RISING Antivirus Free Edition RISING Antivirus Free Edition

Only good for one year 2 stars
Contacted the author-you can use the free version for one year then you either need to pay money or uninstall it and reinstall a new version. Seems odd but that is straight from the horses mouth. Price: Free

Firefox Extension Backup (FEBE) Firefox Extension Backup (FEBE)

Kind of useless 2 stars
The problem is that when Firefox updates most extensions dont so you would be left with a new version of firefox with some non working extensions-so good for bookmarks and passwords but bad for extensions. Price: Free

Photo! Editor Photo! Editor

The healing tool is awesome but I cannot see all the buttons on 800x600 and there is no option to remove the right click context menu on images-I wish they would add that option,otherwise works great. Price: Free

Very reliable but 4 stars
Really the best I have used so far but very ugly! Sorry to say that but it looks pretty bad but I use it only as it has no problems-I guess I can live with it's appearance.. Price: Free

The software developer responded to this review on Jul 10, 2007: There are serious bugs in v1.0.0. Immediate upgrade to v1.0.1 is highly recommended.

Xvid Media Codec Xvid Media Codec

Xvid the best 5 stars
I use it only-less intrusive than Divx and will decode Divx 5 so you dont need to install that to play the videos-only thing is that it is open source so be careful where you download -I have never heard of this site so make a restore point first...but should be fine.Only reason I say this is as it was not tested by Snapfiles. [Editor: It was tested by us, just not rated.] Price: Free

View Box Player View Box Player

Yuk! 1 stars
What,do you need like a super large screen resolution to see this? 800x600 dont cut it plus weather would not do anything,needs no installation so worth a try but who would want this-just use a tabbed browser and have youtube on a tab?? Price: Free

Ashampoo ClipFinder HD Ashampoo ClipFinder HD

Boring 2 stars
Why use software to find videos? I dont speak German so those other sites are useless - may as well just search Youtube.... Price: Free

BartPE BartPE

Easy to build but hard to use 3 stars
Seems easy to build the boot CD - if you have a dell computer you need a plugin called fixdellxp which you can get on the faq page-you have to add this to the cd before you burn it. My only complaint is that there is no documentation on how to use the CD-it includes A43 file manager which can browse files but can you run exe's? Can you run the system restore exe? Price: Free

ThumbaWumba ThumbaWumba

Old version better 1 stars
I have been using 1.2 for a long time and love it-this version much harder to use as in adding background images etc...I will stick with 1.2 and the author still has it on his site to download. Price: Free

MuralPix MuralPix

Works well 3 stars
I like it somewhat but way too many settings for me-should also have an option to display landscape images at full screen. [Editor: You can run full-screen wallpapers, just disable the frame option and set margins to 0] Price: Free

USBDeview USBDeview

A pleasure 4 stars
As most of his software very useful indeed-just wish he would pack all his programs into one package-that would be a great arsenal! Price: Free

pcBaseline pcBaseline

Nice but.... 2 stars
Needs 1024x769 screen resolution to see everything-in addition it should monitor itself as uninstalling leaves all kinds of junk on your PC as well as in the registry. Price: Free

RocketDock RocketDock

I am impressed 5 stars
I tried a version of this a while ago and hated it-this version is very fast and I like it! Price: Free

Sarbyx TrayClock Sarbyx TrayClock

Neato 4 stars
Finally a tray clock I can read! I like it-it really could use a skin browser window but I only liked 10 or so skins so just go into the skin folder and delete what you dont want-will shorten the menu. Price: Free

BCArchive BCArchive

Junk 1 stars
I dont like to use this term but I am being honest-installs fine and works but XP ran really slow after install and when I went to uninstall it took 50 seconds for windows to find my control panel?? Try it if you want but make a restore point first.... Price: Free

Roxio MediaTicker Roxio MediaTicker

Nasty 1 stars
Agree with Snapfiles Review plus it tried to run Installshield Update Service after intallation -also installs a Roxio Update Manager........ The main pics cannot be resized and if you click on the edit picture button it takes you to roxios site-I dont like this program,neat idea but a pain..... Price: Free

The software developer responded to this review on Sep 25, 2006: Thanks for the comments - they ll help us to improve our products in the future. BTW, the update manager stuff is to ensure that you always have the latest version of the product. We thought users would want that feature. Perhaps in the next version, we ll provide a way to turn it off. Thanks again!

Free Launch Bar Free Launch Bar

Use caution 1 stars
Installs fine but when dragging a folder onto it it moved the entire folder-did not just make a shortcut like the quick launch does! Yikes!! Price: Free

Fresh Diagnose Fresh Diagnose

Nice but... 4 stars
Works well but the registration thing bugs me. I dont get this company. Best thing to do is use a disposable email address so they dont spam you! I know you can opt out of the emails but then they still have your email... Price: Free

Bitmap to Icon Wizard Bitmap to Icon Wizard

Boring 2 stars
Takes too long and besides most graphics progams will export an image to an icon-before using this application you have to resize your pic to 256x256 anyway.......too many steps Price: Free

Very difficult 3 stars
I am sure it has all the features but I dont have a degree from MIT so I cannot figure it out.... Price: Free Trial ($14.99)

ThreatFire ThreatFire

Works well 4 stars
Appears to block a lot of things as far as my testing went,does not use much ram only thing I dont like is no way to disable it starting with windows-I am a dial-up user and only want to run it while online. Price: Free

nFLVPlayer nFLVPlayer

Works well 5 stars
I tried 3 other players and this is the lightest and least intrusive-does not mess up the registry plus it looks nice.Flv format stinks but I guess we will need a player from time to time-this is the one. Price: Free

Quick Zip Quick Zip

Ugly and irritating 2 stars
The Gui is butt ugly plus you can right click on a zip file and choose to have Quickzip unzip it but it opens the programs Gui then closes it-bugs me! Price: Free

Porta Porta

Very nice 4 stars
Makes nice looking albums very quickly the only downside is to view the original image it pops up a javascript window-cannot figure out how to disable that but still nice and uninstalls very cleanly. Price: Free

PhotoMeister PhotoMeister

Very plain 2 stars
Does web galleries, slidehows and screensavers very plain-plus why does it have to import the photos-it then stores them wasting drive space? It works fine but who really needs this? Price: Free

CCleaner CCleaner

Excellent but be cautious 4 stars
Love the program but the version here is bundled with the yahoo toolbar-not spy or adware but people should at least know this-yes you can choose not to install the toolbar but there are other versions on the site you can download that are free of this plus the size is only 500kb or so on that version-should make note of this. [Editor: You will be downloading the no-toolbar version from us] Price: Free

Good software-just be sure to check the links it finds as bad-it only had an error on a few of mine. Price: Free

FontPage FontPage

I dont understand 2 stars
Yes it works fine but such a small interface as well as not being able to change colors-view the fonts in 3d is useless as you cannot do anything with them afterwards-I like Amp viewer better..... Price: Free

Multiple Image Resizer .NET Multiple Image Resizer .NET

Really nice 4 stars
Batch crops better than anything else-take a little practice but well worth the effort-only negative is that bmp to gif conversion is just ok. Price: Free
