I'm afraid I must be old and grumpy too. There hasn't been anything on a coverdisk this year that I wanted to try.
I'm sure it must be differcult getting new stuff all the time to fill a disk but getting a new internet security suite each month is not my cup of tea at all.
As for the free full packages are they full packages or are they timed trials. I've said this before as have others, in my opinion a program that stops working or stops certain bits working after a period of time is not a full program, at best its a trial program which gives you the full options for a period of time. A full program is the entire program that isn't time limited and keeps on working.
I bin mine now.
