"Good for using iPlayer, but dangerous side-effects."
Good use of iPlayer, or other websites or radio stations where a British IP is needed.
Possible side effects of this software, possible phishing and malware.
think this piece of software is actually very dangerous, and some strange things are happening to my computer, and I think it is because of this piece of software. Basically, I installed the software about a month ago, and it was very good - access to iPlayer and other UK only sites, but then since yesterday when I try to go on the Internet, without the Expat Shile running, I cannot connect to the Internet and it says the site is down temporarily and it cannot connect. Then, magically when I start up Expat Shield, everything is fine and access to all the sites returns. It should not be like this, I should not have to have Expat Shield running to be able to have access to the Internet, so it makes me think they are up to something fishy... If anyone else is having this same problem I would be interested to hear about it, or if anyone has any advice then I would also be interested to hear about it. Thanks, and be careful with this software.
