3-0 out of 5 stars It actually does work (for the most part)!
I have only have been using the program for about week, but have seen promising results. I usually receive approx. 30-40 pieces of spam a day. The SpamKiller 5.0 has actually filtered out most of the spam. If it does filter out something that is not spam, then the real e-mail can be easily retrieved and the sender's name could be added to a friends list to avoid future blocking. During the instillation process, the program only claimed to have noticed my seldom used Outlook Express mailbox and not my Outlook program, which I use for two POP3 accounts. The instructions are not much help with this issue, but the program somehow ended up working with Outlook in a Windows XP environment. Besides the confusing intructions, the other minor another annoyance is the McAfee Security Center that pushes the purchase of McAfee's newest virus scan--it will not recoginize an older verision that has been updated on a regular basis. (The Security Center can be easily ignored and it does not interfere with any programming.) Overall, the product does remove significant amounts spam in an unintrusive manner.

1-0 out of 5 stars kills spam, adds you to spamming list
we now know that exploits like webbugs etc are used in html to confirm "visiting a site." well in html email adding a webbug that includes your email address is a way to confirm the email address is live and valid and worse yet, that the email has been read. Spamkiller actually does this not just for the mail you kill but even for mail it filters and you never read.

IE every message with a webbug returns a message to teh spammer that your account is live and that you read spam! You can not turn off this feature in either spamkiller 5.0 or 4.0. this is incredible!

use this product and you will be added to every spammer's list, not only as a live email address, but as someone who opens their spam mail (even if you don't!)

1-0 out of 5 stars ReputationKiller
My subscription ran out on 4.0 so I went an purchased 5.0.
After installation what I learned is this: they completely redesigned and destroyed a perfectly excellent product,and it won't run smoothly unless you are running a Pentium 4 machine. As far as I'm concerned this was the only product I liked from their product line and now they've just killed it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Works If You're Willing To Be Patient
I recently downloaded the 30 day trial from McAfee for SpamKiller. I had a few minor problems in the beginning getting my email list set up so I wasn't filtering out family and friends. After reading the online help and following the directions (I use XP and full blown Outlook) I was able to filter out spam quite effectively. I have had no problems with the SpamKiller locking up my system or keeping me from getting email. I can understand the frustrations some previous posters have had but I have not had any major problems.

I would recommend this product for most people but please remember you may need to be patient when installing and setting it up for the first time

1-0 out of 5 stars Flat out doesn't work
It doesn't support Secure Sockets Layer, which is required for my ISP. They don't tell you that before buying. I wasted hours, working this out for myself, contacting tech support, and after I explained to them what the problem was, they found it in their knowledge base. "Based on the information you gave us the problem is that SpamKiller doesn't support SSL. Is there anything I can help you with?" "Yeah, how about a refund?" Nope, that is a different department. So, non-functional product (with my ISP, at least.) And they weren't very appologetic, or quick with the refund. And the address that the tech gave me for sending feedback doesn't function either. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Wash and bleach away real good!!!!!!!!!
Brought this program because the reviews said it was a great product; so you think. BEWARE!!!! This software worked well, and too well, a matter a fact. It cleans the folders it's suppose to, and did a great job as far as freeing up hard drive space. That bleaching feature even works great too. It really does get rid of files permanently. The only thing it did that I did like was deleting an important registry file that store all your restore data, thus which, you can't do a system restore if this file is deleted. If you configure the software porperly, you'll never have this porblem, but, as for me, I was lucky to have McAfee Office, which has Uninstaller; enabling me to restore the deleted registry file after a wash.

To sum it all up, I'm sticking with Uninstaller. It may not work as well as Window Washer, but it doesn't delete an important system and registry file needed to keep you computer running smooth. Though Uninstaller lets me clean my ststem manually and requires about an hour to do, it time well spent knowing I won't lose any important files.

