    "Once good, now rubbish, find an alternative. Need to be able to select NO stars"

    June 15, 2007  |   By PhilLee

    Pros

    The old version

    Cons

    Permanently running service taking over 20Mb, even if the software isn't running.

    Nags for upgrade.

    Refuses to update itself with new definitions (although that broke on the last version) - I suspect that it won't work through a decent firewall.

    Taking my firewall offline to update software is hardly something a security app should encourage me to do.

    Now sticking with Spybot S&D & Silent Runners.

    Shame they had to break a good app, and unlikely to encourage sales of the paid for version.
