1.05.0.1001 Beta (Apr 15, 2013)
On a supposedly "clean" system with Malwarebytes and Kaspersky Internet Security already installed...it found over 2800 malware files...all labeled "Trojan.Downloader.Ed".
Even "clean" motherboard utilities like the ASUS AI suite are marked for "cleaning".
Definitely not ready for prime time...
2.0.1 (Nov 13, 2012)
This is $10...not free. Have to take the freeware labels with a grain of salt these days.
Worth it if you buy the Stardock packages all together but not on it's own...
Neat product though...might pay $4 tops (lifetime updates).
7.0 (Nov 1, 2012)
Definitely something broken...web installer seems to run OK...but GE freezes on startup. Tried 3 times.
Default D/L is 7.0 beta now...but Google calls everything Beta.
Back to 6.2 I guess.
22.0.1229.8 Dev (Aug 17, 2012)
Now that Chrome has switched to web-installers and autoupdate...all these installers are the same file.
One version each for each channel...Dev...Beta...and Release channels.
No need to grab the latest...because the web-installer grabs it anyways.

Use WSCC to update NirSoft tools. It will also update your Sysinternal Suite dir at the same time.
Has a nice UI for both groups of utilities...marking favorite utilities...etc.
1.11.55 (Feb 4, 2009 - 12:33 PM)
Yeah...seems straightforward enough...then again I was never confused about the Vista choices.
I build my own machines and and use an OEM copy of "Ultimate".
OEM prices are about 1/2 the retail prices.

...that MS addressed the issue of portable storage and network security. Seems like most employees have MP3 players or digital cameras these days. Nice to have some control built into Windows as opposed to having to resort to third-party solutions like SecureNT or GFI's new Portable Device Control.
Interesting note about the registry key in SP2...wasn't aware of that change until reading the link...
1.11.55 (Jul 15, 2004 - 12:23 AM)
Upgraded both machines to newer NAV build. (b.71)
Install was error-free, no problems with updates.
This on XP SP2 build 2162.
Still not crazy about Symantec's recommendation to disable XP firewall.
Does this mean that Symantec's own firewall product is now redundant and unnecessary?
1.11.55 (Jul 14, 2004 - 7:46 AM)
Installed on 2 home PCs. XP SP2 b.2149
First machine, NAV would not update. "incorrect registry entry...reinstall". Took awhile to uninstall because "update was running in background". Had to reboot several times, nuking any NAV process I could find. Won't uninstall in safe mode either. Finally reinstalled, still won't do full udate due to "registry error" Registry entry it suggests to check is correct.
Second machine...C++ runtime error during install, wants to quit install. Finally choose ignore, install, reboot, and NAV is trying to Auto-Update but can't because update is running in background.
Disabled XP firewall as per NAV suggestion, drive mappings on both machines now only work sporadically.
I'll probably wipe both machines clean when SP2 goes RTM in a couple weeks. And I'll probably put NAV 2004 back on both machines.