5-0 out of 5 stars Window Washer washed off 362MB of junk
I had used another similar product called CyberClean for many months. I recently downloaded Window Washer and ran the thing. After a minute or so, it reported back that 362MB of disk space had been freed. I had no idea that much junk was on there; it really piles up. I have now purchased Window Washer for a permanent place on my computer; goodby CyberClean. By the way, all my other programs still work.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT Program!!
I first got the trial version from my uncle (he brought it over on a floppy) I installed it and washed windows for the very first time! It cleaned up over 200mega-bytes of space. Just yesterday i washed windows and voila i got a ton of space! This is a great program, and Amazon.com has a very cheap price.[...]because not only is Amazon a trust worthy site, but they're reliable to get your product here in good timing! So if you buy this GREAT product, be sure to get it @ AMAZON.COM!!

When I ordered this product before Thanksgiving, your description indicated Apple compatibility. I am glad to see that you've changed your blurb because it was incorrect. It does NOT work for Apple products. (I called Webroot to verify.) We Mac users need Macwasher.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great antivirus...
My experience with antivirus software is, let's say, diverse. I have tried from Norton to McAfee and even the freebie Avast! and I can say the best one I've seen so far is this little engine that could from Spain. Norton is a resource hog, it drains away so much RAM it makes your computer useless. Compared to that, Panda uses few RAM and your system does not sacrifice much resources. Titanium was designed to be as simple as it can be for the regular user, and it is marvelous on that department. You won't get caught up in undecipherable computer mumbo jumbo.. in plain and simple English (or Spanish, your choice) you'll be able to scan your systemn and see how it vulnerable it is to online threats. Its update system is the best and most comprehensive out there, and it sends DAILY files with new virus information to systems, compared to the bi-weekly or when-the-latest-major-crisis-comes-out updates from Norton. Give it a try and you won't be sorry.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best antivirus I've ever used.
I've been using Norton for many years, thinking since it was the most popular it was the best. But it isn't, actually, its one of the worst. So I spent much time researching various antiviruses and tried quite a few, including McAfee, Kaspersky, NOD32, Trend Micro Internet Security and Panda. Trend Micro's antivirus is also very good, especially with the bundled firewall and some other extra features.
I had tried Panda awhile back but it crashed my system so I made up my mind to never use it again. But this was a different system, OS and antivirus version, so after noticing a few good reviews I just decided to try it.
Pros
1)Consumes very little system resources compared to other progs, especially when scanning.
2)Very good scan speed, much faster than any other I've tried.
3)Actually detects AND disinfects the viruses it finds.
4)Easy to use.
5)Nice user interface.
6)Scans for various other infections such as hackertools and jokes.

Cons
Haven't found any.

I do warn you however, I've heard quite a few reports of this crashing systems and doing other unwanted things to peoples systems, so try it at your own risk. For me it worked perfectly.

1-0 out of 5 stars Serious bug
I had a very similar experience as the reviewer from Brooklyn. I went for the free version of this software, downloaded from panda's website. Immediately after rebooting my system I noticed that all the desktop icons were generic looking. And my internet explorer was missing all the bookmarks. I did a lot of digging on my hard drive and on the Internet, in the end I ran across the Brooklyn guy's review and uninstalled Panda. Lo and behold, after another reboot my system was back to normal again. I guess I got it for free so I should of known.

1-0 out of 5 stars Screwed up my IE badly
I highly recommend against Panda Antivirus. Immediately after I installed it (after getting dissatisfied with Norton Antivirus 2004 Professional) it srewed up my Internet Explorer. First, all my favorite links (hundreds of them!) disappeared without a trace. Actually, before that... I had a lot of trouble registering the product on Panda's website, and the username/password they provided me did not work at all. Back to IE... All my favorites were gone! And I could not add any more links. Apparently Panda changed some registry settings for IE that would not allow me to change any settings in IE. If I went into options and tried to change settings, IE would just crash. Also my Internet setting on my Windows XP Home system was reset by Panda. This is absolutely the worst piece of software I've used.

Upon uninstalling it I rebooted and everything went back to normal. I ran McAfee's online virus scan tool to make sure my system was sound.

