    "Very comprehensive, but sometimes intrusive"

    March 3, 2010  |   By webbtc

    Pros

    Constantly scanning computer and e-mails received for viruses, etc. Virus definitions are often updated.

    Cons

    The software can and does intrude on currently running programs without warning. When uploading information for their research, my computer is locked up for as much as 5 minutes. During this time the cursor is also frozen.

    Summary

    In general, a very good and comprehensive program. Virus definitions database is frequently updated. It is also easier to use than other programs of this type. The only anoyance I've experienced is having my computer locked up while up-loading research information to their website. This happens without warning and brings whatever you are working on to a screeching halt. Perhaps this kind of information draw could be rescheduled for after work hours.
