XE Release 641 Beta (Nov 24, 2013)
Over the years, I have tried just about every shell out here, including this one and Total Commander registered. It is a decent program but support and features are an issue. I found DirOpus by GPSoft, an Australian company, works like no other. DirOpus is well worth a look. Not free but gives you a 60 day trial to make sure it works for you. Support is outstanding and I have NEVER had an issue with this program.

When attempting to download this release, you must download a download manager in order to get the program. This seems to always lead to malware and unwanted popups later. So, unless I can download it directly and with no "extra" programs being installed without my approval, I I will have to remove this program and use something else.
Sad, this was a decent program,,

Agree that Becky is a good email program. Email clients are "to the eye of the beholder" in value. Each to his own as most clients work well. The Bat is good but no Calendar, Outlook lost my email, Thunderbird updates kill installed addons, etc, etc. I have found two good ones but they are not free...Postbox is what Thunderbird should be and EMclient. Outlook replacement..I settled on EmClient as it has been solid with no crashes,lost mail. It is under active improvements but updates slow in coming.
What works for you is a good choice...

Feature rich menu for windows...works with 7 or 8 (I have it on both)/ Free version is good but if you want full control, you have to purchase the pro version which is a reasonable fee. It does a good job and works well with no "crap ware" installed.
It is a version subscription model which means you get free updates within the version you purchase but have to pay an upgrade fee when the version changes.

Started out with a rating of 5, Deducted 1 for "Speeling" in description,,,Then deducted 3 for forced install of "CrapWare" . The program may/would have some value if it did not install all the crap. Fortunately, I have a "stopper" for rude programs that try to make changes that I did not authorize, So many talented developers suffer from "control" disorders that their work will never succeed as a notable developer,,,anyone can write malware without much effort..It takes maturity and intelligence to develop serious useful application..

Author has done an excellent job with this product. It reminds me of a text shell from the past which served the DOS arena very well. I am still feeling my way around and like what I see so far. I have been using DirOpus from GpSoft which ,IMHO, is the most comprehensive and functional shell out there. It is not free but is rock solid and is highly customizable.
I will continue to watch this product. it is always nice to have an alternate.

I just emailed sales at Paragon to find out if I could install the suite on both my laptop and desktop and within 5 min i received an email back saying my message was deleted without being read due to my inquiry was classified as ++spam++. Nice! They just lost a sale. If companies post instructions for inquiries, they should make sure they are read by a person instead of some automated process.
Too bad,I will stick with Diskeeper...

If you like to have to "fiddle" with each email just to read it, then this pgm is for you. If you like having to load each HTML email in your browser just to see what is there, then this pgm is for you. I personally like to see my emails as they were sent to me without having to "fiddle" with it just to read it. Touted as "security" but IMHO is a cumbersome interface. There are a number of good free clients out there that are as good or better.

Win7 updates attempted to install IE9 but failed with a vague error message saying IE9 did not finish. That's it...no details, no clue as to what is wrong. Looked up on Web and shows all sorts of hoops I have to jump through to get IE to install...Why??...FF installed, Opera installed fine...Why not IE....I will stay with FF...

There is a simple answer for all this Riaa stuff. Without consumers, the RIAA has no product. So as consumers I suggest that any company/artist/record or what ever that is represented by the RIAA is Totally boycotted forever. Dont buy their products, music or what ever and it will soon stop.
