      Hi

      That looks interesting but to be honest I'm not too keen to download and run an executable to do this.

      PS. There's really no need to post all in bold - we'll see your post fine without it!

      Your choice - personally, I don't see the need to clutter up my system or take the risk, however small

      I Have used this app, And to be honest was,nt too impressed and the free package is limited, If you want more you pay. I prefer the online based ones free and nothing to download.
