Steve Bingham: DO NOT USE! Junk software and a real hindrance to serious photographers.

1- It will change your opening of file types to MS as opposed your default folder. Then you need to change every FOLDER to your old defaults. In short, it changes tiffs, jpgs, and raw to open in Live Gallery instead of PS CS5, LR3, PS9, etc, etc.

2- It fails to cover even moderately recent camera releases, such as the Nikon D7000.

3- To UNinstall it, simply reinstall and choose UNINSTALL as the option. What I don't know is whether the thousands of cached images will also be uninstalled. I doubt it but I am no computer guru.

It didn't change mine either. These codecs work seamlessly in my Windows 7 x64. Way to go microsoft!!
