Intuit Quicken 2002 Deluxe for Windows

Once upon a time, Quicken was our favorite money manager, but version 2002 leaves us cold. Don't bother upgrading, and if you want today's most innovative personal finance program, switch to Money.

AEG Let's Taste

This app is useful on its own now, but with a concept feature on display at IFA 2014, you might never again have to open your oven door to check on food while it's cooking.

Norton AntiVirus 2003

For zapping viruses, worms, and other malicious code, you can't go wrong with Norton AntiVirus 2003. But current AntiVirus users need not upgrade.

PGP Personal for Windows 8.0

PGP 8.0 is an industrial-strength encryption program with all the features necessary to protect your files and online communications.

Microsoft Plus! Digital Media Edition

Plus Digital Media Edition is a mixed bag of music and video Windows add-ons, with just enough goodies to make it worth the price.

LibreOffice 4.3 PC

LibreOffice is a great office suite, but it can't compete with modern apps that offer strong compatibility with Microsoft Office, and also work on mobile devices and the Web.

ViaVoice Pro USB Edition 9.0

ViaVoice 9.0 is awesome, if expensive, for those without a speech-recognition program. But if you're using ViaVoice 8.0, this version isn't different enough to warrant an upgrade.

Microsoft PowerPoint 2002

Got PowerPoint 2000? Then 2002 isn't different enough to justify its price tag. However, if you have an older edition, consider moving up.

Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2005

PC-cillin Internet Security 2005 delivers speedy virus scanning and a host of other Internet protection tools--all for the price of most antivirus-only programs alone.

Editors' Choice

Microsoft Money 2003 Deluxe

Money hasn't made enough improvements for 2002 users to upgrade, but thanks to its excellent tech support, this app is still the best money manager for Windows to date.

DtSearch Desktop 7.01

Most users are better off using free desktop search tools, but power users will appreciate the enormous control offered by DtSearch.

Adobe Premiere Elements 13

While the updates to its Shake Stabilizer is welcome, the rest of the program's updates don't feel terribly compelling.

Mozilla 1.0

Mozilla is the best free alternative to Microsoft IE. And it's faster, to boot.

Apple Photos OSX

Apple's Photos for Mac OS X Yosemite combines an iOS-like interface with advanced editing tools familiar to desktop users. CNET takes a closer look at the developer release.

Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1

Windows XP's first service pack is a worthwhile download--if only for the security patches--as long as you have the bandwidth. If not, you're better off piecing together XP fixes in smaller, single downloads.

Microsoft Office Small Business Edition 2003

Microsoft Office Small Business Edition 2003

Pinnacle Studio 8.0

Pinnacle Studio 8.0's easy-to-use interface and intuitive tools make it the ideal package for beginners. However, its slow encoding and limited number of audio tracks might frustrate some.

Adobe Photoshop Elements 13

If you're looking for gee-whiz features, you won't find them here. But there are still some nice enhancements.
