    Many a times you download some archive files with some 'nfo' file with it
    And when you click on this nfo file some system information window opens........
    STRICTLY OF NO USE


    You can try a freeware "DAMN NFO Veiwer" which is a light weight tool for veiwing the content of NFO files which are generally instructions on how to use the downloaded archive....
    This may of great use if you are not getting how to use your archive in a optimum way without mistakes


    You can find the tool at :-
    http://www.damn.to/software/nfoviewer.html
    or try
    http://softpedia.com/



    NOTE: NFO files are not only 'System Info File' but also can be used as 'Text File'

    //Tutorial Start
    Right-click >> Open with notepad.
    //Tutorial End

    Why do we need an extra installation?

    Hey! If there is a NFO at the root folder of the archive, Proggies like WinRAR display it as a split screen in the Archive Window. You dont even need to extract the nfo and view it in notepad.
