I got a license from ebay for £5.50 buts its another option


You need to keep an eye on Kaspersky, last year they had the Barclays 5 user licence along with a money off code for Kaspersky, £5 off so I ended up paying £1.99 per 5 user licence, bought 6!

Look at the cxxt, that should be more than enough to make you boycott Kaspersky forever

Pretty much as above the cashback will not be paid out unless you purchase a set term subscription rather than just the trial

Yeah its setup for both cashback and goft to be rejected. Though you do get 3 copies of azure magazine for £1 so not all bad but not as attractive as described in the deal

You need to make it clear that the £7.35 via TopCashback, will as is usual, only be paid when you pay for a full subscription, not if you cancel after the £1 for 3 issue trial. There are variable charges for the full sub. If using the TCB link, the magazine delivered in the print only (cheapest) option, does not include the free USB drive. The free gifts offered with Dennis magazines are sometimes only sent after payment for a full sub. What is the origin of your printed listing ?

Ashampoo produce some very good software, worth keeping an eye on them even if this one is not for you. I got Snap 7 for about £4 and it is very useful for me, an equivalent program would be Snagit and the like. This will let you capture almost anything on your screen e.g. video, mouse movement for tutorials, skype calls etc. Snagit 6 is free (again) at the moment and worth a look.

Don't know why this is voted cold I just made 2 accounts and got 2 cyberghost subscriptions for free save me £30 . Cyberghost is great for accessing UK blocked websites and anonymous downloading.

Thank you - cyber ghost is a handy program to have

wow supercontastic

Got this free with a retail version of AVG Security last year. No updates for Tuneup since last November, think i will go back to one of the free versions when it expires.

These tools are available on windows if you have a bit of patience to find out how. Right click on desired hdd 》find disk cleanup. Saved yourself £8 there.

Agree, Ccleaner free and excellent.

Hi, First post, so be gentle! I've recently bought a new camcorder, HD, so have been on the look out for a decent, but not too expensive video editing package for my pc. After a… Read more

Don't have the latest Intel processor but this software works well for me using the cuda cores in my GTX550i to render HD footage, certainly way faster than Vegas and Premiere elements that I've tried.

From the link, there is also the option to upgrade to V10 from 8/9 for £29.99 with some nice free extras, which I've just done, so looking forward to testing against 9.

Update: If you go for V10 Ultra Upgrade with the extra goodies for £29.99 there is no check for a previously installed version, so that makes it even more of a bargain.

good to hear that.....
your experience backs up some of the reviews i read. nice to get that additional confidence.
i've not used it in anger myself yet though, only downloaded last night, but looking forward to it.
yeah, PowerDirector 10 is out, I noticed that...but as far as I could tell it's not that much different..slightly faster maybe and more 3D functionality, but i'm not into 3D so happy with PD9 i think.
someone here may be able to educate us further on PD10 though..!

This software supports Intel Quick Sync, which gives phenomenal performance with an Intel GPU.

When it first appeared, I ran tests against other leading video editing apps such as Avid Studio and Sony Vegas Studio and when it came to rendering, using the quick sync feature utilising my otherwise pretty mundane Intel HD 3000 display adapter, it was in some instances, 5 times quicker.

This is not the latest version of PowerDirector but for this price, it's a great product.

For anyone wanting 6 months' worth of this magazine, this is an excellent deal. The memory stick's only worth about 50p, so you don't need to worry too much if you don't get it! (_;)

You won't get the 1Gb stick unless you carry on your subscription after the 13 weeks which is £35 for 26 issues.Still not a bad deal @46p per issue for the 1st 13 issues.

carp, was 6p a while ago for 6issues may i add. So * that by 2 add inflation. Come to a total of no more than 20p. This aint a deal, its just better than advertised price of the magzine

Cheers, done.

Subscribed to a similar CA deal in the past - cancelling direct debit was all there was to it. Dad enjoys these simple-to-read IT mags so heat added!

Just cancel the DD instruction via your online banking facility - and that's all there is to it.

you could always use the magazines as donations to the local dentist/doctors etc...

Pretty hopeless magazine TBH, seems to be geared towards complete newbies - good if you need to be told where to find the start button or how to remove a USB stick, but a bit of a waste of time otherwise.

Also, they quite often have deals of 6 issues for 6p with a free gift - I got a 1Gb USB drive from them a couple of months ago.

Thanks for posting, but 3 issues for 3p is a bit of a waste of 3p IMO!
