    "Best toolbar"

    January 1, 2009  |   By alyoob

    Version: Web Security Guard 4.5.5.2

    Pros

    I love the product becaue it alerts me right away when some malicious adware spyware ect. will ibe installed on my computer.

    Cons

    There is nothing wrong with the toolbar.

    Summary

    I recently went to a website that had adware on it. When I finished browsing that website my computer acted very weird. Did scan with adware se and found the culprit I searched online for an addon for firefox that would prevent adware spyware from being installed on my computer. I found web security guard and tried it out. Went to the same website that I previously got infected by and the toolbar alerted me that some adware might be installed so i blocked it from installing. Continued using the website and nothing installed.

    Updated on Jan 10, 2009

    The toolbar minimized the need to scan my computer for adware and spyware on a regular bases. Instead of scanning the computer every week I would scan the computer every two weeks or so. Nothing really serious was found because the toolbar did the trick.

    Version: Web Security Guard 4.5.5.2

    Pros

    Before installing W.S.G i had to formate my PC nearly everly month.
    because we never know the site we r entering is GOOD one or DANGEROUS.
    I am using this software form last 4 month and uptill now there is no problem.

    Cons

    It come with crawler toolbar which can be annoying to someone. BUT let me tall you tha crawler is also a search engine like google, yahoo.With web security guard they are just promoting their product which are also free.But never force U to download.

    "Awesome"

    August 11, 2008  |   By Nummers_Dad

    Version: Web Security Guard 4.5.5.2

    Pros

    It is far more sensitive and better than Mcafee and Link Scanner! The crawler toolbar can be removed easily! 1. on crawler toolbar choose customize button, and general settings. 2. click advanced settings button and uncheck the show crawler toolbar in each new browser window. now in explorer right click on explorer bar and you will see crawler toolbar with a check mark in front of it, remove the checkmark and the toolbar is gone for good... :)

    Cons

    nothing, this program works great and I also use the spyware terminator on my other machine and that works great also... :)
