  3. Yes i agree but for once i'd like to see the site post some software that hasnt been around the forum block a couple of times, come on man we all know this software, do some real mouse work and find some nuggets, be different for a change.

    This software works great, I've been using it on my flashdrive for years.
    Others may even want to consider using it on their computer it's perfect for occasional use as it doesn't bog the system down with resources. The OpenOffice suite is especially awesome, and can do most of what MS Office can do. :)

    You might want to check the running processes on your PC, I've had that problem many times and it's simply because the PC has "too much too think about"...
