    Reviewing 5.0.2-102096 (Aug 16, 2015)

    Huge fan of VB. Been using it for years. Upgraded recently to Win10 and talk about headaches. Even the current version of VB (10.0.2) has issues so did what was recommended and stuck with the beta (5.0.1r102010) and it's pretty stable (VB doesn't crash Win10 anymore after waking Win10 from Hibernation or sleep; sound now works in guests as well which is cool too). I'll wait until the official release of one that states it's Win10 compatible before installling it. Still giving VB 5 stars; well deserved. Just grateful for the fixes that the VB team (and M$ too for that matter) has done to fix the issues that at least works for me now. :)

    Reviewing RC2 (Jul 2, 2015)

    Would be nice if they would fix the "known 3rd party issues" already.

    Would love to be able to use again. Not giving up my Comodo and I need network bridging.

    So this version gets a 0. Recommand old buids of you run any sort of security app.
