I must be a mo-mo. I went ahead and got the pro version for two reasons i wanted to be able to burn in an svcd format and because of the glowing reviews. Well I don't understand how this software works. Where do the encoded avi files go? Where do you set the directory you want files to go to go (temp folder in windows or the location where the original files goes)? I find it really lacking in control. The transcoding goes and goes and goes without letting you know how much time is left. The manual really 'bites'.. excuse my language. I was looking for an alternative to Nero because Nero has gotten so top heaven with extra crap I don't need and the older version are not compatible with Vista. I will continue to work with it until I just get totally fed up. I am going to the guides pages here to see if I can get my answers answered of which the manual is supposed to. Thx.

I have used nero 8 which i thought it said it was compatible with Vista and low and behold, the imagedrive option is incompatible and locked up my windows beyond deactivation and i couldn't uninstall it which i don't understand why. The interface is too verbose. I like to choose my options. Also I found that adding the programs I like the most in Nero was very hard to do, not like in Nero 6 where you click, point and add. I wanted to use the "classic view" like windows has. i guess that didn't exist. Creating an audio CD was more trouble in 8 than in version 6. 2 clicks and I am in. Burning Rom - No workie with Vista. A screen popped up and said I couldn't use it. What is that crap at the bottom of the screen on nero 8? Chat, news and other crap. Ew! I am going back to Nero 6. It gave me no problems. Only issue is that I can't use it with Vista. So I am flattening my machine and I am going back to XP and my life will be happy with Nero 6.
I have tried filezilla and it was very unsuccessful when i tried to download a large file. it would time out and never resume like it is supposed to. I could NEVER get anything uploaded or downloaded for that matter. There is another software i found that fits the bill.. if I can find it here i will comment on it.
The last version of avant browser it loaded a bunch of adware and spyware on my computer that has taken me forever to get rid of and I rolled back to the last version that I loved. No spyware, no adware, no holes or security issues. I don't know what happened. If I can remember the version where I experienced this problem I will update. But i sent in a complaint to the developer and never received anything back. Anyhoo..
I cannot believe they teamed with Microsoft Vampires! That means the product that I loved so much is gonna go to sh*t!! This is exactly why i moved to firefox/mozilla because they had no affiliation with MS unless i missed an article.
I love firefox at this point other than losing the ability to see my downloads. Don't know what went wrong. other than that.. it rocks!
