Strange and not worth the time2 starsby Harlan (Read all my 56 reviews)
Installation routine is weird, in that it creates a desktop shortcut and runs an executable file, but then apparently deletes them upon first use. Runs slowly and is not easily cancelled. Automatically shuts down any open browser before it starts to run, but they can be re-opened once the run gets going. It scans all browsers and related areas in the registry, and appears to be pretty thorough in finding potential problems. It gives no context in the online display (which was distorted and displayed improperly on my 1920x1080 Win7 display). The results shown on the screen provide no context (what the problem is with each identified item, or which browser is affected). There is a text log file created (in mixed FrenchEnglish) which includes hints as to both the problem and the browser, but only hints. The online information is extensive and readily available for each item one-at-a-time, but you need to read French. I don't see any reason to use this in preference to the many other available programs with the same function.

The best of the firefox clones, but!5 starsby henerey773 (Read all my 15 reviews)
Waterfox does a great job of auto-importing one's FF Profile, and then runs complex web pages a bit faster (it seems, for me). All good so far. BUT, next time I ran standard FF 45.01 my "about:config" "xpinstall.signatures.required", tweaked to a 'false' toggle, it was reset to the default 'true'. This results in some unsigned extensions not working. For me the obvious one was my Speed Dial home page, which still oddly worked in W'fox but not in FF. I had to go into the FF about:config and toggle it to false. Who knows what other tweaks it may have reset?

Needs iTunes to work! 1 starsby kar_mc158
I am trying to manage my ipod touch without installing itunes on my computer, which is why I downloaded this. Kind of defeats the purpose when you have to install itunes to use this. Waste of time!

Great browser4 starsby Mog89R (Read all my 4 reviews)
I have two browsers Opera 12.18 and Vivaldi. I keep old Opera because of its email management. If Vivaldi managed my emails I would have only one browser. It amazes me how customable is Vivaldi and I like that. I would not regard it a slow browser

Awesome movievideo manager and server5 starsby rga.dawg395
This is an awesome local application that uses a robust media server to let other devices stream content from the server. Once installed you can manage all your movie/video content from the server computer, then access the content from multiple devices, or from the web, or from cloud space. Some of the features are limited in the Free version, mainly the number of devices you can stream from, and some of the other features like Movie Trailers, Previews, Cloud access, etc. All of the features are enabled with a Plex Membership, which is a very nice value at 39.99 per year. Even without a Plex membership (Plex Pass) you can do quite a lot with it. I use it mainly with my samsung smart TV. The samsung smart TV has a Plex app which makes playing the content very easy. I also have a Win7 Plex player on my laptop, and a Plex player on my Android

Labour saver4 starsby paddy.c12499 (Read all my 5 reviews)
Confess I approached this neat little app with some trepidation but found that it basically does what it says it will do, with some minor qualifications. SnailDriver will install its download folder (called "Snaildriverbackup", oddly)to D unless switched to C, something I failed to notice which resulted in it doing its business in my System Reserved drive. Operator error! SnailDriver found and downloaded sixteen outdated drivers, half the installations failing. Scanned again and used the check list to repeat the procedure in blocks of four, and it worked perfectly! Also offered to update my fractionally dated graphics driver,which I personally wouldn't recommend. Could use a tad more configurability, but hey, its free! A keeper for me.

No free filename encryption1 starsby computergenius (Read all my 4 reviews)
It apparently does not work without signing up with an online account. You have to go through lots of hoops to find out that filename encryption is not free and you must pay for their service on a yearly rate. Total waste of time.

A genuinely excellent piece of kit this, and virtually idiot proof. Tested to date with two flavours of Linux and my venerable copy of XP, and it has performed flawlessly. Beats others I have tried by a large margin, and I will almost certainly purchase the pro version.

My favorite file manager in windows5 starsby hreeus (Read all my 3 reviews)
I've tried quite a few file managers in the past years but I keep coming back to Q-dir. I've had no issues running both portable and installation versions on Win xp, Win 7, Win 8 and now on Win 10. Program settings can be a little awkward but for a free program I can't complain.

