It sounds like a wonderful product. But how well it works is just a mystery.
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!
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.
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.
- Some advanced features are too technical for a general user like me to exploit.
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.
It should automatically come with Windows to protect against the security holes.
I don't know how to use it.
What is this suppose to be?

Seeing your three Zone Alarm reviews in two minutes ( highly rated, repeating with the same same words and all), you sound like you are working for Zone Alarm and bashing other people's product.

What you do is scan your drive(s) to make an inventory of the programs that are there. Anything new after that will be denied, which means that attacks can't run, no matter how they approach. Malicious software has to run a process in order to do damage and OSsurance won't let it if you didn't
permit it early on. Check out the user manual, it explains it.
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.
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.
I wish I could actually attack the hacker back.
