Your two most obvious choices would be QuickBooks or Peachtree. My understanding is that QB is
an 'everyman's' program whereas Peachtree requires a more sophisticated understanding of accounting.
We have used QB Pro successfully for years. The only downside is: Every 3-4 years they require you to upgrade.
QB offers payroll services. But so does Bank of America (if you bank there), and we find that is much less expensive. We use the B of A payroll services. Sign up as www.BankofAmerica.com
I'm hearing that Staples is having an unbelievable sale on QuickBooks Pro this week. Don't know if it's still on and/or available where you live. If you decide the QB route, check out Staples.com ASAP.

Finally, here's the name of a good QuickBooks Certified Consultant and CPA, good friend, and frequent contributor to this forum. David aka Luckiest. If you decide to use QB, he can help you set up your chart of accounts and get up and running. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Good luck to you, hope this helps.
