Editors' review

This oversized software claims to prevent messenger apps from running on your system, but that didn't prove to be the case in our tests.

The program loaded fine, but Antimessenger's installation process was a bit lengthy. A splash screen lets you know the program is loading, and you'll find it running in the background, but it would have been nice for the publisher to include more details about how Antimessenger works.

It's supposed to automatically detect IM programs like ICQ or Yahoo Messenger and prevent them when restricted. However, no system tray icon or interface was offered to view restricted programs or adjust any of the programs settings. No help file--not even a readme text file--could be found, and the poorly-written info on the publisher's Web site was too basic to be helpful.

When we put the program to the test, it wasn't able to block Yahoo or AIM messengers. Antimessenger's hefty 24MB size and $78 price tag aren't great selling points either, especially considering the limited features and functionality. Save your time (and money) avoid the faulty Antimessenger, which didnt' block IM programs and didn't deliver in user support.
