    As I said in the 2.1 Beta thread, if logging causes you problems you can disable it.

    This version provides options for controlling logging and limiting the database size :)

    Hmm, so I've decided to test OutPost Pro. I've run the scans at GRC.com which showed me as stealth and then at http://scan.sygate.com and the scans showed the ports as blocked but not stealthed and I also ran the scan at symantec which showed me as stealth. I'd rather be stealthed. I'm confused.

    Got it installed, but not had a chance to sit down and fiddle with it yet.

    It just seems to be doing the normal firewall thing at the moment.
    It seemed to go beserk and demand that everything be reauthorised when I upgraded Trillian 2.01 to 2.011, Trillian seems to have it finger in everything according to Outpost ;)

    Component Control will prompt you a fair bit when you upgrade applications, especially those who hook into everything.

    You can of course disable it but i don't recommend doing so.

    I have no problem clicking 2 buttons again, I just thought it was strange that I had to reauthorise Steam, for example, because I had updated Trillian.
