7.0.0 Build 3239 Beta (May 28, 2011)
Used to used this eons ago in the dark ages of dialup.
Then replaced it with a red hat linux box...RH v1...that gives you an idea of how long ago i used it
It was great in its day when it was about the only way to do what it does.
But in todays market its unfortunately and sadly irrelevant software.
A properly configured router or linux box even will do the job with far less tinkering needed on your network.
But it does what it does pretty well, so its a 3

Most negative reviews could easily be avoided if people understood how to use the program properly.
When used properly its a great and FREE program.
3.0.296 (May 17, 2011)
Been using this for god knows how long and its one of those programs i install on every PC i use.
Great free program that does what its designed to do VERY well, and thats rare.
Makes your system usable more quickly and efficiently than the default "every startup program runs at once" in windows. This is one simple function you would have thought Microsoft would have built in by now.....
Easy 5, deserves higher
5.0.5 (Apr 15, 2011)
If you like your PC, do not install this crap and its crapware/adware
Apple are famous for stealth installing things with the PC version of Safari
Use anything but this to browse the internet.
Times like these you really need a 0 at FF

Probably works just fine, but MozBackup can do a lot more, and for free
A neutral 3

if youre legal, you get the updates
if youre not your security is likely to be marginalised and theres always the chance that those without update status will simply spread nasties around themselves.
in the long run, microsoft has to look at its pricing strategy, lower and realistic pricing would ensure customer loyalty and a good base for goodwill towards them. It would be a change from we will charge what we like, we're Microsoft and theres not a damn thing you can do about it.
Locking people out of windows update who already feel (quite rightly a lot of the time) marginalised by pricing is going to do more harm than good.
Im not anti-MS or anti-Bill, he gives away billions each year for humanitarian projects, how about giving everyone a bit of a break Bill.
I have a dream that one of these days (probably not in my lifetime) MS will open source their OS code, give the clever amongst us a bit more control over our core system and further the development and stability of it and concentrate on value added software such as office etc. thats what i'd do...........