Definitely stay away! I do not recommend Norton, either. McAfee seems the best bet right now, even though I didn't like their older versions, but at least the 2004 McAfee seems okay so far.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product and Regular Updates
This is really great antivirus software. I switched to this after Norton let the W32.Blaster worm into my system. Nortons automated updates...maybe a couple times a week..at best were to slow to help me. Panda updates at least daily and often several times as new definitions are defined. It also does not slow down the system as much as Norton did. Norton needes to redesign their software as they cannot compete with this great antivirus software. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

If you find yourself deleting most of the e-mails in your inbox without even reading them, iHateSpam may just be the program you need. Available for users of Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express, this utility is great for personal users, but may not always be appropriate for business use.

iHateSpam takes only a few moments to install, but the setup process can be somewhat time-consuming. After installation, iHateSpam mines your Outlook contacts and any folders you choose to look for e-mail addresses you do not consider to be spam. It then creates a "friends" list so all the e-mails you do want to receive will be left untouched by the program. Conversely, iHateSpam also has an "enemies" list to which you can add unwanted e-mails that you receive and the sending addresses will be blocked by iHateSpam. You can also bounce an e-mail back to the sender, which includes a message saying that your addresses is unavailable, thus tricking the sender into deleting your e-mail address from their database.

While all of these features seem attractive in theory, we found that the program has some drawbacks in actual use. First, the setup process becomes redundant for the person who uses Outlook for business purposes. It is extremely difficult and time-consuming to manage a friends list when you receive and send e-mails to hundreds of coworkers and associates. Further, creating an enemies list becomes a delicate process as you do not want to inadvertently have a new customer or contact be labeled as an enemy, even though you have not received e-mail from them before.

All in all, iHateSpam would most likely work very well for someone who uses Outlook for personal e-mails only and who is merely trying to get rid of the junk so they can keep in touch with their friends and family. But for anyone who is already managing a wide database of contacts, it creates more trouble than it removes. --Kendra Hayden ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Some comments 1 year later
I used I Hate Spam! for a year and was quite satisfied with it, and it's a very good spam filter program. I wrote a very positive review some months ago for it, and it has certainly served me well. It was easy to configure and although I was only using it with Outlook Express, which doesn't have all the filter options compared to Outlook, it was still able to catch about 80% of the spam. I had also researched the other spam filter programs before buying this one, and it had very good reviews on Amazon, compared to McAfee's Spamkiller, which I'd already bought, but hadn't opened yet. So I returned it and exchanged it for I Hate Spam!

One nice feature of the program is it allows you to "bounce" unwanted emails back to their source. This sends a return email that looks like its from the main email router that your address is invalid, which hopefully causes it to be removed from the spammer's mailing list sometimes. I don't know how effective this really is, but they're a certain amount of satisfaction in bouncing their message back to them and clogging up their mailbox with unwanted messages too.

My only problem with it is that since I only have 128 megs of RAM with XP, after some months the spam filters got so large my email ran quite slow and my hard disk started thrashing a lot. I was surprised the combination of Outlook and I Hate Spam! had gotten that memory intensive, but the spam filters update regularly from the web, and after a while the filter database gets quite big, and every email gets compared against it, which takes some time.

Anyway, over the last several years my spam load has probably increased 10 times, to the point where I'm getting 10 times as much spam as actual email. That plus the memory issues I was experiencing meant my email downloads were taking a long time even though I only get 2-3 emails a day, and I was getting 20-30 spam messages. That's not much compared to several people I know who get 100 spam emails a day, but still, I finally decided to bite the bullet and change my email account name. You can usually do this through the webmail interface for your ISP. Mine is Earthlink, so I went to their Account Maintenance page, selected eMail, and went through the steps to change my email address. Now I get zero spam and no more viruses either, which were getting more and more frequent, since I'd gotten on probably dozens of spammer mailing lists. Recently I got on the ones for Viagra and was getting lots of those. Then I started getting the ones for penis enlargement products, which I suppose was only inevitable after getting on the Viagra lists. Oh well, that's modern life for you.

