    "Incredibly prying and annoying active update feature a thumbs down"

    August 11, 2006  |   By yaegel


    The GUI has greatly improved, this is a good program to look at (if you can manage to look at it and not run it). and It's very dependable


    AOL's New Activeupdate feature (which they convienently don't offer an uninstall, or any options for) annoys the buggers out of you with 1 or 2 updates a day, that are completely unnecessary. But heres the best part: not only can you not uninstall any of the updates or the updater, but the updater NEVER gives you an option to do anything but update. What happened to courtesey? "You will have this update, do you want it now, or later"...I'm uninstalling and getting software I trust.