Uninstall takes hours3 starsby jon_harren541
Search on and read about Panda uninstall before you install this product. Read "Panda uninstall hell" and "10 manual steps to clean Panda out of your system". It takes hours. Also read about the time Panda decided Panda was malware and hosed PC registries. Panda slowed on me over time; I uninstalled and reinstalled; it was OK for a while then same thing. I uninstalled and replaced. Panda leaves protected files & programs that can't be deleted from services, startup, registry, ... without lengthy manual intervention. I suspect that ex-adobe folks helped Panda with their design.

Excellent5 starsby mcr0161 (Read all my 2 reviews)
I've used this for several years. It's one of the few which has the "streaming fast start" option when encoding MP4. That is essential if you're making files for use on websites, otherwise the video won't start playing until the entire file has downloaded. The "CPU Priority" setting is another bonus. So XMedia Recode can be left chugging away encoding without bringing other activities on the PC to a standstill. Many thanks to the author.

Free. not intuitive, but free.2 starsby brian_c_1973376 (Read all my 2 reviews)
To be honest, I don't know why this program is so popular and gets such great reviews. Now I'm sure it has every feature you could possibly want in a freeware program like this one but the problem is that the interface is just not intuitive. I don't like to feel like I need to take a class to learn how to use a piece of software that should be (could be) very simple if they put the effort into making it so. It appears likely that this interface appeals to a certain type of person who probably learned on this interface and doesn't find it confusing. Oh well. It's free, right? Enjoy it if you can.

Finally, good journal software for windows5 starsby vdubgolf9647 (Read all my 2 reviews)
At startup, I was immediately impressed when Journaley automatically detected my Dropbox installation and allowed me to place my journal in it with one click. I feelThe software feels very polished and is GREAT to use on a day by day basis. Attaching photos is easy and love the simple tagging system. I felt relieved when I looked at the Dropbox folder and the journal entries are simple XML files and the photos are photos! I can't stand when software puts your data in a proprietary container that you can only access with their software.

Excellent password generator5 starsby objective (Read all my 9 reviews)
Those who have used the password generator in KeePass Password Safe will find PWGen familiar. This is a powerful password generator, but is quite easy to use. PWGen gives you full control over the type of password(s) you create, including which character types to include. It gathers entropy automatically, which is something most password generators do not do. PWGen is thoughtfully designed in that its windows can all be resized, and they remember their sizeposition. (I won't go on about this because in the past, I have been ridiculed on this site for addressing interface concerns.) My one complaint is a minor one, which is that the only way to remove character sets requires editing the .INI file directly.

LibreOffice screenshot


A fantastic office suite5 starsby OnePiece (Read all my 10 reviews)
LibreOffice never fails to impress me with its rapid development cycle and continuous addition of (useful!) new features. By now it already incorporates all essential and convenience (like "hide empty space") features I like in other office suites, and there are some "hidden" gems in it, like the excellent LibreLogo programming language to create drawings. Stability-wise it is on par or better than Microsoft Office. Its user interface uses the now "old school" multi-toolbar and menu-oriented access, but for me, as a long time computer user, it is a plus. (Still, since the new 5.2 version they even implemented a single-toolbar mode.) Interoperability with Microsoft Office can be a bit of a problem, but it is possible. It is best to use LibreOffice on its own. Since it is multi-platform, collaborating on Windows and Linux can be done seamlessly. One of the best freeware ever created.

