The only "molecular_biology_related_software" that I know that run
under MS-Windows are MACAW (available from your favorite FTP site) and
Entrez (only available as a beta version at this time fom NCBI).

MACAW is a multiple sequence editor/alignment tool, and Entrez is a 
relational medline/genbank retrieval tool (which also require a CD-ROM
drive).  Both of these products are from NCBI actually, and I found
that MACAW lacks a good user manual.  If there is one out there,
_please_ let me know.  My users (and myself ;-) need all the manuals
we can get!

best of luck,
