"Avoid the paid version"

Pros

It appears to do an acceptable job of protection

Cons

The Company is impossible to deal with when something goes wrong.

Summary

The product may be OK, but the Company is unbelievably arrogant and indifferent to customer concerns.

I purchased two licenses.
I had to reformat one of my computers, which erased the system register, and my registration information. So, I simply reinstalled the app, but it announced I had already installed it twice and would have to purchase another licence.

1. I contacted the Company, and they sent me a new licence--for a FREE version.
2. After several unpleasant exchanges, in which they implied I was trying to cheat them, they announced they had no record of my registration.
3. I still had the registration email, which I forwarded to them. (incidentally, it was the same email address that I had been using to contact them.)
4. They eventually sent a new registration code, but NO EXPLANATION, NO APOLOGY. Nothing!

My advice is that you may want to use their free version, but you should think twice before buying the paid version from a Company that has no sense of integrity or customer service.

"close to a scam"

Pros

I assume it worked when it was there.

Cons

Program seemed to vanish. I called then, and they have no record of me purchasing. Sometime passes, and I get an email saying I am being billed. I attempt to respond to email, and they say it was being billed by a third party company(not able to contact) and that I need to contact them . Attempts at contacting this company has not been successful.

Summary

Do no not have anything to do with this company. They take no responsibility for their product, but seem to get billing out fine.
