5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic
I see on this site that most people did not like this product. Well, I did. At first it was a dissapointment, but after I did lots of voice testing and corrections, it was great. No hands are needed and it is relitivley fast. Great Buy.

1-0 out of 5 stars Crashes, crashes, crashes - DO NOT BUY
Installed ViaVoice 10 in Windows XP Pro...

And sometimes it opens and sometimes it doesn't. Mainly doesn't.

Then I find this...via Google..

Problem:

After launching Dragon or ViaVoice and clicking a link in one of the menus, the system locks up or freezes. Other symptoms include Dragon NaturallySpeaking's Select-and-Say or ViaVoice's dictation and commands fail in Microsoft Office XP applications, such as Word and Microsoft Outlook.

Cause:

Microsoft Office XP's "Alternate User Input" installs a background process called CTFMON.exe which can interfere with Dragon or ViaVoice. The following information was taken from the Microsoft website:

"...Ctfmon.exe monitors the active windows and provides text input service support for speech recognition, handwriting recognition, keyboard, translation, and other alternative user input technologies...."

And you can get NO, repeat, NO, help from ScanSoft.

DO NOT BUY!

2-0 out of 5 stars do not buy it if you have mcafee internet security soft ware
IBM viavoice usbpro has major conflict issues with mcafee internet security suite(6.)Ibm redirects you to scansoft that has a lousy support which is charged to your credit card after the first free query;their online knowledge database is sparse and the tech personell seem to be reading their answers from algorhythms with background knowledge barely above the average customer's; Mcafee has a more extensive online database but no free tech support phone calls; problems of conflict between the softwares were related to TCP/IP port (viavoice apparently works through an open port) and to speech engine conflicts;none could resolve these issues;such issues in my opinion can only be resolved by interdisciplinary programmers;short of this the choice is one software verses the other

2-0 out of 5 stars Terrible Support - Many Installation Problems
An earlier ViaVoice installation 3 years ago went fine and the product was pretty useful and accurate enough for my purposes.

ViaVoice version 10 however has been a nightmare. I still have not been able to install it on a Win2K-SP4 computer. I am a fairly advanced computer programmer/systems person with 20+ years of experience.

Support is virtually non-existent from Scansoft. My 30 days of free support from IBM where I purchased the product has not been honored. All support has to come from Scansoft.

Great features, if you can access them. I am seriously thinking of demanding my money back. Washington State has some very consumer friendly laws regarding "Fitness for Purpose", one more reason I am grateful to live in the Northwest.

4-0 out of 5 stars Incompatible with Word 2003
I have used ViaVoice Ver10 Pro USB for a little over a year with great results. On a fast computer system it keeps up with you almost no matter the speed of your speaking. It does occassionally crash. There seems to be a problem with it writing back to memory. IBM was unable to find the problem. It had done this on other computers as well. I've used it with MS Office XP Pro on my old computer. I upgraded to a new computer with MS Office Small Business Ed 2003 only to find that ViaVoice is not compatible with the components. I spent $9.95 in tech support only to be told that! They said that they plan to put that info on their website(Scansoft is now the tech support for this product). To date they haven't. Guess, they want to sell as many copies as possible before they make a patch. Anyway, if you're planning to use this with Office 2003 or higher it will not work and tech support will do nothing to help you except take your money.
Update: 5/5/2004: I contacted ScanSoft to find out if they are making a patch to make it compatable with Word 2003. Their standard answer is "We're working on it." If you go to their website you will find that they still haven't put in a disclaimer that it doesn't work with all Word editions. It just says that it does work with Word. I wonder how many refunds they are giving out for false advertising? I'm also surprised that the major PC magazines haven't picked up on this. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

The main tools in Norton SystemWorks help you avoid viruses, keep your PC running smoothly, and fix it when it doesn't. Norton SystemWorks 2003 Professional Edition gives you all the tools in the standard version, plus Norton Ghost for creating complete system backups or for transferring all your data to a new disk drive.

Norton SystemWorks 2003 comes with Norton AntiVirus 2003, excellent antivirus software which now scans files downloaded through instant messages, as well as from the Web and POP3 e-mail. It also blocks viruses that try to spread through your e-mail, keeps your virus definitions up-to-date, and looks for virus-like behavior.

