    I took a look at the software installed on my pc and noticed that I only use 5 apps you need to pay for.
    Well, actually I pirate them...
    So I'm looking for freeware alternatives now.
    With Windows 8 coming, isos can be mounted without the need for additional software.
    Winrar is replaced by 7zip.
    Windows 8 will have hyperV which is way better than the crappy virtualpc, so that replaces VMware too.
    So the only non-free software left is Office, as Visual studio ultimate is and win8 probably gets on MSDNAA.

    The only thing left now is a something to edit isos.
    Here's my list:
    Ultraiso
    WinImage
    WinIso
    Isobuster
    Magiciso
    Poweriso

    But it's all non-free, and daemontools lite is ├╝bercrap when it comes to something else than mounting.

    Does anyone know of a good program to do this? And preferably something that doesn't install or has an option to remove the virtual drive if it even comes with mounting support. Windows 8 can mount so I don't need more.

    Try Iso Toolkit, a freeware NO INSTALL iso tool

    I'll have a look at kingoffice, although I think I'm going to stick to MSO anyway.
    I use ultraiso now and I know it's the lord of all iso tools.
    7zip does extract iso files yes, and maybe saves them I don't know. But you can't view/edit the volume label, extract/insert bootfiles etc, create floppy images, view the image propperties (like which program initially made the iso), write an iso/floppy image to disk (to make bootable usb). All are features I already used.

    If there is no alternative I might consider buying ultraiso. But it looks a bit to me like it's dieing actually. There are updates (though not as frequent as it used to be a couple of years ago) and it does everything I want. But it looks like it's falling behind when it comes to the ui. Don't understand me wrong, it works awesome, but it just feels a bit outdated sometimes. I don't want to pay for software that becomes outdated in 2 years you know.

    the iso toolkit isn't really what I'm looking for, the mount functionality is replaced by win8 and the rest can be done by imgburn.

    Yah... the UI is quite outdated. I think UltraISO 10 should be published with WPF like metro UI ;)

    UltraISO is good........ but not free, but you can get a working serial from anywhere.

    Yep I'm going to stick to ultraiso. Btw I just noticed it has the latest lame mp3 encoder (3.99) built in, so no need to have it somewhere separately = rep++; for ultraiso.

    Not at all. MagicISO & Nero do handle true iso perfectly as well (at least as far as hash is concerned)
