It's a very good program, as long as it's installed in the appropriate PCs. If your PC has less than 4GB memory, then upgrade the RAM! A decent processor benefits as well. If this is put on a machine that lacks modern specs, then yeah, Dexpot isn't going to fly, and should be removed if you're a cheap bastard.