Similarly, many of the tools in Norton Utilities are both easy to use and powerful. It checks the Registry and your hard drive for potential problems you wouldn't otherwise see, and helps you fix them. While some of the older tools have been superseded by options in Windows XP itself, the Speed Disk defragmenter gives you more information and more options than the built-in tools in any version of Windows.

The tools in CleanSweep are useful for clearing out clutter on your PC, whether from applications you've downloaded and installed, or for cleaning up after your browser. While there are other ways to do all of that, and the tools in this version have been reorganized rather than updated, you do get a very clear and simple interface to work with rather than having to hunt around. Plus there's a new tool called Connection Keep Alive to stop your dialup connection from disconnecting when you're not actively using it; handy if you leave your PC when a long download is running.

Norton Ghost rounds out the tools by letting you move a complete backup of your hard disk onto CD-ROM or another disk. You can also clone one disk onto another when you upgrade or move to a new PC. While the wizards are straightforward, Ghost has to reboot your PC and it creates large files. This is a powerful utility rather than a casual backup tool, so treat it with care. But like the other disaster-recovery tools in SystemWorks Professional, it's well worth having around before you run into problems with your PC. --Mary Branscombe, Amazon.co.uk ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings
I have mixed feelings about Norton SystemWorks 2003. On one hand, I'm a longtime user of the SystemWorks family of products, and I feel no Windows computer is complete without vital Norton tools like SpeedDisk and WinDoctor. On the other hand, I've been terribly disappointed with this release of NSW. Here's why:

Primarily, NSW 2003 doesn't include any obvious updates to existing software. I upgraded from NSW 2001, and I really don't see any changes in the functionality of any existing tools. The color scheme and interface has been revised to match Windows XP's friendly pastels and rounded curves, but I really don't see any difference in the way the components actually work. So why upgrade?

Second, NSW 2003 does not play nice with older versions of Windows. In particular, it loads an executable into memory, whether you want to use any "active" tools (such as AntiVirus or Registry Tracker) or not. Under Windows 2000 and XP, this application runs as a service and doesn't cause any problems; but on my Windows 98SE platform, it causes noticeably slower startups and shutdowns, and occasionally causes the system to hang when shutting down. I realize that Windows 98 is now a bit long in the tooth, but Symantec really should have put more effort into making NSW 2003 compatible with Win98 if it is to be advertised as such on the box.

In summary: On one hand, Norton SystemWorks is a solid heir to a useful dynasty of tools for Windows. On the other hand, there is little if any advantage over recent editions of the software, and backwards compatibility is deficient. I suggest that if you have Win2k or XP and do not yet have Norton SystemWorks, pick it up. If you are running an older version of Windows or already have SystemWorks 2001 or later, pass this one by.

1-0 out of 5 stars NORTON 2004, A NIGHTMARE FOR OUTLOOK EXPRESS
I am an old Norton Systems Works customer, and I have been relatively satisfied with their virus protection, especially the ability to download and upgrade through the Internet. However, the lastest edition of NORTON, ie, Norton 2004 which I bought for 100 dollars, (I live in Ibadan, Nigeria) is not good for the international market. When I tried to install NORTON 2004 on my computer, I found out that it has to be activated on the INTERNET. Well, this may not be good for many African users, but I am connected to a server at home. So I tried to activate the system only to find out my server is not compatible with NORTON 2004. This is specified on page 21 of the manual that it is not compatitble with AOL, and SSL Secure Socket email systems. Well, not only would it not install, it would not uninstall--my machine was totally mucked up for almost two months, and I have had to revert to emailing from a cyber cafe. I think anyone who is selling a product, should make is perfectly clear on the packaging the systems with which the product is compatible. I have finally been able to reformat my hard disk and remove the Norton 2004, and reinstall my email server information, but what do I do with NORTON 2004, I hope the engineeers from NORTON read this and write to me and solve my problem. As presently, I have no protection against email viruses.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't bother
It is difficult to make a utility program that works with various operating systems, because in many cases it has to bypass the operating system to work.

