For ease of use, most windows use explorer/view model.  The explorer is on the left side of the window and displays a scrollable list of items (songs or albums) and the view occupies the right side showing the detail for the selected item in the explorer.  Your MusicDB also uses tables extensively with a convenient navigator at the bottom

MemTurbo A utility that sells for $19.95 and recaptures fragmented memory on Microsoft Windows machines.  Recapturing fragmented memory greatly reduces the dreaded Blue Screen of Death and constant reboots that we all experience so often.  This is the one that I use, although there are many others to choose from
pdfFactory A great print utility that sells for $49.95 and creates PDF output from any Microsoft Windows program.   A free version is available, but displays a message at the bottom of each page.  Very useful during report design to preview the entire output of a printed report before sending it to a printer.   Many trees can be saved!!!!
Registry Cleaner A free utility to clean the Miscrsodt Windows reistry.  Keeping your system registry clean enhances system performance
