It is my first time using Kaspersky and I can tell that it runs very smooth and has a lot of integrated functions that increase it value. (virtual keyboard, parental control, safe money, apps watch, etc) overall it is very customizable and has a lot of configuration options, which a really like from a security software. I wish the firewall interface was more easy and friendly as McAfee's but it is not bad at all, I just miss the prompt pop-up mode that McAfee has where before each program connects to the internet you can allow it or not, here in kaspersky it came all allowed by default if it is a trusted program according to their data base. The best of all is the price, 3 PC licenses for 1 year for the price is a total hit!
"High Five," drops young Trenton, NJ, bounty hunter, Stephanie Plum, into her usual refreshing frenzy of mayhem, disaster, sleuthing and old-neighborhood New Jersey.
This time the disappearance of cheap, crotchety old Uncle Fred nags at Stephanie's attention while her desperate need for money drives her to ask enigmatic, taciturn, mysterious and powerful mentor-colleague Ranger for work. Such as a job of "interior renovation," which involves sweeping drug dealers from their squat at dawn.
Between working for Ranger, taking Grandma Mazur to funeral viewings, being bested one too many times by her only fugitive (a "little person" computer geek), and struggling with her feelings for vice cop and sometime lover, Joe Morelli, Stephanie hunts for Fred. The only clue is a roll of pictures found in his desk - of human body parts in a garbage bag.
Evanovich keeps the antics and action jumping without overdoing her dry humor or losing sight of her crisp, mysterious plot.
Most of her characters will be familiar from earlier books ("One For the Money," Two For the Dough," "Three to Get Deadly," "Four to Score"), but this is no problem for new readers.
I like many other reviewers through the years (I am a user of Quicker since 1992 and have several GB of data in Quicken) have seen the usual Quicken dysfunctions. These include loading the program with loads of stuff that makes the program slower, more bug prone, and often not entirely useful. But over the last 8 years I have ground my teeth over the slowing down of the program to a crawl. I keep my computer optimized to the hilt. I do intensive computer graphics for work so everything must be optimized to the max including strapped 1GB Video cards, several TB (with a TB) of redundant RAID storage, optimizing registry in Windows 7 Profession, weekly fragmentation of all drives, running of Malware check and Antivirus systems scans on a weekly basis, and active industrial strength constant monitoring firewall and antivirus etc. The high computer programs I use have gotten better with their use of memory and channeling video. But a goofy financial program: Quicken: No.
All that said, here is my general thoughts on 2 software companies. Never buy anything from Microsoft for at least 6 months after its released to the public for sale. That is the minimal amount of time for them to get their stuff to work right. For Intuit, it is at least 2 months. So this year I waited more than 2 months and purchased the download of Quicken 2012 for Home and Business in mid-Dec 2012. The result, still I have long load times for my largest account. However, most everything else is about 25% faster in where it counts like entering new checks or deposits in my largest account. My 5-star rating is not justified for this product on customer service areas or treatment of its customers with an endless away of formats through the years that seem to be as much about keeping you upgrading as any real functional benefit. However, I gave it a 5-star rating to help offset those that might not have optimized or do not know how to keep their "oil changed" on their computer. I am guess I have set a low bar for Quicken given its dogged performance decrease at an increasing rate (remember Calculus) but they deserve some credit for finally doing something with their release 4 (Dec. 2012) to make shine for doing several routine tasks.
Intuit listen up. Optimized your programs to be less error prone and be much faster, stop bloating the program with things you like to drive customers to "Cloud" services you want to sell, and think twice before changing formats all the time. However, thanks for making 2012 Home and Business demonstratively faster in several key areas !