That said, Symantec should be able to design with this in mind. But it looks like they haven't. I had an installation of Windows 2000 with Norton 2002 working fine. I made the mistake of upgrading to XP - a mistake because it seems that Norton can't cope with this.

I have a file of nearly 5,000 photos which worked fine under Windows 2000. Under XP each time you opened a file the computer came to a halt for several seconds. This was because Norton Anti-virus was scanning the database.

Eventually I decided to make a clean installation (not an upgrade) of Windows XP. I figured that Norton 2002 would have problems so I ordered Norton 2003. I installed XP and some applications and the system ran fine. Then I made the mistake of installing Norton 2003.

I put in the CD and the program started installing Norton AntiVirus. Suddenly for no reason the computer crashed and restarted. When it moved into Windows I had a message saying that some program had interfered with the installation. It was obvious that things were bad so I went to the programs uninstall, and managed to get rid of most of what was there.

This didn't stop the warning notice appearing every time I started XP. I tried removing all the Norton folders in the program files and got rid of every file but one - this was "in use by Norton Anti-virus." Even after I renamed the folder the warning message still appeared.

The warning message had a link to the Norton web site, where the problem was acknowledged and there were instructions on how to get rid of it. However, one step was to go into the registry and manually remove two lines, with all the possibility of major damage if this wasn't done correctly.

That's when I really lost it with Norton. I've been working with programs that use the registry since around May 1995 (the Windows 95 preview edition) and I have NEVER had to alter the registry by hand. They know their program causes a problem yet they cannot write a simple program to make sure the mistake is cleared up without risk.

Had I cleaned up the registry manually I would then (according to Norton) be in a position to reinstall their software. Given the trouble I had with it I'd rather not go through all that gain, so I'll wait for XP Service Pack 2 for Anti-virus. The only other feature I use regularly is speed disk, but PC Magazine says that it's much slower than the XP disk defragmenter.

As someone else here says, such a pity a program you used to recomend automatically has sunk so low.

2-0 out of 5 stars The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly .
The Good: Norton Systemworks 2003 Pro is a good value and works well on the faster Windows XP based computers as a comprehensive antivirus and utilities software bundle.

The Bad: It seems to install alright on Windows 98 or 98SE based computers but after running all of the Live-Updates I have seen it corrupt, crash, and BSoD (blue screen) computers that were previously working flawlessly. It is also not very fun rebooting into safe mode to try to uninstall the mess it creates. If you are running a computer slower than 1.5 Ghz in speed you should forget about using it. This program will turn your once speedy Pentium computer into a 486 in no time.

The Ugly: If you get it running ok on your computer you can expect one year of antivirus and live updates before either having to register and subscribe for another year of updates or you will have to completely uninstall Norton Systemworks 2003 and install something else. If you decide to go with Systemworks 2004 good luck. Symantec's Norton 2004 products are some of the buggiest, slowest, most privacy invasive, and problem ridden pieces of software ever distributed by a major software security company. You can also expect serious installation problems, poor customer support, required product activation (can only be installed once or twice on the exact same computer), and major performance degradation to even the latest and fastest computers.

The Solution: You can run many of the Systemworks 2003 utilities right from the CD-ROM. If you need to install and use a particular program such as Norton Ghost 2003 then only install that one program and not the entire suite of Systemworks programs. Before you install any new antivirus software make sure you completely uninstall the Norton Systemworks and Antivirus software first or you will see the new software like the new McAfee have major problems dealing with the leftovers files from Norton. For antivirus software go with McAfee Antivirus 2004 (if you buy the McAfee 2004 Internet Security Suite with antivirus do not install the Privacy Service program since it causes major problems). With McAfee 2004 there is no product activation required and it seems to run much more efficiently on newer and older computers than Norton antivirus 2003 or 2004. Some other reportedly good antivirus programs include PC-Cillin 2004, Kaspersky Antivirus 4.5 or 5.0, Panda Platinum Antivirus, and the completely free (to download and update) AVG Antivirus. In this era of unknown Windows security flaws and new viruses being found every day you should also consider using a good software firewall solution such as Zone Alarm and Zone Alarm Pro or XP users should enable the Windows XP internet connection firewall.

