    The way it works - 4 stars
    The pricing - 2 stars

    Does anyone really think that a one purpose extension to Windows is worth $54? I can wait for Acrobat to open a good long time before it might be worth that amount.

    Have a .pdf file, right mouse click on it and see what you can do with it. Worked on secured pdfs too. I had to split a 4 page into 2 and 2 and this worked GREAT took 2 seconds.
