Coolcolors is spot on with his comments...free is often without support, and some of the pay-for stuff is also either crap or badly supported. So, what we are saying here is, do some research when checking out what software you choose to use. That really goes for any application you are looking at. Some of these programs may even try to (sneakily) install search tools etc which can be hard to get rid of (itÂ´s how they make their money)...Ask is an example. Other are simply badly written and are either resource hogs, like Nero, or continually crash your system.
All that aside, jdarcy99, have you come up with a suitable solution, one that works for you?