2-0 out of 5 stars Norton GoBack = Good / Rest of Package = Trouble
I installed this software suite on my home PC about two weeks ago. The problems started almost immediately. I should have read some of these reviews more closely before purchasing.

#1: Get ready for your system to slow WAY down, especially when you boot up. There were numerous complaints about this from purchasers of Norton AntiVirus, so I'm assuming this is the particular piece of the package that causes the problems.

#2: I upgraded to DSL about a week after installing SystemWorks, and the trouble really hit the fan then. DSL safety also required that I install a firewall, and Norton seems to have no idea how to handle this very well.

I'm not a techie, and my advice would be to find something else unless you've got some serious PC skills. The only thing that is useful is the GoBack software, which lets you restore your PC after serious problems develop...Ironically, I mainly use it to restore my PC after it gets screwed up by another Norton application. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Fully Realized
With just a little assistance from the help file and User Guide I was able to identify my phone (Motorola t720,) import my contacts from Outlook 2002 and transfer to my phone. Although seemingly successful, there were limitations. The transfer wiped out the phonebook on my SIM card but it didn't place any contacts there. The help file gives loose instructions to direct a contact from the DataPilot's phonebook manager on the PC to the SIM phonebook. I was unable to get this feature to work; the DataPilot's phonebook manager inevitably converted my changes and placed those contacts in the phone memory. The phonebook in the phone can store multiple numbers for a contact but the software's phonebook manager does not transfer more than one phone number per contact; though it will import up to 6 numbers from Outlook?

The calendar transfer was more successful. I was pleased with that function.

I'll investigate Motorola's pricier option... If they provide the functionality I'm looking for, I'll go for it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Huge time saver
This product is owesome. Punching all the numbers by hand would have taken me hours, but instead it was a matter of seconds. Internet dial up is very convenient when I am on a business trip or out for the weekend.
Ring tone editor is not the neatest thing, but I guess is only Motorola that forces you to manually punch the ring tones. At least, the software converts the file for manual entry. That's a plus.

1-0 out of 5 stars Really bad software
I bought this product and the truth was dissapointing, I have a Motorola V60i which I could synchronize without problem, except because at the time of seeing I telephone of the directory one because they appear rare things. Now as far as the part of RINGTONES, because in my I telephone I must enter them of manually, which is too boring, but nonsingle that, if not that when reproducing them in my cellular one is listened to any thing. The truth is a bad item, I do not recommend for anything this software.
Be carefull.

1-0 out of 5 stars Neat idea - poorly executed
I purchased this product instead of the Motorola datacable because of the many neat features promised. The software provides a way to save your phone directory to the PC, edit ring tones, among other features.

However, the product is so buggy and poorly realized that it is unfortunately as waste of time and money. I tried installing the product on 2 machines, one with Windows 2k and one with Windows XP, and neither was able to communicate with the phone. In addition I had to download additional drivers and software just to get the program to install.

The instructions to install the drivers are lacking in detail, and fail to deal with the common error messages you may recieve. Lastly, the USB driver is not really USB at all, but emulates a serial port and uses one of the COM port resources.

The program has other quirks, like the inability to save the phone configuration unless the program can communicate with the phone, and some menu items that simply do not work. For example, pressing the "home" menu brought up a message that was simply "()"

Tech support is about on par with most companies these days - which means not very good. Expect to get lots of emails that simply tell you to reinstall the drivers.

All in all, this is a poorly executed product. Save your money and frustration and look elsewhere.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the great programs!
Remember XTree? It could do just about everything. Conversions Plus, though a different kind of program, is also one of the great programs ever written.
Someone send you a graphic that's garbled? Or a WordPerfect file? Conversions Plus will bring them to light, easily, and (usually) perfectly.
It's one of those programs that will have you saying "how could I have worked without this?"

In a nutshell this is a program that works exactly like it says. I had several hundred files created with Clarisworks 2.0 word processing software.

5-0 out of 5 stars Read INSTRUCTIONS for Successful Installation!
I had formerly had Norton 2003 on my HP Pavillion Pentium 4 2.53GHz with 512MB. That worked fine. I wrote another review stating how I needed to do something after an accidental McAfee Virus Scan corrupted my registry of my Norton 2003, so without protection I had to do something quick for my computers safety and my own peace of mind.

