DNA strider is by far the best and fastest. it doesn't do a lot of the things
the expensive stuff does, but what it does it does extremly well.  there is a
review of major mol bio software in TIBS from sometime last year
 (haven't got the ref, sorry you'll have to do the leg work)
unfortunately, i haven't a clue as to where to get it. i believe it is freeware
or at least shareware (i'd appreciate a correction or confirmation on this).
 there is some interesting software available from the EMBO server also.
