Which home accounting software?

I want to buy some easy to use software and was thinking of "Microsoft Money" until I read some horrendous reviews on the Amazon website. I just want to be able to enter all of my outgoings and income, reconcile it each month and be able to look at a few simple graphs or charts to see where my finances are. Can anybody advise me please. Quicken is withdrawing from the UK and all of the others I have looked at seem to be targetting businesses. Thanks.

excel in ms office is very good once you sort out setting formulas

I don't know much about excel and formulas which is why I'm looking for a programme that does it all for me. Thanks though.

I have been using Quicken 2000 since it came out have had no problems at all never had to call for help or update anything,just use for ther same things that you want it for.
I can't see as it will make any difference to me when Quicken withdraw if I am wrong someone will put me right.

Got my first Quicken from a free CD (I think it was PC Advisor in the early days)and I registered this free of charge.
Surprised when the 2000 came out - Quicken sent me an updated CD free of charge.
I cannot heap enough praise on the application or the suppliers - a real pleasure in these days of multi-probs!

I am still using Quicken 3 which came on floppy disks. It does all I want from it so I see no point in changing/updating. As joe95 says, I see no problem if Quicken withdraw, after all I am still using Win 98SE which is not supported any more but still working for me.

up to 6 - but it wasn't compatable with the Banks I was using (in the sense of downloading bank statements for reconciliation), so switched to Money and not looked back since.
To be fair to Quicken it was an excellent program and it was the Banks who were being awkward, but it was such as massive disadvantage to me that I swapped over. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Money - it does everything I need and more.

I have used Money Manager from Connect Software for many years.
It doesn't talk to Bank Statements but has a superb add on package called Final Account for end of year reconcilation.
In addition it is a 100% British product
Have a look

Try Ace Money Lite, which is free and well maintained. Another free product, which is newer, but appears to be nice and featured well enough is Abassis. Use Google to find them

I read somewhere that this will be / is discontinued in favour of "Quickbooks" which costs several 10's of pounds more.
