviews)
My previous review gave STDU Viewer a high rating, but unfortunately after discovering a lot of instability and PDF rendering flaws I've had to change my mind. If you want the app for PDFs, there are much better options out there that are faster and less bloated than Adobe's reader, as well as smaller in size and free. By instability I'm referring to frequent crashes on my Windows 7 system, not only in the browser feature and the loading of some PDF documents, but also when trying to open the Paragraphs and Fonts section of the options dialog for text documents. As for STDU Viewer's PDF rendering, I've seen much better quality in Sumatra PDF. In particular, I find STDU's display of music scores inaccurate and slow by comparison.

avast! Free Antivirus 2015avast! Free Antivirus 2015

Good..3 starsby whyishme123622
Avast is great, especially compared to Norton. Norton injects a virus only they can get rid of, and sometimes they can't even fix their own virus. Norton users switched to Avast, but I do recommend once you have your 30 days, switch to AVG and Malware Bytes, preferably Spybot. Avast is good for temp. use, as it's free and it obviously misses somethings, slows down performance, etc. Be careful how you use Avast, and don't depend on it. If you do, it can come back and bite you. Be wary.

Sumatra PDF screenshot

Sumatra PDFSumatra PDF

My favorite pdf viewer5 starsby LowStrung (Read all my 7 reviews)
The simplicity and speed of Sumatra PDF has already been acknowledged here; I like that too, but I just want to point out a few other things: 1) This must be the cleanest looking PDF reader around. The latest version has added tab support, but the tab bar is superimposed on the titlebar, which frees up some vertical space. The conventional menu bar has been replaced by a button at the top left corner which brings up a cascading main menu. 2) As the SnapFiles editor mentioned, the app also supports the CHM format, which is used for help files. Opening a help file in Sumatra makes it much easier to read, because you can zoom it to a comfortable reading size. Also, the indexes in most of those help files will show up in the left-hand sidebar as bookmarks once you enable them. 3) I've tried several other PDF readers. All of them surpass the bloated reader from Adobe. STDU Viewer, which I've reviewed here as well, is good, but I've just discovered that its rendering of PDFs is inferior to that of Sumatra, especially in music scores. Curved lines appear jagged in STDU but are much smoother in Sumatra. In addition, STDU sometimes misaligns notes on the staff, which makes the score hard to read.

EaseUS Partition Master screenshot

EaseUS Partition MasterEaseUS Partition Master

Want data loss?1 starsby pill828
I am surprised at how positive other reviews here are - this must result from lack of experience or lack of acquaintance with the software. EaseUS Partition Master is a crude chinese copy (some might say rip-off) of Powerquest's PartitionMagic V8.0, which was an excellent partition manager for OS up to WinXP, but which has not been updated to run under Win7 or later. At first I thought it was just clumsily implemented - functional, but with poor & ambiguous translation - for eg the distinction between RECOVER (from data loss) and RESTORE (of a backup) is critical - but is lost on them. But I now recognise it is much more dangerous than this. First, a cloned HDD (made using the Linux bootable from USB) is faulty, and requires your Win startup disk to repair it (see https:support.microsoft.comen-uskb2004518). This is quite a nuisance - dangerous only if you are a novice or lack a windows recovery disk. The killer is in the partition operations, some of which require exiting from windows and auto-running a file after reboot. I have tried this only twice, and on each occasion Partition Master failed to find the batch file it needed on reboot. On the second of these occasions I was aiming to restore the OS partition from a cloned disk created as a backup. EaseUS corrupted the partition table on the SOURCE disk, so ruining my backup. How it did this, when it should only have been reading from it, I don't know...and don't care either. Want to take risks with your data?

1by11by1

A little gem of a program!5 starsby LowStrung (Read all my 7 reviews)
1by1 shows me my music collection exactly the way I want to see it. Over the years I've named every audio file on my computer according to its content, so I can do without those bloated music library organizers as well as the display of IDE3 tags. The app also displays the length of each file in a folder, as well as the total length of a whole folder full of audio files. Music listening just doesn't get any better than that. If I get tired of looking at all those file names, 1by1 can also be switched into mini mode, thus hiding the file list and taking up very little room on the screen. In case no one else has noticed or mentioned this, the program also plays streaming audio from the web via M3U files once BASS.dll has been added to 1by1's application folder. For those of you who don't like the visual aspects of the program, just explore the various settings and the detailed manual shipped with the program. You'll soon learn how to customize the color scheme -- it's very easy.

BowPadBowPad

A powerful editor, but too developer-oriented2 starsby LowStrung (Read all my 7 reviews)
I agree with Harlan that BowPad's ribbon interface is clunky, but ribbons are clunky in other programs, too. Something I find especially irritating in BowPad is the pop-up infotip you get when hovering over any numbers in the text. The infotip displays the hex, binary and decimal values of the number. A programmer might appreciate that, but I'm not a programmer, and it always gets in my way when trying to read text in non-technical documents, e-books, for example. Why on earth would I want to see the hexadecimal value of a date? You can't shut that feature off, either, nor can you disable the syntax highlighting of HTML files. I prefer AkelPad, where the extra features are plugins that can be disabled or removed altogether if they're not needed.

Best archiver I've used4 starsby LowStrung (Read all my 7 reviews)
I abandoned 7-Zip a long time ago in favor of Bandizip, which is fast and reliable, more user-friendly than 7-Zip, and can handle a wide range of archive formats. There is also a portable version, which is what I'm currently using (Bandizip 5.05). The image previewer found in the installed version is not available in the portable version, but you can still open archived images by association, either via the enter key or by double-clicking them. One thing I'd like to see that is standard in Windows Explorer compressed folders is the ability to copy and paste files to and from an archive. That option is neither on the context menu nor accessible with Ctrl C Ctrl V. You can, however, drag and drop files to and from the Bandizip window.

Just what I needed!5 starsby LowStrung (Read all my 7 reviews)
I had been looking for a way to improve Windows Explorer for a long time, and Clover fits the bill perfectly. It uses one of the simplest approaches to management of multiple drives and folders in a single window. It looks very nice on my Windows 7 netbook, and is completely compliant with the OS. In fact it changes nothing in Windows Explorer itself except for the addition of tabs and bookmarks, and an improvement in Explorer's appearance. There is something missing, although not a deal-breaker: According to the license document shipped with Clover, the update feature can be disabled in the settings screen, but I've found no such option there, and if you happen to be offline when looking at the About dialog, you'll see an error message that the download site can't be found. Otherwise, Clover is an excellent choice for making life simpler. Its green clover leaf logo should have four leaves instead of three, because it's a lucky find!

Very handy, reasonably safe for all users5 starsby Harlan (Read all my 49 reviews)
This is "just" a GUI to the FF settings, but included in that is a well-organized interface, a reminder of the many settings that are available, and appropriate safety warnings. I used it to allow SSL security, which FF disabled by default and thereby locked me out of most of my financial and merchant accounts. While I was in there, I tweaked several other settings. Each tweak was a minor improvement, but together they made FF more pleasant for me to use, and I wouldn't have even thought of most of them had they not been presented so conveniently.
