    Default Any software better than Quicken...please?

    So, I recently tried to install Quicken, which I have been using for years, onto a removable hard drive, so I could take it with me. Thereupon, I found out they installed some "files(rootkit is such a dirty word)" on my computer's hard drive without my knowledge, and the computer will not run without it. I then talked to Quicken technical support, and they basically said, in a nice way, "Screw you, you can't install the software you bought onto a removable hard drive, and you can't make a custom .exe to run the files(we are telling you not to) if you can find them. Uninstall, and reinstall this software onto a computer's hard drive."

    I then found out about Intuit's "sunset clause," meaning that my 2005 version will lose its ability be installed again(say, for example, if I have to reformat the computer) or have any technical support, this year. I will instead have to buy Quicken again. I believe the word for this is "crippleware," right?

    That being said, I now hate Quicken with a passion. All my previous love has turned to hate. Do y'all know of any better accounting software(for bills and keeping the check book in order) software, that is better than this POS?

    only one's I know are MS Money, GnuCash (http://www.gnucash.org/ free), and maybe JGnash.

    A lot of that then goes up to enterprise solutions.

    A note on GnuCash: There is no real windows binary, and you'd have to compile it yourself. But if you want a free program, that's the one. It should even import your quicken files.

    Personaly, I'd stick with quick'n and just find a way to break their fucking software. Normaly I'm against such, but when a company fucks you like that, to hell with them. Just don't tell us how you did it.
