Going to their web site there seems to be no way to download an update from the previous version. Also no matter how manyE-Mails you send them they dont respond. Wish I had spent $10 more and bought the "real" version from the opposition. Very dissapointed.

I have two major issues with this software.

1. Every time I launch it, it asks me for my admin password. I can't give that password to my daughter nor type it in every time she wants to use it.

2. It forces a screen resolution switch, which messes with icons on the desktop.

Overall, it looks more like a poor port from Windows, even if there the software is pretty good.

Even though I was already in my 50's, Mavis was able successfully to teach me to keyboard, greatly alleviating the agonizing process of learning to deal with the horror that was MS-DOS.

I highly recommend her.
