Now that you have had a chance to use the software for a while, what - if anything - would you like to see changed/added/omitted from the final release version?

Does not say Beta on the majorgeeks site, but does say 60 day trial which makes me think it may not yet be final version.

i think its a free trial for 60 days before you buy. The new version of NIS seems to be for download only so far, not sure if the cd version will be out soon.

would be easier to email the testers the key rather than post the box.

The new version has been for a little now as download only, well I thought all the problems I reported in the beta may now be fixed or they would not have relased the final version.

Well downloaded and installed ok thats better. But all the hassle i had with the vault in beta is still there, i backed up the vault to the desktop first. Again vault would not let the password work, spent ages with live chat trying to fix, norton manage to corrupt my backup during import and also delete all my online vault info too. I wonder now do they take our feedback seriously. the tech on live chat eventually got the vault working by deleting the vault and replacing it but have lost all my logins. hoping next year will be better.
