SpaceSniffer download
A nice graphical view of files, already in the list. No install required and doesn't run in the background.

Folder Size - Freeware file size analysis. Check the directory sizes, folder sizes and file sizes on your computer with this freeware tree size analysis tool.
I like WinDirStat. The link is in my sig.
I've used WDS for years. I love the graphics. It's a shame the port to 64 bit seems to be stalled though. I don't think the 32 bit version knows how to get around the folder redirection that Wow64 uses. But for speed I haven't seen anything come close to WizTree. Reads MFTs and is lightning fast. Of course for that reason it's limited to NTFS.
Yes Miles ZI like the graphics in both to be honest and I like the way that Folder Size even breaks down individual folders.

I might even try the Space Sniffer to Gary always room for more LOL!!

I'm not sure about OpenOffice any more since Oracle sold it to Apache. LibreOffice is a fork of OpenOffice and seems to be undergoing more development than OpenOffice.

Generally it's not a good idea to run more than one real time protection type program. In fact I don't run any as they just meddle with the system. I don't like running my machine to accommodate this or that av. But running more than one "shield" is asking for disaster.

Yes, LibreOffice is another development of OpenOffice that has stop growing at about v3.4.x., two years ago.

LibreOffice is at v3.6.4.3 and have very good extensions to work with + language packs and is well integrated into Windows 7 UI despite its heavy install.

Yup, LibreOffice is the one.

Maybe LibreOffice should have "(active fork of the inactive OpenOffice)" in the list of apps. I think this has come up a couple of times.

It has replaced OpenOffice in all the Linux distributions now.
