    Heya folks!

    Long ago i had used a program that when installed into Windows 7 it simply remembered the size, location and settings of folders opened. I cannot find it (as my backup hard drive crashed with my programs that I used to use *bak) so I am trying to find this program. Any ideas? Thanks !:eek:

    As you may be aware, a lot of freeware does bundle some adware, even the great apps we use everyday do..... there is an "OPT-OUT" checkbox to UNcheck during installing.....if you do notwant to install the

    adware...... so watch for them......I am not sure if this utility does bundle any, just mentioning it for you and others to take note of!
