    "Crashed TWO computers"

    February 01, 2010   |   By DH1968

    Version: Securepoint Personal Firewall & VPN Client 3.6.11

    Pros

    Um...well...

    Cons

    10 years as a net admin/PC tech and this is the worst program I've ever installed. First installation was on a P4 laptop running XP SP3 and the second was on a dual core tower running XP SP3. Immediately after installation, both units blue screened

    Summary

    It is a waste of your time to download this and I suggest to CNET that they remove it from their lineup. 2 installs + 2 BSOD = Major Failure

    If you get a Blue Screen
    1. Restart your PC and tap F8. Choose either safe mode option
    2. Click Start-Run and type msconfig and press enter
    3. Under the start up tab uncheck sppfw click OK
    4 Restart your PC and remove the program through the uninstall shown in All Programs or through the Control Panel.

    Version: Securepoint Personal Firewall & VPN Client 3.6.11

    Pros

    I never got it working

    Cons

    I installed the software and was prompted for a restart. I restarted and got the blue screen. I restarted 3 times and got it every time. I started in safe mode and unistalled this software. now my computer is back to normal.

    Summary

    don't waste your time

    "Reboot loop"

    November 09, 2008   |   By cyberguild

    Version: Securepoint Personal Firewall & VPN Client 3.6.11

    Pros

    Free. Has VPN client - lacking in XP MCE (Media Center Edition) for some dumb reason.

    Cons

    Installed on XP MCE with SP3. It required a reboot. After reboot and the start of Securepoint, there was no error message and the product didn't handle whatever problem it was having - got into a reboot loop. Had to start in Safe Mode & uninstall.

    Summary

    Don't install. If you do, use F8 to go into Safe Mode - reboot, after you see a flash on your screen - press F8, so you can uninstall in the Controll Panel, Add/Remove Programs.

    "Blue Screen"

    October 04, 2007   |   By wavster

    Version: Securepoint Personal Firewall & VPN Client 3.6.11

    Pros

    N/A

    Cons

    I didn't get a chance to try the software. The problem may be that I tried the software on Windows XP Home edition. Professional edition has built in IPSec capability and this may be the reason why it locked up on me. First error message was in German and I had to use Babel fish to translate for me.

    "Horrible because of installation problems"

    September 04, 2006   |   By pk7465

    Version: Securepoint Personal Firewall & VPN Client 3.6.11

    Cons

    On computer restart after initial installation, the computer was put into a contiuous loop - installation attempt, failure and restart - over and over. I had to use my Win Patrol program to stop it.

    "I think it's real good!"

    March 22, 2006   |   By rocknman

    Version: Securepoint Personal Firewall & VPN Client 3.6.11

    Pros

    Easy to use, easy to understand, user manual (PDF) available. I had Sygate before, then tried NetVeda Safety.Net. It was a little technical and didn't remember trusted sites all the time for me. So far, Securepoint is doing great.

    Cons

    Other than having a word here and there in German look out of place...nothing yet.

    "horrible, when i installed on my computer it had a virus that infected my comp."

    January 06, 2006   |   By Aeonblue

    Version: Securepoint Personal Firewall & VPN Client 3.6.11

    Cons

    what i did not like was that this was a fake firewall and really a virus. when i installed this on my computer it caused it to crash exactly 2.5 minutes after system start-up. this forced me to use system restore and take my computer back to another date to fix it
