Some of the best written and most useful Windows software you can find anywhere.

Radsoft software differs from mainstream software in many ways, and there are tangible reasons for this. Radsoft software is known for being more stable, more bug-free, and without threat of vulnerability like no other products.
Through the years, a total of three bugs have been found in the Extreme Power Tools collection: Robin Keir found that the fonts in the About boxes rendered text incorrectly on certain platforms; the original shipment of E3 Security Kit was recalled the day of its release because of a bug discovered by the development team; and the little box beside the removable drive icon in X-file was behaving improperly. That's it. No other bugs, no crashes, no vulnerabilities.
There are reasons for this engineering excellence.
It's been around awhile. The Extreme Power Tools originated in its Windows incarnation back in the end of the 1980s. By the time it was discovered on the Internet, most programs had been around eight years or more.
We care about what we do. We don't have the same pressure on us that programmers in major software houses have. We don't have to leave projects before we feel we're finished with them, only to move onto new projects that aren't treated any better. We don't have to give time to market a higher priority than quality. Instead, we come back to our code time and again, review it, look through it, try to find ways to make it better. These are our personal projects, and we take real pride in them. When most of the programs have been worked over for so long, it's not surprising they're that good.
We write the programs for ourselves. We offer them on the Internet so others can benefit, but we don't target a market - we write them because we need them for our own projects. Once they've attained the requisite modicum of quality, they're passed onto our Extreme Power Tools subscribers.
We care what happens to you. Surfing the web with a PC is not an easy task. The PC - running Windows - is a powerful machine, and realistically takes a real technical genius to master. Still, this is precisely what most people have today. Even if you don't use our products, we hope that the content of this website can be of assistance.
Enjoy your stay.
