    @smaragdus... hahaha Actually Vista Service Pack 2 fixed a lot of remaining problems in Vista. With the right tweaked settings and disabling of some unnecessary services(quite a few services actually), Vista on my cheaper PC works fairly well. Now using it as an online media center for the living room TV and won't have to worry about security updates for a few more years.

    The rating for Total Commander remains the same... 3 stars. For those that like all that extra stuff, I guess for them it WOULD be rated higher. Would just be nice if Total Commander had the option(s) to make it more simple(dumbed down if you will) like with Windows Explorer in XP and prior while keeping some of the extra options that I would like to have.

    You mean you downgraded to Vista from XP? Amazing!
    Total Commander is great but the buying procedure is not. In fact it prevented me from purchasing it. No electronic license key delivery, only by post!?! It seem the developer of Total Commander is still living in the early 90s and does not want to earn money.

    Made way too complicated to adjust to your liking. I prefer simple functionality. Recently upgraded to Vista from XP on one PC and found Windows Explorer on Vista to be unacceptable. I've tried many alternatives and Total Commander sure wasn't it. Decided on Cubic Explorer. One drawback to Cubic Explorer is it doesn't auto-refresh properly. Still better than Vista's Windows Explorer where the main problem was trying to drag a file or folder into the right hand pane without it ending up in some other current folder. You had to move it oh so delicately to get it in without it ending up in another folder by mistake.

    Barely 3 stars.

    @oompoop - Total rubbish - That's like arguing MS Office/Windows or any beta/trial-ware which includes just about all commercial software are freeware because you can run a beta/trial for free (or until final release) - They are not freeware & neither is this.

    So no I don't Comprendo ~

    @montessa and more ...
    This special version is a B E T A , and you are not allowed to get the full price for a beta - so this is freeware.
    Comprendo?!
