Hey, sounds nice in theory.... HOWEVER...

  • Loaded it up and it's a huge RAM hog. Sucks up all available RAM to start, sucks up all available RAM when launching the 'protected browser' and when doing any changes.
  • Pages are slow to load in protected mode.
  • And provided false information (perhaps -- see screenshot)

Needless to say, it's now gone from my system for the time being.

Cheers :wave:

Well, went to uninstall this thing and it screwed with my system. It closed down the Samurize widget that I'm running and hung my system for 3 minutes.

It also for some unknown reason installed a second 'Show Desktop' button on my quick launch bar.

Was about to force a hard shutdown, but finally came back. But it did NOT uninstall (this was from the Programs List).

Finally got rid of it through the Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs.

From my point of view I'm now going to avoid this like the plague. Gets a HUGE 3 thumbs DOWN from me.

Cheers :wave:
