    "Best Online Security Yet"

    October 14, 2008   |   By Bad213Boy

    Version: BufferZone Security for P2P File Sharing 2.10-37

    Pros

    It stops everything and anything. The best thing about it is that you don't need to update in order to be secure. This program will eliminate between 3-5 other AV, maleware, or spyware programs you have in your arsenal.

    Cons

    The only issue I have is that it will dramatically slow your downloads down. Why? I have no idea. Perhaps its the firewall protection it adds. Trustware does need to improve its uninstalling list within BZ.

    Summary

    A lot of people complain about the BZ uninstall operation. If you're downloading a program from download.com, you don't need to protect yourself from an already clean program. Do yourself a favor and move the install program outside of BZ and then install it into your PC. If you download Revo, you'll be able to uninstall any program and any registry keys they leave behind. I like to keep BZ for internet surfing and opening up applications that I now are not safe.

    It was a little tricking figuring out how to use uTorrent with BZ. You have to install it outside of BZ. Then make sure uTorrent is completely turned off. Goto your Torrent site and click on your download link and begin downloading. You'll notice BZ cuts your download speed by 75%, at least it did for me. Thats if you use internet tweaks from Cablenut. With a 6Mb download speed, I can average around 8Mb/s. And thats without that overrated Speedboost from Comcast.

    If you're a hard core downloader like me, you'll download Download Direct and feast off Rapidshare all day. But since BZ will limit my download speed, I turn off BZ and download Avira AntiVir Personal to suppliment BZ. According to av-comparatives.org, Avira is actually better than AVG in the month of August. av-comparatives.org will list all the popular AV programs and perform tests with them. They can even tell you which program is high on false positives and determine their on-demand scanning speed. Betwen Avira's speed, high protection rate, and very low resources it needs, its idea for a backup. Throw in Ad-aware and Spybot and you'll be good as gold. You'll be ready for pirating anything the internet has to offer.

    "More trouble than I want. Actually you can't put no stars. s\b minus 3 stars."

    Version: BufferZone Security for P2P File Sharing 2.10-37

    Pros

    Not one good attribute.

    Cons

    After downloading you must restart. After reloading itself I crashed and spent hours trying to fix or remove. No matter what I did it would not perform. Finally I had to reinstall my O\S Hours spent relaoding programs and passwords etc etc. Don't waste your time on this one and that is how it is!

    "i dont know"

    May 05, 2007   |   By blsphaller15

    Version: BufferZone Security for P2P File Sharing 2.10-37

    Pros

    Awesome idea, great interface...

    Cons

    my internet wouldnt connect after installing this program. Tried everything i could to try to restore the connection...in the 15 minutes that this program was on my computer i got 3 blue screens, prompting me that there had been a critical system error. I recently installed a fresh copy of xp so there would be no other underlying cause for this. Also the program is impossible to uninstall in regular windows mode. I use youruninstaller 2006. I was forced to boot into safe mode, uninstall, reboot, and everything was in top form again. This program obviously has some bugs but if fixed i would love to give it a try

    "Very unstable"

    March 11, 2007   |   By Diamondjade

    Version: BufferZone Security for P2P File Sharing 2.10-37

    Pros

    none

    Cons

    I downloaded bufferzone after reading a review. It slowed my browser and computer would crash often. Removing it from the computer was another fun exerciese. Not worth it at this stage.

    "SLOWS down My system beyond belief!"

    February 22, 2007   |   By GlamourDomme

    Version: BufferZone Security for P2P File Sharing 2.10-37

    Pros

    Did not experience any.

    Cons

    Limewire froze and would not work at all. All programs were so slow that I did not have the patience after waiting more than 60-seconds for applications to open. I uninstalled, but fortunately used TweakNow Registry Cleaner (download free version on this site) to remove unnecessary files. I was very disappointed. Using Windows XP Professional.

    "Great Idea, Poor Execution"

    January 11, 2007   |   By beahwolf

    Version: BufferZone Security for P2P File Sharing 2.10-37

    Pros

    The idea is what I like most about this program; clearly, it was time for someone to develop a product like BufferZone. The download and installation was flawless, and the ease of placing programs in the buffered zone is beyond reproach. However... read the Cons of this program.

    Cons

    I absolutely hate it when a program attempts to prevent itself - intentionally or not - from being un-installed; BufferZone did not make its de-installation, easy. Also, I did not like the limited use of the FREE program. Nearly 4/5's of the features have been deactivated. The worse part of this program was how it affected my other software programs. First, I noticed that Firefox would not load images on a website. Then, when I tried to run Limewire, it would not load and, in fact, instructed me to re-install it. Then, there was the PC performance issue; my computer started acting as though it had a virus or something; downloading image-less websites took several seconds, and MS Office literally took minutes to load. I finally gave BufferZone the boot when my treasured family photos disappeared from my pictures folder. To top this all off, after I un-installed BufferZone, all of the files that I had downloaded via Limewire BEFORE I had installed BufferZone, were gone. This program is a great idea, but it definitely needs some work.

    "!!!!!!!!!Unstable!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    November 09, 2006   |   By Top_secret

    Version: BufferZone Security for P2P File Sharing 2.10-37

    Pros

    It has a good ideal, but they need to go back to the drawling board.

    Cons

    I'm not sure how this product has gotten such high reviews. I thought i found what would be the next generation of security products. I tried the trial version which has most of the functions disabled. I then bought the full version to find out that every time i tried to use it with any program on my computer that I crashed my computer giving me the blue screen of death, and a count down to a memory dump. I wasted my money. Don't waste yours.
