    Craps out on Win 7 x64 - System service Fail! and you have to manually kill the process since it's taking a lot of CPU.
    It's working on x32...

    - CTRL+TAB for switching tabs

    Excellent, little by little the author is starting to use standard Windows keystrokes :-). I hope one day he'll also get rid of the "Main" menu and call it

    Please.... I have two decades of Alt+F in my hands and brain, don't
    be "creative" in that area.

    Excellent program, not perfect.

    Text is horrendous. Seems to have a slow refresh frequency, causing the text to appear thin and jumpy with insufficient contrast. Selecting larger font and using Windows ClearType feature doesn't help.

    Tray icon is so annoying I turned it off, not very useful to me anyway, you may find it useful.

    I love the initial security scan, I wish it could be used every time I start the program. Maybe there's a way to change that option in the INI file!

    Gets 4.5/5! Highly recommended!

    Even though the option to check for updates at startup is disabled by default, it still tried to use the net.
    There is no way to turn off the extremely irritating popup which happens when you glance over the tray icon.
    Sticking with process x for now.

    System Explorer 3.9.5
    the version number for the portable is showing as System Explorer Portable 2.9.5 but when I visit the home page I find that both the installer and portable versions should have the same #.
