It's bloat! No doubt about it! I can't even begin to wonder why Nokia would make their software even slower than their mobile phones.
The software is in it self ok - really. It does most of the things it's supposed to as supposed to their new version, the Ovi Suite - OMG! More bloat and now stuff that used to be slow here with Nokia Suite simply doesn't work in Ovi. So even though this software is not that good it's better than upgrading right now.
I usually use the file browser with Bluetooth which is slow I know but it worked. The new version of Ovi doesn't even let you take a backup without using a cable. I guess we should be thankful they started to include the cables when you buy the phone - but still.
Ovi is even popping up on your screen when your phone is active. The sucks when you're plaiying a game and you get an sms - or if you're seeing a movie on your computer. But thankfully you can disable the "run on Windows startup" which of course totally makes the feature to autobackup your stuff go to waste.
The backup feature in Nokia Suite is also better because when taking backup with Ovi suite it appears to take all the included stuff on your phone with it aswell. I'm not sure if that's all the samle pictures, ringtones etc. AND the software you downloaded to your phone, e.g. GoogleMaps, Nokia Suite etc. but it simply never ends backing up - not on bluetooth anyway and all this when selecing "phone specific backup".
So all in all I'd say even though this software has gotten quite a bad review you should probably stick with it a while longer. The next generation is not looking better right now.

I know the version text on the AMD site says 9.5, but the file on the site actually points to a 9.6 version file, see:

After having used AVG for a very long time I feel kinda of sad to write this bad review about the product. Also because I'm not entirely sure that it's actually the program that's malfunctioning. But the latest months I've been having trouble with it. My Vista 32bit Ultimate Ed. keeps saying somethings wrong with it and there almost all the time some red exclaimation mark on the tray icon.
Sometimes trying to update the antivirus seems to solve the problem but no all the time. Eventually you get kind of used to errors like; it can't conenct to the virus database online, or that you need to restart for the next update to apply (without downloading any updates) and so forth.
I might be Vista or it might be Windows Defender really messing up the AVG product - who knows? I've decided to give Avast! a change again. It seems like the only real alternative to AVG anyway.

Excellent PDF reader! It's a small install, it's fast and it works.
The only reason for not giving this piece of software a 5/5 is that it seems the developers are beginning to add "features" which reminds me of all the reasons to find alternate versions like I once did with Adobe.
All sorts of features in the installer most of which I'd pass on and thankfully still can but also the updater features allows me to install all sorts of things I have no idea what's for. This latter features actually reminds me a lot of the same features Adobe has.
Is Foxit PDF Reader beginning to loose it's own reason for existing?

This is absolutely one of the greatest programs I'm running. I've already recommended this program to several of my friends and family members.
It does what it says and I've never experienced a broken system due to the use of this software. It's updated frequently and it's free.

Isn't 1.65 Trillion USD about the same as Dr. Evil demands in Austin Powers? ....

Oh I almost forgot. Think about the poor old Granny who connects to the internet to get mail from her son or daughter who doesn't protect her computer from spy/ad/malware and virus - she would probably get part of a bot-network soon enough and might even get to be the proud owner of her own little smtp server that sends out 10000 spam mails a minute.
She of course will have to pay the goverment all of her pension to cover the taxes.
And another thing.. Freedom of speech will now have to be redefined. Freedom of speech for those who can afford it - or something.

I think someone should consider adding taxes to the words that come out of politians.

I wonder what the point is to make another web editor - now Microsoft has:
Visual Studio Web Developer Express
Visual Studio 2005
and now this?
Yes, and of course Frontpage - which this program seems to take over, but really - where's the need?
