Act! is complete garbage. I was tired of the errors popping up everytime I opened and closed Act! So I decided to uninstall and reinstall. Now I can't even open the demo database, I spend more time messing around with this stupid software than it's worth. I am going to use Outlook (Which, by the way works every time I need it) to stay as organized as possible til I find a decent online CRM. Hopefully I find one that i can at least use the Act! file to restore the 1291 contacts and history I just loss. It bogles my mind that this company would produce such a pile of problems and then just make excuse to everone that has problems with it. If anyone knows of a good online solution please let me know. My Act! cd just went in to the garbage.

"Unfortunately, most ACT! issues are nothing to do with ACT!, but with the Windows OS that you are installing to"
Really? Thats freaking hilarious and makes no sense. If Act! is not made to be used with Windows OS then what are you supposed to install it on? Linux? Maybe Act! should get their "Act" together and figure it out like all of the other software programs I have installed on my computer that works just fine with my operating system. I was actually told by tech support to turn off Windows automatic update because it wasn't necessary. What kind of a fix is that? And as far as Act! online, I don't think I will be spending any more money for their services. I already have a $200.00 cd in the garbage.

Well I don't think I misunderstood him because I was in a screen share, he had control of my computer and is actually the one that turned it off as he was telling me that. He also wanted to uninstall my antivirus and I declined. But I am not suprised at your response as it seems to be the norm. Always someone or something else's fault. Act! never has anything to do with the problems.

Here's a fact for you, Act! is completely worthless. Here's another fact for you, I am out two hundred dollars and countless hours of working in Act! only to have it eventually fail and not allow me to use the backups that were made prior to uninstalling it. But, hey. you are probably right it's not a problem with Act! it's a problem with my computer or operating system that by the way are still working just fine.

I fixed the problem, I guess you missed that in my earlier post. I simply was looking for an alternative solution. I am sure there are many others that share my frustration and maybe have tried some of the other products.
