Comodo Antivirus detected malicious item :Packed.Win32.MUPX.Gen@129019204" in ifranview_plugins_430_setup.exe. I wonder if this is false alert?
It would be good if the UI can be improved. For eaxmple zooming in/out always tends to recenter the image rather than using the current cursor position as the centroid for zooming. Panning the image is also very slow and tedious.
10.0b (Jan 2, 2011)
The software is generally good - easy to use. There are a few issues that seems to be overlooked:
1. The s/w is NOT wide screen friendly - many menus (especially the creating DVD menu to allow selection of video,audio, params) overshoots the screen and makes it very difficult to click the OK button.
2. The marker and region appears too close. Many time when creating or moving a marker you can end up creating a region and this is real messy, There is no feature to delete/reset region and you have to drag the start and stop region point back to the extreme left otherwise the s/w will only render that small section. So far this is the most frustrating issue.
3. There appears to be duplicate settings for rendering DVDs. There is a File/Properties and then there is the custom menu during DVD creation.
4. DVDarchitect will always re-render the audio regardless of what you select in Vegas. This is strange and frustrating. I do not understand why there is no option to render audio without requiring re-rendering dvdarchitect.
5. There is no backward compatibility - it cannot create VCDs! You have to reconsider if you want a more general package that will write VCD, DVD & BlueRay - otherwise you have to buy more than 1 s/w.
6. Somehow it does not want to import videos created by divX.
3.43 Beta 2 (Aug 26, 2008)
Generally a good software.
Unfortunately, it shares the same fate with majority of off-line browsers by being shut-out by many web-sites because it does a depth-first download instead of current document-first followed by depth. By doing depth-first the app randomly download items and will appear as a intruder/scanner/etc ... and many web-sites will shut you off.

Ever since ver 2+ firefox have been giving me problems with SVG graphics. It just plain refuse to display them when firefox 1.5 works beautifully.

Yes its overrated. There are more problems with v3 compared to v2x.
It cannot save some web pages now as it keep waiting to grab photobucket linkes images etc. It should just ignore timeout files and continue to save the rest. Saving web pages now uses the download file control to save and causes current file transfer to abort in some situations when trying to save some "badly designed" web pages or pages that firefox cannot handle.
They have now grabbed 10 (7 rows+2 line) rows of my bookmark dropdown list. Space is a premium on widescreen laptops!
It has lost the ability to set min font size and therefore cannot be used to view some sites that uses very very small fonts. Why do they keep changing the plugin interface? Why does every version causes current plugins to fail?
I am gonna back to v2....

Typical of Microsoft - too much boasting and s/w does not work. After install, I tried to convert a word DOC to ODT format using save as. All Word did wa to pop up a message saying that I needed to install Word 2007 Filters first. Whats this? I have Word 2003 and the install program correctly detected it as Word 2003 and installs fine.
Also, only ODT format is avail (but not working in Word). The Open spreadsheet, etc are NOT supported.

Unfortunately I got IE7 forced down my throat! MS does it via security updates and refuses if I do not install IE7. majority of PC setup to allow automatic updats will get IE7 installed automatically. Your reporting is incorrect - you should break up the number of downloads into (A) Free & Willing user downloads and (B) Forced downloads.
Making 100 million copies and giving it for free does not mean there will be 100 million users

George Orwell's "1984" has certainly lived up to its promise....here comes BIG BROTHER.
The feature is good and bad. Good in that virus writers can be tracked down readily. Now Visual Studio 2005 etc already encrypts your CPU & HW info into the pseudo code already. With DRM and HDD serial no etc, we can pinpoint the PC on which each and every new virus was created on and travelled thru.
The bad new is that this legitimizes "SPY ware" operations by the Big Guns RIAA etc. Everytime you play a tune (genuinely purchased) it would want to know which CPU HDD S/w ver it is being run and send info for "validation" which allows them to operate "legal spyware" - spying on your music/vide tastes etc...
And why would it be cheaper? In fact such HDD will be more expensive as manufacturers will launch it as a premium HDD. So far RIAA etc have always insisted on this and that, but cost of the end product is always borned by the consumer. I don not see this being any different.