Super!!!5 starsby virtuallyalyssa937
I've used SUPERAntiSpyware for at least 10 years now and I've never found anything remotely as effective. I'm one for doing a bucket-load of research and have tried a multitude of programs but they all pale in effectiveness and efficiency to this one. Tried 'em all and read all their reviews ... none of them compare. Easy to download, activate and use ... thorough ... reliable ... and there's always a marked difference in PC speed and function straight after I've scanned and rebooted. I've made do with the free version for years, but have decided today, after reading the responses the developers have given to others who have left reviews, I'm won over. They seem really professional and proud of their product. Well done guys! and THANK YOU! There's a LOT of rubbish out there that causes glitches with other programs, downloads hidden extras that do the same - SUPERAntiSpyware is clean and smooth and just does the job! Again ... THANK YOU!

Little software support & customer service.1 starsby wmoore1131661
They only support the software for 1 or 2 years, then you have to buy an upgrade, which cost over 200 USD. Per their email to me... "reached end of support life...severe compatibility issues....obsolete version. We suggest you keep your e-Campaign up-to-date." With the "special discount" to keep the software up-to-date approx. every 2 years, the cost is over 200 USD - did it once, no more.

This puppy is your faithful watchdog5 starsby henerey773 (Read all my 15 reviews)
Not every INTRUSIVE program is a virus or malware or even identified as a PUP, potentially unwanted program. Many are innocent of any bad intentions, they just want to install some service they need into your start-ups. To them it's innocent. But if you want to either PREVENT this, or Allow this TEMPORARILY, or just browse through a list of all your startups now and then to enable or disable (that's right, it keeps the disabled ones in the list) then this puppy is your faithful watchdog.

What again was my username and password here?4 starsby henerey773 (Read all my 15 reviews)
In case for any reason your brain or browser doesn't remember your credentials (brand new browser?) this is your rescue. Just know that many anti-malware programs will ID and quarantine the password stuff in this. So you better know how to whitelist inside your security programs.

Easy-peasy ip changer5 starsby henerey773 (Read all my 15 reviews)
Easy as pie to select a different Location, which gives your pc a different IP, for privacy. I checked with a couple of Check IP websites and it works. Hint, follow their suggestions and pick a location nearby your intended server. In the case of torrents from users all over, I guess just pick a locale with the desired language.

Maybe the best 2-pane ui5 starsby henerey773 (Read all my 15 reviews)
On first use, VERY VERY nice 2-pane explorer replacement. I've tried many, and the first things I look for are two abilities: toggle the list/details font SIZE Up for my 1920w monitor and old eyes. CHECK! And then, I like to mix list/details Folder names and File names (instead of separate at top-bottom). CHECK! These are both in Config/ExplorerPanel/Settings/Display. I also like the multitude of handy Buttons along the bottom, Calculate Folder Size(s) right at the top of the Tools menu, and alternate color striping in list/details view. It looks like a keeper!

I've used every virus, spyware and malware program there is over the last 20 years. SuperAntivirus is the only virus protection software that allowed me to recover from system failure. While lacking in some popular features, it never failed in what it was designed to do. It's my failsafe backup when others fail.

Excellent cd ripper4 starsby realbull2009250 (Read all my 60 reviews)
Exact Audio Copy(EAC) is a CD ripper, tagger, metadata searcher and burner which uses AccurateRip to verify the copy. It's fairly easy to use, but setting it up may be tricky if you don't know about the calibration well. You need a good standard legit CD to help calibrate it. If you use a CD that doesn't calibrate it well, EAC will spit out CDs and only copy certain ones. I had this problem and wrote an earlier review and gave a lower score, but I researched the problem more, found the solution and rewrote my review. The calibrating may be a problem for some who don't understand how to calibrate EAC and end up having problems with it, so it isn't that simple to set-up for everyone. But when you calibrated it correctly it's simple to use from there. I prefer EAC over other rippers because I favor the AccurateRip feature that is rarely found in others. EAC will rip your CD perfectly or near-perfect. You can be at ease to know that your music files will have no crackling or distortions that may ruin your speakers(it happened to me once). I can only complain about the GUI it's really old looking and needs an update, but it's functional. Overall, it is the best ripper to use. It's free and has all the tools others may have, but the AccurateRip feature is the main reason to have it.
