IMHO, currently the best .nfo and .diz file viewer coupled with a pretty decent text editor; NFOPad can save its settings to the registry or in an INI file.

Totally agree with Midas that this is the best .nfo / .diz viewer out there. Been using it for several years. Keep up the great work and THANKS!