My computer had been so far gone, due to many deletions I had made, and not learning to leave things alone. I had just installed MSN Premium for my DSL and nothing was working correctly at all. I had no choice after the system was running haywire and doing nothing right, but to do a complete destructive recovery on my HP. For anyone who has ever had to start from scratch, well it was not easy. Luckily the great feature of HP is your D recovery drive. You can turn back time and make the computer once again, brand new.

After taking on the daunting task of re-installing every patch from microsoft update, all my former internet software, printers, and well, EVERYTHING, all over again, it was time for Norton to be re-installed too.

I had bought the 2004 version after the initial destruction of my Norton 2003 from that useless free McAfee Virus Scan that does NOTHING, but that installation of the 2004 was lost when I did the recovery. I was able to redownload from the site, where I purchased it, as they let you do that two times more in 60 days of purchase, which is great in my opinion. You just need the info they send in the email when you purchase. I saved a copy to the desktop too so it is always there, and I got the backup disc too. I was able to install this and run it flawlessly ever since with no problems at all.

I think alot of you that are having a problem with your Norton 2004 software is that you are not reading the installation document at the Symantec Site. This is crucial apparently to a successful installation. Have all of you first done the complete Defragmentation to your hard drive C as instructed? Have you cleaned out the temporary files completely? Have you removed ALL former Norton software and clean booted the computer as instructed? I did ALL of that and whatever else the instructions said to do, and my software works just great! My computer NEVER runs slower due to Norton 2004 software. Even when I am doing a complete scan and the Norton is running in another window, I can surf super fast, play games or whatever, with no glitches, no freezes, no PROBLEMS at all. I had some pictures sent to me, and Norton even detected a malicious script and blocked it after asking me, very efficiently, and logged it. It finds any spyware very quickly, live update works great too. My email is not supported by this program, clearly stated by Norton, but it DOES find anything in the email before it gets to my drives anyway, so in that case, works just fine. I cannot understand all the problems and complaints here, and hope that my words can help some others. I was afraid to buy this because I read my fellow reviewers thoughts and have respect for other opinions always, but this time I must disagree.

On the subject of customer service, it is great. Online support wrote me at least 10 times in reference to every single question I asked. The first reponse took a few days, but the next several emails came fast. They included links to the site with all appropriate information I needed, which was informative and helpful to me. One email had the instructions to install Norton 2004.

Not only was the tech support helpful, they gave me a FULL YEAR extension, ON THE HOUSE for all my troubles and for re-purchasing an upgrade with Norton as I lost some of my old subscription time on my 2003 which was good until 9/2004. They made the time up to me, and then some.

Bottom line is, this is excellent software with NO defects, NO freezes, NO slowing the machine down in the least, NO crashes, NO re-activations, NO rebooting, NO PROBLEMS!

If you are having this trouble, I would suggest you go read the document at the site, how to install Norton 2004 and clean boot the computer. If you unistall and reinstall once more the right way, you may just get a far more positve experience out of Norton Antivirus 2004. Good luck cyberfriends!

