Reviewed ShellMenuView 1.41

Appears to be a viewer only. Still jumps you into regedit to any changing of the items.


(1) Not sure if this is possible, but upon return from regedit, refresh the content of ShellMenuView so that any editing.

Reviewed Marble for Windows 2.2.0

A couple of things:

1. Reliance on Qt. Program fails to run with missing Qt framework dlls. (a show stopper). Installer offers to run the application, but it seems it has not registered the setup properly to do so.

2. While a valiant effort,... Read full review

Reviewed Norton Security Premium 2017 v22.9.1.12

Pure clickbait. Click their link and it says the beta has concluded and offers the trial SUBSCRIPTION that will cost you $40 per year (on sale).

This has never been freeware and it never will be freeware.

Leaving a rating of 3 due to the... Read full review

5 stars for that alone. Read full review

Reviewed Adlice PEViewer (RogueKillerPE) 1.24.0

Looks to be a decent tool. However the 'premium' price of $55 PER YEAR has me wondering. Is it rent-ware? Or is it $55/year just for maintenance. Does it time-bomb back to nag mode after a year if you don't keep the payments up? So many questions,... Read full review

Reviewed Notepad++ 8.6.4

It is good to see a 64-bit version of this editor come out without having to build my own (messy). Max file size has always been a hard NP++ limitation. File size is really the only beef I have had with this editor. Now it is perfect for a free... Read full review

Reviewed WinZip for Windows 27.0

Zip compression has been out in the public domain for over a decade now. There really is no place in the software market for a compressor that demands such a high buy in PLUS an ongoing support cost. There are far more low cost (ie. WinRAR) / no... Read full review