Anyway, it was at that point that I decided to change my email name. For some people this isn't practical for professional reasons or business reasons, but I'm retired so although I have about 100 correspondents, it's no big deal. I sent out a message to my entire distribution list that my email name was changing after four or five years, and to make a note of it. Of course, 3/4 of those people won't do that and will fail to put the new name in their address book, but oh well. Anyway, I recommend you do this too if you possibly can. At this point I don't even need I Hate Spam!, but I still run it anyway since it's so much faster now.

One last word of caution. I got all that spam because when I first got online about 5 years ago I not too wisely signed up at various webpages for various online information services such as electronic magazines, or information updates on various subjects I was interested in, and other free stuff, and after awhile, everybody and anybody had my email address. So be careful what you sign up for. Otherwise you'll have more email than you know what to do with.

Another way this happens is if someone you know gets one of those Outlook email viruses that sends emails out to everybody in your address book. Now you'll be getting emails forever with that virus in it since you'll be on the list of people to email. This is one reason why it's important to have an anti-virus program too in addition to a spamkiller.

Overall, a fine program, although if you take my recommendation to change your email name, you probably won't need a spam filter. :-)

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Anti-Spam Program I have ever used
This is the best Anti-Spam program I have ever used. The McAfee SpamKiller ... It blocked out all the emails I wanted and was a pain to use. iHateSpam is easy to use, and it learns quickly on what you do and don't want. It even has an easy to use getting started section where you can add people to your Friends List and your Enemies List. If something gets blocked out, simply tell the program that it is not spam and you won't have to worry about it ever again. This program also has cool features which other programs do not have. One of those features is the "Bounce". That sends back an email to the sender saying that your email address does not exist. This could take you off of thier spam list! The other feature, is the "Report" That reports the sender to thier ISP, this does not always work as sometimes it is impossible to find this out. Overall an excellent program. I give it 5 out of 5 stars. It is well worth the ... price tag. You can get it for FREE now after rebates, that is a great deal. That is what I did. Do not be mislead by estimated shipping dates. It was estimated that I would get mine June 5th through June 26th. I got mine on May 13th!

1-0 out of 5 stars Only catches half the spam
This software only catches half the spam I get. When it misses emails with text such as "Banned government CD" I have to wonder if they guys are updating their software at all.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best One Yet!
As a small business owner, my inbox used to receive a constent flow of Spam, that is until I installed "I HATE SPAM".
I have tried other products before, but this one is easy to use, and does actually work.

1-0 out of 5 stars I Despise I Hate Spam!
I bought and installed I Hate Spam on Outlook Express. In spite of careful setting of filters, it continues to place good mail in 'Deleted' and put garbage in my 'Inbox'. But, that is not the worst of it!! I have uninstalled it from my computer and it CONTINUES to interfere with my email and delete my good mail. I CAN'T GET RID OF IT!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Unnecessary
Sure, you can buy this software, but the question is, "Why would you want to?" There has not yet been a single Mac OS X virus in the wild. If you're a security nut who's concerned about a possible future virus, go buy it, but buyer beware. The only reason you would need antivirus software for your Mac would be if you were running Virtual PC for Windows, but even then, you would want a Windows version, and there is no possibility that viruses could transfer from the Virtual PC to your Mac because the Mac cannot understand the language these viruses are programmed in.

4-0 out of 5 stars GameDrive Works very well for me
_
I'm using it with the following games:
DungeonSiege, BF1942, BF1942-RTR, and Real FlightG2.
It is my understanding that all of these titles are copy protected.

There IS a list of supported games.

If you've installed a Game from the "real" CD drive, then there are a few options for getting the game to find the new VCD.

1)- The setting could be in an ".ini" or ".cfg" file in the program directory.

2)- It might be in the Windows Registry. (HKLM/Software/gamename)

3)- You can install the game from the Game Drive Image and it will then point to the correct drive letter.

