    SymWriter

    Crashes when it feels like it, removes options when it feels like it, has to go off to the internet to register itself - oh and if I have to re-image a machine I have to tell them (as they count the registrations, not the active registrations).

    And when the first version was delivered it didn't know about proxy settings and installed a lovely piece of Malware to control the licensing.

    Oh, and it borks there previous version of the software as well

    Then again - I've never come across an education digital camera thats actually any good
    Version 3 of the software isn't too bad, signed drivers and the ability to redirect the save folders.

    Primary Target Tracker and EYFS Tracker.

    Thank God that we are moving away from these soon, we are phasing in Classroom Monitor which is 100% better that this rubbish with its clueless support as well.

    Glad my torment meant that I could spare someone else.

    I have a new one to add: Log-It box from TTS.
    Basically its a data logger with some software to install on a machine. The advert says "Share your data across the network!"

    Great I think as I begin to install it. Oh..to access the network settings you need a password and I am instructed to call my reseller. Odd but ok I'll get in contact. Oh..the person I am speaking to has no idea about that so she will pass it on to the developers...oh they have no idea about that either.

    What an earth is the logic behind making you phone up for a password just to save data on the network anyway!

    The whole Adobe CS4 suite in general, but mostly Premiere Pro. So many stupid quirks >.<

    Its a tough one as the competition is so intense but I'd have to name my all time top 3 as

    Crazytalk (And I haven't even got round to rolling it out yet- I reckon in another couple of weeks I'll have managed to get the first copy registered!)

    Report Assist (Bad bad software from both technical/users/parents point of view )

    BlackCat SuperTools (The worst of education software bundles - a triumph of marketing over ability )

    regards

    Simon
