hmm i remain sceptical about this release as I expect it will be mainly tailored for IE also my other fear is that this will encourage much more advanced types spyware :-/

I have have just downladed it...first impression:- looks good, if you do the defenition update there is one straight away.

Has privacy tools...IE history eraser, cookies, url history, temp files etc.

You can view all current runnin process's and stope them if necessary
Look at and block startup programs

Schedule...set it to run every day etc

Real time protection.....Internet agents (9), system agents(25) and Application agents (25)

I'm usiing it and like it ALOT, though on my box, nothing found, on the office machines, plenty that adaware and spybot missed.

important for users to realize this is much better then a beta, since giant had this allready released

Yeah it seems pretty cool, although it detected the winVNC software at work as spyware for some reason. Not much of a problem however, as there's an option to "always ignore" stuff. It gets my vote :up:.

ya, giant was too aggresive for my liking, and you pretty much have to evaluate everything this program finds

I think the quaranteen feature is called for on plenty of these

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
