    "Best personal protection out there"

    December 29, 2013   |   By morecowbellsir

    Version: BlackICE PC Protection 3.6.crh

    Pros

    You could trace back people that were attacking you, or doing port scans etc.

    Cons

    Not available anymore

    Summary

    This was the greatest ever firewall. IBM bought it and promptly killed it. I am not sure if they integrated this software capability into something different, but I'm sure that was the case and they just have not let it be known. Good chance they use it for private security, or even for government use.

    "Setup process asked for a key, which was not provided."

    April 21, 2011   |   By RogerLittge

    Version: BlackICE PC Protection 3.6.crh

    Pros

    I've used Blackice before, and know it is a good program.

    Cons

    I could not set up BlackIce, since the setup routine asks for a key which is not provided anywhere.

    Summary

    Good software. Bad setup routine.

    "This product is no longer distributed. Install fails."

    November 19, 2010   |   By jeremy.collake

    Version: BlackICE PC Protection 3.6.crh

    Pros

    Used to be good

    Cons

    Will not work
    IBM acquired then promptly quit distributing this application
    This trial will not install
    The trial may or may not even be a leigtimate package - needs evaluation. Suspicious behavior observed, but not confirmed.

    Summary

    Dead now

    "License required, no license, no install."

    March 20, 2009   |   By Krepta3000

    Version: BlackICE PC Protection 3.6.crh

    Pros

    0 as in none.

    Cons

    The installer asks for a license, since I don't have one, it won't let me install. This is crap.

    Summary

    I dislike not being able to install, because I have no license to put in the stupid installer. Thanks, but no thanks, someone needs a very good smack in the head.

    "THIS PRODUCT IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE FOR SALE."

    March 03, 2009   |   By Monkiface

    Version: BlackICE PC Protection 3.6.crh

    Pros

    Best security ever made. Protects and tracks back to where the attack came from. No other security program has ever come close.

    Cons

    None. Black Ice was perfect.

    Summary

    IBM HAS TAKEN OVER WWW.ISS.NET. THIS PROGRAM IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE FOR SALE, NOR IS IT COMPATIBLE WITH MOST WINDOWS UPDATES FOR XP AND VISTA SINCE THE COMPANY NEVER BOTHERED TO MAKE SUCH UPDATES. IBM/ISS ONLY MAKES BUSINESS PROGRAMS NOW.
    ISS NO LONGER MAKES PRODUCTS FOR CONSUMERS.
