"Not Really Free, Despite the Internet Hype"
It seems to work well. Theoretical free year of personal edition.
Eeye hounds users to buy the personal edition within a couple weeks of install, just after you've got it working. Eeye disables protection, leaving users vulnerable and without notice of the vulnerability if you don't pay for protection.
Eeye promises a year of free Blink personal edition. I spent about 2 weeks teaching it which programs were permitted access. Suddenly Eeye began asking for a key although I followed registration protocol when I initially downloaded and installed the software. Each time I started my computer, Blink took several minutes to load a window to ask for a key (and I have a brand new, fast and powerful laptop). I contacted Eeye to ask why this was happening and how to resolve it. They did not respond.
Eventually Blink told me that I had to start Blink as "administrator." When I did so, Blink would not continue unless I entered a registration key. I discovered that my computer was not protected and that Blink was not operational. I received no notice that the firewall had been disabled by Eeye. I again contacted Eeye, uninstalled the software, and decided that the hassle and failure to deliver what was promised was not an appropriate way to conduct business. Bye Eeye!!!!
