Why has this been released?

First it produces a MAPI2 error because the devs put in a dependency for *VISTA* flags which clearly don't exist in XP64 (by their own admission - you need to Reg hack it to stop the error) and then this pig bloats my memory footprint from under 500Mb to over 700Mb. It also slows my startup considerably and a 6000+ AM2 w/4GB and twin Seagate Barracuda ES drives is not a slow plodding box.

El Toro Poo Poo on M$ for not testing properly and even more of it for developing what has become a typical M$ product: bloat, Bloat, BLOAT. I can see why it's embedded in Vista. Are you no longer capable as a company of designing and building tight, efficient, streamlined code that isn't rife with bugs?

Get Copernic, Agent Ransack or pay the $30 for File Locator Pro.

Avoid this typical M$ Bloat.

TWO stars (it gets two because at least it does what it says, despite the shoddy coding).

Not good at all. Now when i wanted to uninstall it, it says "uninstallstring can't be found". Even after a repair this can't be uninstalled.
