Irfanview is awesome. If you are just viewing pictures and doing minor editing (rotation, red-eye, color correction), take a look at the free Picasa program now provided by Google. It also catalogues all of the pics on your computer and you can use it to quickly search them. I use both Picasa and Irfanview. Here is the link to Picasa:

Hello,

There is no reason against installing both Irfanview and Picasa at the same time. It should not cause any system problems and then you can do a head-to-head comparison to see which you like better.

As for downloading, my first step would be to use Firefox as my web browser. It is a great, free, OS web browser and has plug-ins for most any task and this includes download managers. You can check out firefox at its plugins at:
http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/

Tom

i see..i can install both..but i cannot USE BOTH..

thing is i'm a FIREFOX user and ive been using it for logn time but never knew that it has actually a download manager plug-in..i'll just look for it on firefox website..

i heard in some say that theyre firefox runs fatser than their normal speed coz they tweaked[??] it or made something like a configuration[??] to give it a boost..might i ask if how they actually did it?? my default browser is firefox and i am using a LAN/CABLE internet and my speed range from 160-200+kbps..can you guys give me ideas on how to make my brwoser ran faster??

many thanks in adavance..

Hello,

I am confused on why you can't use both, but hopefully they will fit your needs. For ease of use, Picasa wins out and looks slick. For pure power, Irfanview is tops.

Tom

Hello,

You can have both programs open and running at the same time with no problems. For configuring Firefox, there is a small utility that has become popular called "FireTune" that automates most of the optimization tweaks, you can download it from its homepage below:
http://www.totalidea.../freestuff4.htm

Give it a try and have both programs at the same time to see there are no problems. What worried you about having both programs open at the same time?

Tom

hey gust0208 thanks..i was surprised when it took me like a total of -6 secs to open d entire geekstogo forum page when usually it takes around 13+ or even higher before..

i tried to install both and so far no problem..thanks..thing is, picasa loads a biit slow[takes time] while irfan view is fast but when it comes to fast loading still XnView loads best on my slow pc..i kinda like both of them but i realized that XnView is best when it comes to my satisfaction..i just need toi find a way on how to fix my problems with XnView..ever since i installed ZoneAlarm, spybot s&e, microsfot antispy..XnView has stopped functioning properly..do know any way on how i can fix it again??

and i just performed a thorough test scan on my pc just this past hours by following wht was on d start here link and believe me it[ewido] found total of 90 threats while avg has detected 3 trojan.BackDoor.2BC, and ad-aware se found Alexa..i deleted all of thme but still quite unsure if it was really removed totally..i'll be starting a new thread where i'll post all of the results incl. logs and some screenshots of what happened..
