Just to add my ha'penny worth..... Run your gedcom through the free Ged2Web software. It will create a folder with a number of files that you can interrogate. Delete the folder before you perhaps have a new gedcom to look at.
Personally I use My Heritage software in my laptop, but that's a faff to set up for what you want to do....

And I'm definitely with Erato and Suey on the joys of PAF5 !! it has everything I need, including an excellent search facility.

I have a PAF. My mate's dad recommended it to me in 2004 and I love my PAF. He is also into genealogy and his advice was to check, check and check again.
