    "? MYSTERY PROGRAM ????????????"

    October 28, 2006   |   By VisionMaster

    Version: OSsurance Desktop 4.0

    Pros

    It sounds like a wonderful product. But how well it works is just a mystery.

    Cons

    After installing this program, your asked to restart the computer, which I did. But the computer wouldnt really strat up. After several tries, I managed to get the computer up, but it was extremely sluggish and impossbile to work with. The only program that I had installed before this problem, was OSsurance. I immediately uninstalled and rebooted. PRESTO! My computer worked just fine. If certain programs need special configurations, then CNET should be kind enough to fill us in on the specs required in their summary of the program. If you want to try out this program, try it on a test machine first. I cant give a better evaluation untill they invent a pentium 20 at least, thats what it'll take to run this program!

    "Now even my Firefox is secure. Right on."

    June 20, 2005   |   By knit1

    Version: OSsurance Desktop 4.0

    Pros

    I have never used protection until this year. The adware and spyware was driving me nuts and slowing me down. Once I got it cleaned off I wanted to keep clean. OSsurance is great because it's stopping stealthy programs from running or installing and telling me when it happens. I thought an antivirus was the only way to protect, but now I realize it's not protection at all. It's nice knowing OSsurance will block damage and I won't have to recover from it at my expense.

    Cons

    The windows are a bit small.

    - One package covering all malicious attacks.

    - No worry about updates

    - It provides security without complexity

    It simplifies my life in computer protection.

    Cons

    - Some advanced features are too technical for a general user like me to exploit.

    "Finally something that stops spyware and viruses without requiring daily updates"

    June 12, 2005   |   By SecurityConscious

    Version: OSsurance Desktop 4.0

    Pros

    Fully protected without signature updates. It even protects from software vulnerabilites before I install security patches! A bonus - no one else can install unwanted programs if I use the password feature.

    Cons

    It should automatically come with Windows to protect against the security holes.

    "These people seem to have all the bases covered. Good work!"

    May 26, 2005   |   By RLP

    Version: OSsurance Desktop 4.0

    Pros

    I don't miss live updates of antivirus. I've had Ossurance stop a worm and then a few days later the antivirus company comes out with a signature -- too late.

    "Finally some protection that FREES UP all my time and RAM."

    May 19, 2005   |   By ec866

    Version: OSsurance Desktop 4.0

    Pros

    Quick install. Stopped and deleted some spyware (intlreco.exe)that I couldn't end even in taskmanager. I like the password feature which means that my kids can't authorize something bad that I have to clean up myself.

    Cons

    I wish I could actually attack the hacker back.
