FYI, I recently tried Magibon recipe with the latest version (2.x) and it seems to be working still...

1. Download Portable Launcher. http://usb.smithtech.us/apps/downloads/xplorer2.lite.portable.exe
2. Download Xplorer2 LITE: http://zabkat.com/xplorer2_liteTB_setup.exe
3. Install v1.8.1.4, select your language, uncheck all options, becareful to not install the toolbar.
4. Choose location, install.
5. Copy & save installed files except "uninstall.exe".
6. Uninstall Xplorer2, remove left over key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ZabaraKatranemia Plc]
7. Extract Portable Launcher.
8. Delete all files in App > xplorer2_lite.
9. Paste files from Xplorer2 v1.8.1.4 in it's place.

The reason you want to use the launcher is it makes Xplorer2 stealth. If you use the official version, it adds 1 key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ZabaraKatranemia Plc

actually, they're still offering the lite version, and the latest version is but it's not that easy to find. you have to go to "downloads" and then select "download mirrors" to the left.

Today, Q-Dir is indeed the best File Manager

This rules! I'm a long term fan. I'll check out cubic explorer as i'm always lookin for nice stuff.

I personally recommend Cubic Explorer, as it is tabbed and customizable. It also has a nice drop stack feature. It is also VERY fast, usually it is faster than windows explorer.
