Despite it not being able to block "All" pop-ups and pop-unders, I have faith that eventually they will be blocked. Since it is not 'billed' as a "popup blocker" and that is just ONE of its MANY FEATURES, I will continue to give it a five. I would love to see this block pop-unders as well as the authors finding any type of pop-up not blocked..and block those too.

What is the point? Have you not heard of "Favorites" already built into IE or the "Tools, Windows Update" choice in the menu for updating? "With just a few clicks" Isnt getting to anything on your computer already as easy as a few clicks without bloating up applications with third party crap to do what can already be done? I havnt tried it but wont bother from its description as it offers NOTHING windows doesnt already offer apparently.

Finally a Mcafee product I can live with. Its free (like the good old days), doesnt put any files/registry info into my PC and actually found something it thought was a virus, maybe it was, maybe it wasnt..Lack of a log file, lack of "user choice" upon detection is a big disappointment however. Sadly Mcafee's standard line of products have NEVER worked without screwing up my pc and my family's pcs, so I will stick with Norton, but I do applaude their attempt to give something back to the community without asking for money in return, keep THAT up Mcafee and you might win back some customers in the future.

Using the Messenger port is a BAD idea because people spam it and you leave no control as to whats coming in if its on. The only way I can see using that is if your enabling it ONLY while getting updates and it turns itself back off if that was its previous state. Noone wants to be spammed by ads with messenger service on!

Supports Only 1 IM Service/account in the Free version.
If you enable displaying Notice of encrypted/unencrypted, it shows html code spam before EVERY message (as a message!) in Trillian coming in or out (depending on settings). Talk about useless annoying horrid spam, this is it. It really bothers me that a company whos supposed to make software to protect you has to start splitting it up into various things to protect instead of keeping it true and consider ALL incoming/outgoing data a threat on from ANY part of your OS/Applications. Whats next, a license for how much data your firewall allows in or stops? Geez. If you make a firewall just include this IM stuff, dont ZoneLabbs have ENOUGH money already?
