    I use UltraISO but here lately is been getting slower and less reliable. For example, I just tried extracting a Install.wim from a ISO and it kept getting messed up during the transfer and was fairly slow. Another example is how slow its getting opening ISO's.

    I used 7zip, it opened the ISO and extracted the install.wim fairly quick.

    Someone please suggest a better ISO client, payed or freeware, just has to be good. :worthy:

    I have downloaded it and will test it over the next couple days, that doesn't mean no one else should make suggestions :)

    How can a program start to get slower and less reliable if it was working to start with especially UltraISO it is one of the best ones going about I personally have never had a problem with it.

    Do not know urie, I cleared its cache and it started function better but I have NEVER had to do that before. I have used UltraISO for a long time as well but it seems I may need to look else where for my ISO clients.

    Not sure how I feel about PowerISO. When extracting files it does so to a directory then copies it to the directory I wanted it to be extracted to. Seems like a waist of time.

    Looks like that you produce the problem on your own.

    Firstly: I never use the desktop for any storage, even not temporary!
    Secondly: I open the apps, open the location of the ISO file, chose the ISO File, click Extract and chose my destination Dir! That's all! All How and where I like to have them!

    Work smart not hard.

    If things wasn't meant to be opened via the file association then we wouldn't have such a thing.

    And my desktop is my work directory, even if it wasn't, come on, drag and drop, DRAG AND DROP. Doesn't do that with ANY other program that I know of/have used.

    Work secure and if needed hard! I don't "play" around, I would like the have things done, in first place, if possible!

    If it works for you, fine, I don't have problems with that. If you like to work on desktop, fine too, it's off limit for me! Drag'n Drop? I use it a lot but different than you, I believe! For that I use at my office 3 Monitors and at home 2! No need to work on desktop!

    But that didn't solves your problems, which I believe you created on your own, reading your posts!

    OK, back to PowerISO. You could not use Drag'n Drop for to place .ISO files in the first Column that you could do to the File Manager in PowerISO. But is it a big deal just to click on Open, go to the storage DIR and chose the ISO file?! You would have them in an DIR already on some Drive, didn't you? Or you fist place them on Desktop and after that to the target?

    Anyway luckly I didn't work on your computer, you do on your own, and if you like the way you use, so it be, no problems for me. But don't tell the apps isn't good, it's just you don't like the way it needs to be used.

    Might not be nice to use it, but Desktop is nothing else but a folder like ANY other folder in C:\users\%username%\Desktop

    Than tell why the files I place on Desktop didn't show up in that Folder?! I just place 5 files on Desktop and even after restarting the computer, those files are not shown in the Folder Desktop! Deleted those files from Desktop and noe they'
    re disappears completely, even not available in Recycle bin! And that's exactly the point why I didn't use the Desktop for other thing than just Shortcuts!

    @ pisthai That's a strange result and certainly not one I can duplicate .. Maybe it has something to do with permissions?
