    "This is an application for XP, but i'm not so sure it would be "Best" it helps fix driver issues according to the description, but it doesn't seem to be that useful other than that. "

    "My son wanted to play a GameBoy Advanced emulator on the computer so I set him up with No$GBA. No later than an hour or so passes before he tells me that it keeps shutting down on him. Not that good of a program."

    "Is your computer slow and laggy? Have you checked to see what your disk usage is? Mine was high yet there was a bunch of stuff that I wasn't using that came pre installed with my computer. So I deleted stuff but to ensure that my computer would run quickly I purchased WinDirStat. It really is an excellent cleanup tool that made my computer run much faster. Get now if you are running Windows and need to increase your speed."

    "One of the great things about this audio player is that it's free, so you can try it out risk free. I really liked it and enjoyed the format and thought it was easy to use. There might be better audio players out there. I haven't tried that many, so I can't really speak for that, but I Thought this one met my need spretty well. "
