    "Great protection without performance problems"

    June 02, 2006   |   By drakarman

    Version: Aura 1.4.12

    Pros

    The program protects you as you surf the web. It is a small enough program that it doesn't affect the performance of your computer. You can stop the protection at any time. Aura stops all programs and files from being downloaded while you surf the web.

    Cons

    none for me

    "Reassurance and Security In One!"

    May 31, 2006   |   By jus2cusmile

    Version: Aura 1.4.12

    Pros

    Since having AURA in our computer, there have been NO more instances of our comp freezing up when going to certain sites that normally WOULD always freeze up our comp. Especially game sites my daughter likes to play games at, like POGO, Yahooligans and Millsbury. Before AURA, every time, after awhile, the games she played would cause our comp to freeze up and we'd have to totally shut down and restart. Since having AURA this has NOT happened one single time and I have learned that it wasn't the games causing these freeze-ups but in actuality, it was the unauthorized downloads coming FROM these sites that were causing our comp problems! I use to dread my kids or myself, going to sites that I knew always caused our comp to freeze-but now, with AURA installed, even I play games online now because the problem is GONE!:)

    AURA WORKS! Period! I have been totally surprised by which major sites that some of these 'drive-by-downloads' are coming from! You will be too! Not just game sites either, but many others as well that millions of us use every single day!

    AURA is easy to install and so easy to use! It basically does all the work anyways. I feel better knowing that my comp is safe from all those unwanted downloads that only mess up our comp.

    I can honestly say that since we have AURA in our computer, it has been running MUCH MUCH BETTER and ours is an older comp, though upgraded, that was giving us some probs. Now with AURA, there are NO more problems, freeze-ups, sudden shut-downs, etc! Here we were ready to go buy a new comp. when all along, its these unauthorized downloads that were causing our problems with the comp!

    I highly recommend AURA to everyone who owns a comp. Spyware programs and pop-up blockers, which we also have, are great, but they are not enough security and do NOT stop these 'drive-by-downloads'. AURA DOES!

    "Awesome app, virtually eliminates the need for any other security software."

    May 28, 2006   |   By Dodge1350

    Version: Aura 1.4.12

    Pros

    Nice and clean, doesn't intrude on your activities while it weeds out the bad software out there that is trying to install on your machine without your knowledge. Lets you know what files have been trapped and keeps tabs of them. Readily identified and kept software from installation on some well known spyware distribution web sites I visit to test anti-virus and anti-spyware utilities. Acts as a buffer between you and the nasty files that are circulating to make a mess of your computer. Can't recommend this software highly enough -- must have software!!!

    Cons

    I haven't found anything yet that is not of value or does not work properly. Very good software for first version, out the door.
