Microsoft money updating accounts hung up

Another nit that bothered me was the regular bombardment with what amounted to ads.

There’s no way this doesn’t create headaches for at least some Windows users, as well as Microsoft. Some people will misinterpret the installation as malware, since Microsoft hasn’t historically updated its operating systems in this fashion.I did not feel that one package had a huge advantage over the other – in fact, they felt pretty similar to me. I sat down and thought about the time I was spending entering information into the program, appropriately categorizing all of my spending, and looking at reports, and I realized two things. Sure, I could see areas where I was spending a lot, but almost always my own mental accounting told me where I was spending too much.I liked Microsoft’s data views somewhat better, but I had more difficulty connecting to my accounts with Money – but, honestly, they both did the job just fine. I also had a great picture of my month-in month-out money flow, but it was a of work to get this picture.Second, I could be doing a lot of other things with that time.Like, for example, working on The Simple Dollar or working on my computer consulting business or spending time with my family.