1-0 out of 5 stars What a ripoff!
The problems began when the installation froze, stretching installation time to a whopping five hours! Once the software was finally installed, it encountered an "internal error" which could be "addressed" at the Symantec website. Unfortunatly, however, the technical support link is non-existent. Literally, "www.symantec.com/techsupp" DOES NOT EXIST!!! This also renders live updates impossible. Of course, this issue could probably be resolved on the phone during the work week for the low price of 30 bucks. Instead, I'll just trash this piece of crap and spend 40 bucks on PC-Cillin 2004. Buyer beware!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting provider of non-costly software
That was an OEM and I didn't expect more than a CD-ROM. Nisofts provided me with a Norton Antivirus 2004, which was installed flawlessly. They reacted fast to Amazon order and they shipped the software fast. They deserve five stars.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best antivirus I have tried
I have tried other antiviruses, and I have found this one to be the best, not giving me false detections of infection of vital files, and easy to use.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't install this product unless you want endless trouble
Purchased this product and received and installed it on July 10, 2004. Took 6 hours to install, have it not work, uninstall and then diagnose problems etc. Endless little hassles and it makes me think this product was not yet ready for release, but the company wanted to start people out on it so they could cash in. I previously had Norton Internet Security 2003 and wanted to upgrade to 2004 Professional as it advertised the spyware and keystroke logging interception. Well the 2003 version worked ok, but now it is gone with the wind, replaced by this new one. If I had known how much trouble it would be, I would have kept what worked and not tried this new one. I have Windows XP and you must uninstall the XP hotfix patches, install the Antivirus, then reinstall the patches. What a headache! Well I think I have it working now but my system is running very slow, and there may be repercussions. Also, the instructions on the Symantec website for problem resolution will have you going in circles! Buyer beware. Maybe they will improve this product at a later date. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Thanks for the reviews
Just a quick thank-you to the others who have written. I was set to buy the upgrade, assuming that 'Pro X' meant OS X compatible. Thanks for saving me $130, and turning me on to Readiris - actual OS X software.

1-0 out of 5 stars It's not fully MAC OS X compatable
This version is not 100% Mac OS X compatable. You have to switch to "Classic" mode to scan a document directly into OmniPage Pro X. No where on the box or in the directions does it tell you this. I found out after using my ONE free technical support call. The Mac OS 8/9 version works the way its supposed to.

I wasted my money.

1-0 out of 5 stars Scansoft ignores the Mac Platform.
I bought this software when it first came out 2 years ago to use with OS X. Since buying it Scansoft has not released one update or bug fix for the program. It will not work with any Photoshop plugins in OS X. I have tried to get it to work with my Canon Lide 30 scanner with no success whatsoever.

You would think when you buy an expensive software program you would at least get free email support. No way with Scansoft! Their philosophy is to milk their customers for as much as they can get, charging $20 for each support question by email.

If you need to buy an OCR program for your Mac I would highly recommend buying Readiris instead. Although far from a perfect program, it puts OmniPage to shame. Unlike Scansoft they do provide free email support. Readiris is also very good at preserving the format of a document when translated into Word Processing and Text Editing programs. This is something that OmniPage fails miserably at.

2-0 out of 5 stars Inferior to prior versions
I've used Omnipage for years, going through almost all the versions since the first. When an upgrade appeared it consistently offered incremental improvements and I rarely had to even glance at the user's manual.

Not so with this version. In some key respects it is not apparent how it works even after consulting the manual. There are many more errors in text and formatting. Saves don't even go smoothly. I would guess that something that formerly took me 45 minutes now takes me several hours, including corrections. And I still don't know why the text selection doesn't flow from one page to the next in a multi-page document, as it used to. This product should have been put in the "leave well enough alone category." ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars IT does the job, barely.
Ideally, you wouldn't have to think about backing up phone numbers stored in your cell phone. Your mobile phone company would take care of it for you, and store your backups automaticaly on their servers. But life isn't so ideal. You have the choice of not bothering to backup the numbers or using DataPilot. There are no other aleternatives that I know of.

I want to use DataPilot for one thing only -- to store a backup of numbers stored in my phone. Someday, I may have to restore that backup. That's it. The program ought to have a few buttons, almost no options, and be trivial to use. Instead, it has many dozen menus and options. I think I have saved my phone numbers, but I am not really sure.

Given there is no alternative, it is worth the aggravation to get this to work. But the people who designed this ought to be ashamed of themselves. Rather than making it really really easy to archive a list of phone nubmers,they have produced a program that I suppose does other things too, but is hard to use.

ALso beware of the packaging. It takes serious effort and tools to open up the package. It is way harder to open than most electronic or software products. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Completely set up My New PC in 2 Hours
My new PC was literally sitting in the corner of my home office for almost two months. I was aggravated because I didn't have a clue how I was going to get all my stuff over from my old one. My old one didn't even have a CD-R drive, and I didn't have an extrenal hard drive.

