There are none, this program is malware.
This program piggybacked itself onto my system while I was updating PDFLite. It immediately removed access to the properties menu and the "open with" context menu. All associations for anything I opened thereafter were altered, and every time I opened a file it would ask to select a "default" program, which wouldn't stay default for long, as it would ask every single time. As soon as I realized what was going on, I immediately uninstalled the software. My problems did not end there however. After the (un)installation process any file type that was opened while File Association Manager was running no longer had a default program and would not open, and as an added bonus clicking the "open with" option produced an error message. Trying to restore Windows' file associations via the control panel was an exercise in futility, as it didn't appear to do anything. If it wasn't for System Restore, most of the files on my computer would still be inaccessible.
This program is malware, do NOT download it. And if you find yourself in the unfortunate position of having this program tag along with something else you installed, I suggest you uninstall it IMMEDIATELY and hope you set up a restore point.
as above repaired wrong ass immediately
nothing at all
fast, reliable, no fuss did the job well
If you need to change some rogue file extensions in windows, especially, in my case, when the buttons are greyed out in the XP folder options view section, this program will do everything you need it to. I easily set up new associations for SHN files after I had installed a plugin to play SHN through mediaPlayer, I found I could only click the files and they instantly played. I preferred them to be clicked and added to the playlist instead of wiping it out every time. So I got this program and now I can add to the playlist in a number of audio programs!
Erm..the only cons I can see here are the very poor reviews. The editors review gives this utility a bad name here! Also the other reviewers are saying its rubbish when they didn't get the full program! Of course its rubbish because the downloadable demo is crippled sooo much that it won't actually change a thing on your PC! It only lets you SEE the program and how it works!
If you need this...you know you need it. take my word for it: It will work. I love it.
Other than the context menu feature to lookup file extensions on the web, not much. I was hoping this program could help prevent other programs from hijacking file associations. It doesn't notice any changes made. Download QuickAssociation 1.0.2 from PCMag...it's truely amazing and it's only 6 bucks!
• User-friendly interface.
• Does exactly what it says - manage file types.
• Accessible and fast.
• Only take care of the standard 3 characters extension - This is a big con... I hope this will get fixed in future versions...
The demo is not fully functionable.
The specific feature I wanted to try
is blocked until you buy a license.
