FilerFrog Software

I got an e-mail from PCWorld with an editorial review of a very interesting program "FilerFrog", which I publish here for your consideration:

PCWorld ReviewedUser ReviewsEditorial Review of FilerFrog (64-bit version)

If you'd like a free way to improve on Windows Explorer (read: if you're a Windows user), try FilerFrog. This Explorer add-in offers many features that you'll wish had been built directly into the operating system. Right-click a file or folder, and FilerFrog appears on the context menu, giving you access to a wide variety of new file- and folder-management features. It's available in versions for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows OSs.

The full feature list is far too lengthy to discuss in detail, and it includes some things you may never use--but the ones you do use may become indispensable If you want a better way to manage images, FilerFrog can help. You'll be able to quickly resize any image, as well as create your own album of images. You can encrypt files to keep them private, and then decrypt them. Want to rename multiple files in one fell swoop? FilerFrog makes that a snap. There's more as well, including the ability to split files and rejoin them, and a faster way to move and copy files.

If you were an early user of FilerFrog, you'll find a variety of changes in this newest version of the program. The biggest change is that it's free--even for business users--which is certainly welcome for anyone who wants a better Windows Explorer but doesn't want to pay for it. It also now works with Windows 7. A variety of bugs have also fixed, such as one that wouldn't allow menu icons to display on some systems.

Among the new features are that you can also now modify the creation date of a file, as well as the last time it was accessed, and the last time it was modified. And you can put your company's logo on an image as well. In short, if you're looking to improve Windows Explorer with nifty extras such as managing images, the ability to split files and more, you'll want to give FilerFrog a try.

Note: This software comes in 32-bit and 64-bit versions. This is the 64-bit version, which is for 64-bit PCs running a 64-bit OS. If your PC is running a different supported OS, please download the 32-bit version instead.

My daughter Isabel, (computer programming GURU), sent me an email that I have taken very seriously. It was sent to her from one of the organizations she belong to:

Member to Member Info from our friends at the Carrabelle Chamber:

Felt this worth passing along -- with Christmas coming, I can see where this could be a real problem.

The newest virus circulating is the Package Delivery Failure Virus. You will receive an e-mail from UPS, Fed Ex or US Postal Service. It will say that they were unable to deliver a package sent to you on such-and-such a date. It then asks you to print out the invoice or shipping label attached. DON'T TRY TO PRINT THIS. IT LAUNCHES THE VIRUS! Pass this warning on to all your PC operators at work and home.
Snopes confirms that it is real.
