  1. Rarst,

    I have not tried PC Wizard. Will definitely check that out. I know if you recommend it; then, it is good!

    SIW is one I have followed for years; primarily due to the author being constantly on top of the changes out there and adapting the software accordingly.

    Thank you for sharing PC Wizard with us…



  2. Cappydawg,

    The portable version of SIW is the only way I use it… You are right about it being around for many years. The developer constantly keeps SIW current!

    Thanks for visiting…