I bought Transfer Your PC, and it worked like a charm. No hassle whatsoever. You install the software on the two PCs and hook up the parallel cable and, presto!, you can see your old PC from your new PC. You just click a button and it sucks all of the data onto the new PC through the cable. I was pretty amazed at how easy it was.

My email, contacts, calendar, documents, MP3s, photos, files ... everything came over.

Transfer Your PC also includes a program to privacy protect your old computer before you sell it and another program to back up data on your new PC. I haven't used those yet but plan to.

Great software. Glad to be using my new PC and to be taking advantage of all the stuff I needed. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Ok
After trying the free trialware version I bought a copy of this program on Ebay for about $10, for that price it has done its job. As with other reviewers, there just isnt a central file or somewhere that you can see your passwords on, like a spreadsheet. One change I would make in this program is that it assumes that you only have 1 account on every webpage. yes the program allows for several user profiles however, if for example, you have 2 yahoo email accounts, it will only allow 1 password per page per profile. otherwise you would have to manually type in the second account each time which defeats the purpose of the program.

1-0 out of 5 stars Password Manager
This is the sorriest software package I have ever purchased. I was offline when I laoded it and when I went to log in I found it had trashed my modem drivers. I cleaned up the mess with GoBack, went on line and reloaded. I did the reboot and guess what-NO MODEM DRIVERS. When I went to Symantec they did not even have NPM listed as a product so it was impossible to get installation help

1-0 out of 5 stars Just terrible
I would expect products by Symantec to be of higher quality. This one is just terrible. There is no way to add new passwords manually, and it doesn't detect alot of login sites.

1-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't do the job
There are no provisions to backup your passwords, nor provisions to randomly generate passwords. How can I move my passwords from a desktop to a laptop? This software does not allow you to control where the data is saved. This software assums that you have some other master list of passwords in case this data is lost. I can't believe Norton put their name on this product.

1-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Awful!
This product just doesn't work. It is unfortunate that I have to give this piece of garbage even 1 star. If I could, it would get a -10.

I agree with the other reviewer that browserplus (www.browserplus.com) has a much better (and less expensive) product that actually works and does a lot more. If you need to manage your passwords, bypass this product and go right to the browserplus website. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Remotely accessing computers--whether from the next desk over or in aremote office thousands of miles away--is an essential part of business life. Keeping things running smoothly and safely, Symantec's pcAnywhere 10.5 allowsusers to work where they like without worrying about slow file transfers ormalicious hackers. The package is designed for two sets of users: help deskstaffers who want to watch what their clients are doing or even take overoperations remotely, and mobile professionals who need to access files or runprograms while far from their desks.

Installing and setting up the software can be tricky for novices, so most usersshould have competent IT staff on hand to take care of glitches. Once installed,it's easy to remotely control machines or quickly drag and drop files via cableor modem using the simple, intuitive interface. Essentially, the remote machineopens a window into the host computer to watch or take over its functioning.While this may take a bit of adjustment at first, it quickly becomes secondnature.

The security features for pcAnywhere are strong, varied, and impressive,including basic authentication, roaming network search for unauthorizedconnections, and comprehensive logging. IT professionals will appreciate therebootless install feature, which lets them put the software on employees'computers transparently. Remote access should be safe and painless, andpcAnywhere 10.5 is both. --Rob Lightner ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Problems with XP
After many days of trying I have finally had to give up the attempt to get this product working with our single machine running XP pro.

There have been two main issues:

Firstly there seems to be issues with the shipped product that requires a download from symantec to fix (blank screen after reboot).

Secondly (and terminally) when a disk check is carried out post install, the machine checks the disk and then hangs. Aborting the check also causes a hang. If you do get a successfull reboot by using Last Known Good then the disk increasingly incorrectly reports file & folder sizes.

No viruses seem to be present (boot sector or otherwise).

Installs via the recommedend Clean Boot method were tried.

Obviously this may be peculiar to the system we were using (we could not find any reference to this type of problem on the Symantec site or elsewhere):

Toshiba Satellite 1800, XP Pro (Retail Upgrade, clean install), NTFS volume, PCanywhere 10.5 from CD.

Pcanywhere seems to work fine in other cofigurations, on other machines that we have tried - win98, win 2k on Compaqs & Panasonics.

