Nov 29th 2008 9:25PM Again, I reiterate that the overwhelming evidence from the vast majority of users says that the legitimate issues that you've experienced are unique to your Windows installation. I've personally installed the firewall in no less than 30 machines over the last couple of years and it is still on each and every one of them, often several versions later, working just fine.Some of your complaints are rather silly and point to your inability to configure the product to work the way that you want it. It can be configured to where there are virtually no warnings or interuptions other than during an installation. I've never seen the 'slow-downs' you speak of, nor the resource issues, etc, other than one time.The one occasion that I saw behavioral issues was in the case of a gent who read to many things in PC Mag Online, and had every damned useless utility known to man kind in his PC. I removed several of them, and his PC was and still is fine.From their forums I do know that there are folks that experience issues, and I know that to those people the stress is very real. But since there are tens of thousands without problems as compared to the very small percentage with the problems, the evidence says that the issues have something to do with specific Windows installations and/or their configurations.Until I experience an issue sufficient to make me lose my faith in it, or until something better comes along, I'll continue to use their Firewall. I'll have to wait and see on their AV software as that is still an unknown.
Nov 29th 2008 9:04PM I've been using it on my personal PCs for several years in XP, as well as both 32-bit & 64-bit Vista. I've also installed it on every PC that I've built and/or installed for any knowledgeable user since the middle of last year. Its never been a problem, and never slowed down any system I've installed it on.I'm sorry to say that the overwhelming evidence from the vast majority of users says that whatever issue you're having is something unique to your installation. That doesn't make it any less real or disappointing for you...I know this. I wish you the best of luck finding the cause of the issues you've experienced.