4)- Juggle drive letters around so that the new Virtual drive letter replaces the real/pre-existing drive.

DOWNSIDE(s):
1) The amount of Hard Drive drive space taken up by the images, even with compression, can really add up. (but HD's are getting really inexpensive)

2) Protected disks can take a long time to build the image.

3) There is a subscripton involved for the updates. I've got an expiration date listed in the status bar of GameDrive, but I have been unable to find out what the renewal is going to cost me, and whether it is only for the Live Update feature.

Strange that they convienently forget to mention the subscription prior to purchase isn't it?

Overall I'm satisfied with the product.

2-0 out of 5 stars No Upgrade Options (VirtualDrive/GameDrive)
This is a review of Farstone's VirtualDrive (identical to Farstone's GameDrive). I have two key complaints about this product.

First, the company doesn't offer any reasonable upgrade options. I purchased version 7 almost exactly five months ago and the only option available to upgrade to version 8 is to purchase the product again at full price.

Second, the product is not compatible with the copy protection used with the Hoyle 2004 games. Farstone says they're working on a fix, which will be available using Live Update. Of course, the version I have doesn't support Live Update - I'll need to upgrade to version 8 to get this feature (see paragraph above).

On the plus side, this product does work with SimCity 3000, Crazy Taxi, Warcraft BNE, and older Hoyle games. However, the problems above pretty much kill this product as far as I'm concerned. I'll look for an alternative product instead of purchasing version 8.

1-0 out of 5 stars gamedrive8 a disappointment
i spent $30 for gamedrive 8.0 (farstone). i wish i could take it back. it messed up my desktop, the quick-launch toolbar had a black background, and all the icons shifted to the right, over by the clock, instead of being near the start button. also the bar accross the top of the favorites folder turned black. i tried installing it on another computer and got the same results, so i know it wasn't the computer. i tried reinstalling video drivers, changing desktop color schemes, nothing would fix the problem until i reinstalled internet explorer. that got rid of the black background, but the icons are still over to the right. i reinstalled internet explorer on the other computer, and got the same results, no more black background but icons still to the right. i tried reinstalling gamedrive8, and sure enough, the problem was back. i had to reinstall explorer again to fix it. beyond that, i've only been able to get it to work with one old game, need for speed 3. i couldn't get it to work with railroad tycoon 3, or max payne. i think i'll try http://www.alcohol-software.com/ next time as suggested by someone else in this forum.

1-0 out of 5 stars GameDrive 8 by FarStone
Since I travel quite a lot, I purchased GameDrive8 to avoid the burden and risk of carrying a dozen+ CDs. I consider myself a savvy computer user---Ph.D. in engineering from MIT---still, after reading the manual and online information, I finally gave up getting this program to run. There is no product support for GameDrive: all of my 14 emails were answered by the same form response. What a joke! Please save yourself the frustration and $35, and try Alcohol 52%. It has done everything I needed it to do, easily and flawlessly.

I returned mine. Customer support was awful. There was the endless loop of the automated voice mail and the passing through 6-7 different persons who were supposedly able to help, but kept passing me to the "right" technical support.

4-0 out of 5 stars Useful
I use this most every day on my Palm Vx. It's relaced my old paperback dictionary that finally fell apart (after 20 years). It's slightly clunky at times, but more useful than not. I particularly like how the software saves the list of words you've looked up, since I like to reference back to them occassionally. Also, the software makes it easy to highlight and look up other words within definitions--most helpful. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Great Content but Beware Copy Protection and Support
CONTENT - 5 STARS

The Wine Enthusiast's PDA Guide 2004 Edition is an incredibly useful program and very appropriate for a PDA. If you are new to wines, it will guide you through the learning process and help you avoid disappointing purchases. If you like to explore new vintners and new vintages, it's a great tool to take with you when shopping at the local wine merchant. And if you're out at dinner and you're overwhelmed by the wine list, this is exactly what you need to cut through the clutter and pick the perfect beverage.

