I really like this simple program. I used it first to hide/disable a corrupted Magic ISO contextual menu in mere seconds. Then later on I learned about some features of Explorer that could be turned off using this program, so I did that. It worked both times without any problems. I like that you can undo the changes too if you like. Good program. Thanks for updating this.

Love this program, recently had the dreaded explorer crash and this program allowed me to easily identify the culprit, and a uninstall/reinstall of the offending (acronis) software fixed my issue. Would have spent an eternity without this software. Should be part of Windoze.

Faust, Daniel Feenberg is (according to LinkedIn) currently an IT Director at the National Bureau of Economic Research, so Wikipedia's label of "economist" appears to be a mistake. Also reference the 2006 NIST Special Publication.... so which computer scientists claim any data can be recovered after one pass? Also, I thought it was generous to write that each cleaner probably finds things the other doesn't and that CCleaner is older and more mature. CCleaner is not a bad tool and certainly does many things well.

Used this to clean up more than 6 gigs of information off a reasonably old Win 7 x64 machine recently. I don't know that it had a major impact on speed, but certainly like that extra 6 gigs. Love this program.

Great Programme but I can't get it to install in Windows 7.
Any hints??

@ Middle Richard

the whole point of this forum is "Portable" Freeware.

thus, you don't have to install.
use "Universal Extractor" and extract the installer.
then you can use MP3directcut without installation.
read above for detailed instructions.

You can get Universal Extractor here:

@Magibon - mp3DirectCut doesn't use an installer; it uses a self-extracting archive.
