    "What the hell is the fuss about?"

    January 20, 2012  |   By The1980

    Pros

    Passed all online security tests I found and a leaktest from grc.com.
    Application control can be set to auto or manual.
    The amount of alerts can be controlled. It logs everything if set accordingly.
    It has online and offline help.
    New good looking icon.

    Cons

    Interface is a bit too simple for my taste.
    Doesnt have an offline installer.

    Summary

    At first I was reluctant to try it out because of all the negative reviews, I'm glad I installed it cause there is nothing wrong with it. It works fine in my win7, 64bit. In fact, it is better than the previous version, it is now bugless. I cannot speak for XP and Vista users. As for performance, I dont notice any slowdowns with my system or internet connectivity (i5 core/4Gb RAM).