The reviews are numerous (over 10,000), but brief and to the point. It will easily group wines by variety, price, rating, style and region. You can even use it to maintain your personal tasting notes and cellar inventory.

TECHNICAL - 2 STARS

The Guide has some nice technical features. You can beam information to other PDA users and even store the program on a removable memory card. But because of the small memory footprint it occupies, you may not have to take advantage of that feature. The installation is straightforward.

HOWEVER, the poorly designed copy protection scheme can be a real problem. And unfortunately, the documentation is silent on this. When you install the program from the CD or purchase an activation code after downloading the Guide from LandWare, the program links the Guide, the activation code and the owner's name as listed on your PDA. This is not a problem unless you modify the PDA owner's name. In my case I simply added my middle initial. Any change, even in case, will invalidate the install and cause the program to deny entrance and ask you to purchase a new license. So rather than linking the copy protection to a serial number on the CPU or some other element of the PDA hardware, LandWare chose to link it to a user-changeable field and didn't bother to warn you not to change that field. This is very poor design, not something a technologist would have created. Maybe marketing designed it?

SUPPORT - 0 STARS

I contacted LandWare for assistance and was told the following:

1) The software is licensed to a specific user for one PDA. Aside from the fact this is contrary to their license agreement (installation on one PDA at a time and create one backup copy), my Axim 3i, like most PDAs, is not multi-user capable unless you count handing it from person to person.

2) Initially, they were unwilling to help me because I had not sent in my warranty card. The fact that one had not been included in the sealed CD case I received from Amazon and that there is no way to register online did not seem to matter.

3) Because I had purchased the Guide from a third party (Amazon), and not downloaded it from their site, I would have to fax them a Xerox of my CD and the authorization number before they would try to help me gain access to the Guide and the data I had already entered, even though I had the authorization number and CD I had originally used to install.

4) I suggested in a very nice way that I understood why they had copy protection and that for future releases perhaps they should consider linking the copy protection to something inside the PDA like a serial number or configuration that doesn't change. And if that was not workable, that they at least warn people not to modify the username field on their PDA. I received a curt response that I can best characterize as "Shut up and sit down. We own it and this is the way we do it."

In the end I did a hard reset and reloaded my applications to get the Guide to properly reinstall. And of course I lost all of my tasting comments and cellar data from the Guide.

BOTTOM LINE AVERAGE - 2 STARS

It's great content, but LandWare stumbles on poorly designed copy protection and weak support. The Wine Enthusiast is a great magazine and I am very excited to see them produce this product. I just wish that had chosen someone else to produce and support it.

Amazon.com Review

We all know the Internet is coated with so much smut that itmakes Larry Flynt look almost virginal. In reality, the majority of thenastiness online is buried deeper than it used to be. But if you havekids and they have access to the Net, it's still a good idea to takesome precautionary steps, and one of the most important is usingblocking software such as Net Nanny. Version 4.0 of this program offersan easier interface than previous versions, and, as with previousiterations, it lets users view and edit its questionable sites list.

This affordable program keeps tabs on what comes into your system fromthe at-large Web, filtering out pornographic sites and images as wellas questionable words in chatrooms and newsgroups, hate literature, andeven bomb recipes. It's not a catchall solution--even with the moststringent of settings, some PG-13 and above material trickled through.And it doesn't take the place of parental guidance and education. Butit's a well-designed program that makes it easy for parents to keeptabs on the online activities of their children, in addition toprotecting personal information and limiting users' online time. Itsthick manual walks parents through the steps for configuring thesoftware and also offers a Safe Family Contract, encouraging parents totalk to their kids about why they're using Net Nanny.

Net Nanny 4.0 installs easily and begins running automatically after asystem reboot. The administrator sets up accounts (up to 12) for eachfamily member with a specific login name and password, and can easilychoose the filtering settings for each user, as well as scheduling thedays and times that each user is allowed online. Sites can be blockedfor individual users, or alternatively the administrator can create alist of only the sites he or she wants individual users to visit.