I have to agree with other reviews I have read that Symantec products are shipping less and less robust (we also have had problems with NIS 2002).

1-0 out of 5 stars Never changes
You would think that a product would improve with time -- but no, not pcAnywhere! It is, always has been, and probably always will be deeply flawed. I installed this product on two Windows 2003 Servers. On one of them, the host service kept failing whenever I tried to initiate a file transfer. On the other server, file transfers worked fine but the visual display was a distortion of black and white lines. It's amazing -- every single version I work with has some problem that keeps me from being able to move it into production. And version 10.5 is no exception. Save your money!

5-0 out of 5 stars Saved my company a lot of $$$$
Being a Systems Engineer for our network users, I love this product. It has made my life so much easier. Instead of walking the end users through some steps over the phone, I just log in and take care of the issue. Here's where the money savings comes in... I no longer have to send a computer in for software issues because someone couldn't follow the instructions and my company doesn't have to pay to fly me to the different sites. The only issue I have ever had is with 10.5 and XP. It always installs fine, but it leaves an item in the tool bar that you can't close (more annoying than anything else). I imagine vers. 11 will fix this. Over all I give this product a BIG thumbs up!

1-0 out of 5 stars Install PCAnywhere 10.5 on Windows NT at your own risk.
I recently got a new home computer with Windows XP on it. I had currently been using Windows 98 and had PCAnywhere 8.0 running on it as well as on my PC at work running with Windows NT 4.0. It ran perfectly for years, however the only version of PCAnywhere compatible with XP is 10.5.. So, I got this program and decided to load it at work as the documentation said it ran with NT. BIG MISTAKE!!!! Program installed fine, but when I went to reboot my machine at the end of the night it Blue Screened on the reboot. Then it continually rebooted and blue screened. Couldn't bypass it. Tried starting the machine in VGA mode. No good either. Blue screen. Went to Symantec site and there is a known bug with NT and 10.5 that can cause a Blue screen due to some video driver crud. Bottom line, their fix involved installing parallel version of NT on machine and doing all sorts of manual stuff with the Registry. Send my Machine off to company LAN department. Guess what. MACHINE IS TRASHED. Unrecoverable. The have to reimage the entire box. Everything on my machine is gone. Nice of Symantec to (NOT) warn me before I installed about potential problems with NT 4.0. If they had I would have kept my 8.0 on my work PC. Bottom line, I have been without a machine for a day, all my work is lost and I have nothing by disdain for this software. DO NOT install 10.5 on an NT machine if you value your PC. You have been warned.

2-0 out of 5 stars Slow, slower, slowest!
I've used PC Anywhere in all its iterations. As a professional software analyst, I used to require that all my clients purchase a copy.

But not anymore. My biggest beef is that even when both the host and remote connections are high speed Internet, this product responds too slowly. When using this product, I can click with my mouse, go to the bathroom, get a second cup of coffee and pet my dog before the command will take effect.

I much prefer using WebX or VPN as a tool of choice for remote support.

On the plus side, remote support after hours, while slow, is relatively painless. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Data Lifesaver
With more than 1,000 viruses and worms being unleashed over the internet every day, anyone who has important documents, data or content on their PC needs to carry out some type of regular backup and disaster recovery program. Having used more than six different programs over the past five years we have found that Backup NOW! is one of the easiest to use and most versatile products we have found for our small business network and notebook computers. It really is two backup/recovery products in one package. Now we duplicate and backup our complete server and user systems every three months and do weekly and daily incremental backup. We've only had one near disaster with a worm infestation on one of our systems and were able to quickly recover all of the data. But the software really shows its value when people accidentally delete (rather than save) files they are working on. They don't have to start from scratch because BackupNOW! lets them bring back the specific file to the state it was the evening before. If your office is like ours and running on adreneline that feature alone is worth 3x the cost of the product. We like the fact that BackupNOW! saves to so many different types of media. On the office network we use DVD-RW because we can overwrite a thousand times and can randomly access the disc for recovery. On our notebooks we save to CD-R because the media works anywhere and costs almost nothing. But best of all the software simply works the way we like to work. That's one less thing we have to worry about in our business ! ... Read more
