I've tried every resource extractor out there and this one blows every other out of the water! It's super fast, very easy and I can get every detail. I use it to extract graphics and fonts I like.

I searched for a resource extractor and you were right on the top of the list. After using it for a few days, I like the built-in previewer that I can use to view the details of the icons I extract.

Not only icon extractor, I often use it as a music extractor to extract whatever I hear.

From the minute I loaded it on to my PC I was able to find all I wanted. No hours of reading help manuals, just a few of clicks can extract a piece of AVI video. I will most definitely recommend it to my friends and colleagues.