Net Nanny can be set to automatically update its database of filteredWeb sites (the list of blocked sites and phrases also makes niceshock-value reading), so as new sites are added to the list, the software iskept up to date. The administrator can also check out the log file,which tracks the sites, newsgroups, and chatrooms that users visit, andlogs information sent and received. The admin password is required todeactivate Net Nanny, view the log file, affect any changes to otherusers' settings, and even to uninstall the software.

While no filtering software is perfect--like other filtering software,Net Nanny sometimes blocks out the good with the bad, such as artisticsites--it's a flexible program that lets an administrator create uniquesets of online user rules with an easy-to-use interface. --J.Curtis ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Scheduling function not exactly foolproof.
Scheduling function not exactly foolproof.

I've experienced a variety of small issues using Net Nanny thus far (inability to use Norton Antivirus auto-updates, Win98 auto-updates, Outlook express issues, etc.) but I have to say the worst is the scheduling function.

We purchased NetNanny in part because of it's claimed ability to regulate access times to the internet via a scheduling function. This function allows you to set a schedule of time specific users can have access to the internet. The function works great. However we quickly noticed that simply changing the PC's time (via the clock on the taskbar) will bypass this feature. This renders this feature useless. I don't know of a child over the age of 8 that doesn't know how to change the PC's time.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this!
Be warned: this product does not work with current versions of Netscape; the Company claims to have a fix, but aren't advertising it and won't send the patch out unless you go through a 20 or so step set of instructions involving your "FTP client" in the DOS function of your computer to get a download. Not what I was hoping to do. In any case, on principle I wouldn't buy from this type of company.

Although my software promised 30 days of free telephone technical support, they discontinued that without telling anyone in May.

On IE, the software works ok, although it's clunky. I haven't decided whether even to continue to use it if I could get them to send me the patch. But again, there's got to be a better company and a better way.

1-0 out of 5 stars Net Nanny 4.0
I purchased Net Nanny from my local Staples Store; I installed it and discovered that it is totally useless. I t would immediately block out any page that I had set as my home page.

The problems continued when I set the user settings. Being a parent of a pre-teen I wanted to control what my child was accessing but as an adult I didn't need to be protected from myself. The program would block me from accessing sites, even though my user profile was set to not block anything.

Signing in under my child's name I was able to see nude pictures within seconds. But then it started shutting down my browser for violations, even on sites like Yahoo.com, despite the fact that I had the program set not to shut down the browser upon a violation, just to block and warn.

The last straw came when the program started calling up my dial-up networking connection when I was working on non-net related programs, such as MS Word. Over and over the connect box would come up. I tried contacting customer support; their suggestions were juvenile and did not solve any, or even address several of the problems.

The box clearly states "Customer Satisfaction Guaranteed", I have not found this to be true. Staples return policy would not allow them to return my money, just replace with the same item, which I did and tried with the same results.

Net Nanny has ignored my repeated request for a refund by not replying to any of my e-mail requests sent to any of the address on their web site.

I'm now using CyberPatrol, which seems to work as promised, as for Net Nanny, my advice is to steer clear and try Cyber Sitter or CyberPatrol.

1-0 out of 5 stars I'm sad
I'm very sad that this did not work. I heard a lot of hype about it and wasted my money. I did a simple search on google of word 'sex' , it returned me saveral pages and 3 links of sponsors, all porn sites. Needles to say I was able to browse their sponsors. I even updated the NN database, but same thing happen.

Other problem is that it is dragging the whole system down, I have cable ISP, it feels like I'm running modem connection. I did not like user name/password either. For big family that might be good, but for me I want it to work quitly in the back ground.

1-0 out of 5 stars I Can't Get It To Work
I have tried and tried to get this product to operate correctly. No matter the setting I choose, it is either too strict or too permissive. I've tried using both a self created list and the one provided by Net Nanny. I cannot get either to work right. I am very frustrated by it and have been forced to uninstall it three times in order to access my homepage (ESPN.com). If you have more patience, maybe your result will be different, but I cannot recommend this product. ... Read more
