(CD-ROM) This is a programme which, if it had wrekod, would have given good value for money the interface is intuitive, there are helpful videos and well-written tutorials, and generally it looks as if it should be easy to learn and use productively. Unfortunately, even after installing the Roxio Service Pack, it basically froze when attempting to close down the application (video editing) I was working with. Although I could force a close with Windows 7, the programme would then freeze at the opening splash screen if I attempted to reopen it. In fact the only way to persuade it to open at all was by restarting Windows 7 not easy because somehow the software has managed to corrupt the sleep and restart routines in the OS so the only way to turn off the computer was at the plug. There are other reports on the web about teething difficulties with this software and Windows 7 (and Vista too). I have arranged to return the software to Amazon (excellent returns service from them). I'd recommend either waiting for any bugs to be ironed out by Roxio, or taking advantage of Roxio's free trial period before you decide to buy. Good luck!
