I too took a look at DNAssist after reading this thread, and uninstalled it. 

There are already too many file formats, so programs that insist in working 
with their own format are not for me... I prefer Bioedit, by T. Hall, it does 
all that DNAstrider does and much more. Especially nice is that it provides an 
interface to programs running in DOS windows like the Phylip programs, 
Clustalw or Molphy.  And for a lot of simple things I stick with Esee, a DOS 
program by E. Cabot, powerful and simple.
