Computer Software - although this is a hardware repair site I do some
software reviews of products I have bought and feel they deserve a mention
- good, bad, and ugly! :)
Computer Software evaluations are hard to
keep objective, I only review products I download (free or shareware) or buy for
my business or personal use.
It is pretty hard to stay un-biased when you pay a large sum of money for a
product and it doesn't live up to the advertising hype...
With the ever changing WWW there are always new and improved software and
services. You know that somewhere on the world wide web someone has an answer. I am going to attempt to help
you get some answers to those nagging questions.
Is this a good product?
How good is the software or service support?

When you purchase software you are taking a pig in a poke unless some one has
recommended the software product to you, you can search for the specific type of
software and read the publishers description of the product, but they (in all

What is the difference between basic and advanced?
As I build out my web site I will be reviewing different products, check back
here often or when you are considering a purchase for a review.
I will try to do
the latest and greatest but there are still some pretty good software packages that are
being produced that meet or exceed the latest and greatest (and
sometimes they are a lot cheaper!)

0-5 If I rate a program low it is
because it either didn't live up to the advertised functions or there was a
problem the software company either couldn't or wouldn't resolve.
If I rate a program in this range it has performed as advertised but there is
either a problem with the software or the support of the software.
10 - When I rate a program this high it means that the program has
exceeded expectations, that the support is the best, and there wasn't any
problems incurred with other programs. This is a tough one to give because so
many programs have 'bugs' with other running programs, the hardware it is
installed on, or the Operating System being used.
Microsoft has pushed Windows 7 / 8 on us and XP has been dropped there are some
programs that will not run in Windows 7 and 8, this list is of what I have
