10.0.0.561 (Apr 3, 2010)
OMFG... I'm a big fan of Avira, but version 10 is a complete abortion. It's painfully obvious that they rushed it through beta testing. There are scores and scores of users who were automatically updated to this crap version and now have slow systems, shell crashes, scans that don't work, updates that don't work, web sites that don't load properly, BSODs, inexplicable errors, program crashes, and on and on and on and on... Oh geez am I talking about the Premium version? I guess I am, but the Personal version also sucks for similar reasons.

It's a nice and handy utility, but the former shareware price was just nuts. As freeware, it's worth using.
1.6.1 (Mar 24, 2010)
Killing the program? Oh no, so the author will no longer be able to develop and support it for free. How terrible!
Panning software because of its free/pay status is idiotic beyond belief.
I'm giving it a 3 because it still has no queue feature.

The advice to use a Firefox extension instead of WsW is akin to the advice to use AdBlock Plus instead of Ad Muncher. Both recommendations ignore the fact that not everyone uses Firefox, and that both extensions don't do (nearly) everything the other software does. WsW does a lot more than simply check websites for changes. WsW does not take up much space. If having lots of features makes it "bloatware", then sure, it's bloatware. Whatever.

I assume you are referring to me by "DB", anomoly. I don't understand why, and I don't care. Keep up the ad-hominem nonsense, though, and find out how long it takes to get your account closed.
There is nothing wrong with my previous review. Disliking an interface and ease-of-use is a perfectly valid reason for forming an opinion. Like catchpole, you'll just have to deal with it.
And yes, I did try TagScanner.
P.S. anomoly, try switching to decaf.
P.P.S. Take that show on the road, catchpole. Hilarious stuff, poorboy. Don't worry; some day you'll get a job and you won't have to rate purely on cost. :)

So... It wasn't MS's fault, but because some idiots claimed it was, they now have to go above and beyond to fix the problem? If that's the case then MS should do that for EVERY problem caused by Windows-based malware. Obvious nonsense.
MS offers free security software (Microsoft Security Essentials) which can stop and/or remove this malware. Seems to me that MS has already done enough to fix this problem. Or should they take out a full-page ad in the New York Times as well? Superbowl commercial?
Lame, lame article.
