What tax software should I use?

I'm planning on filing my tax return in the next few days, and I'm wondering what software I should use. Last year I used TurboTax online, but I saw the thread about TurboTax having spyware... is this just the retail version, or the online version as well?

i used the retail version of turbo tax with no problems. It ships with macrovision and you have to activate it. It will only activate on one PC. If you don't activate you can do your taxes but you can't print or file.

In other year I would say turbo tax without hesitation. I bought it again this year and just sent it back for a refund for this reason:


Though Intuit is trying to correct some of the mess:


I would go save yourself some money and hassle and just get tax cut.
