How do I tell it to install without prompting me to block/allow?
Right click, enter silent mode?
Not having to do that makes it faster and easier for us users.
Posting this for the future generation, forgive but never forget
LoL Now that is wishful thinking on Qihoo side.
Go with the flow
Besides, it's 2050, we have nothing to worry about Facebook interface looks cool tho.... And that robot thing, I can think of many applications for him/her/it
Yeah that is true.
Well ... Uhmm?
Trust me, you don't wanna know
I was thinking of asking you something, guys.
What do you think of this video:
Do you think Qihoo should make more videos like this?
Well if they add something totally new to the program then they should make an updated version. ( But it is safe to say they already know that. )
I was at first going to mention, that they could make another one for the Essential version, but that actually would not make sense I guess. They of course want to advertise for the total package with all the functions it has, while TSE is the same at its core, just without the extra possibilities. Those like me who prefer TSE will find it any way.
Well, truth be told, TS is the flagship, the main powerhorse and the top dog TSE is the little brother
Nevertheless, I'll look into it and see what I can do
I like it. It would be interesting to see what the response would be if it ever gets on television but I doubt that would happen.
As a TV advert? Where, which station? Where would it have the most impact?
Microsoft runs ads on television for Windows 10 and surface. I'm not sure where an antivirus would have the most impact, possibly on a cable show that has a lot of young viewers into tech. The same ad could be used to advertise their mobile app too.
Thanks for your suggestions. I'll look into it with marketing and finances department and see what can be done
LoL It seems that everyone but me can give a easier to understand and shorter answer then me.
This will make you feel a little bit better:
No firewall in TS, so what is the best route to follow?
Technically, there is in Toolbox. But experiment.
Choose what you like.

Personally, I use windows firewall with tweaking.com program that adds context menu
People like to merge it with Comodo Firewall, or Private Firewall, take your pick.....
That was a good movie, when he was stil famous.
I use TSE combined with Comodo Firewall, and I really like that combo. ( It should not be different with TS I guess. )
Did you mutually exclude those two programs from eachother?
And what is active in Comodo, HIPS and/or BB?
360 Total Security = antivirus or Spy Program ?
yeah, its a spy, not antivirus

@liba This has been discussed in debate few pages back. Please refer to those previous posts. If need more clarification, please let me know, thanks.
Do they really need bank account numbers and passwords?
This is gray area.
There are many paid services Q360 provides which are China only for chinese only, and are not applicable for outside usage. To simplify things, like internet shops, they store/keep buyers info to speed up things.
Qihoo 360, as a security company, is not in the business of misusing user data in any other way, except the following:
- to track program usage for statistics, like scans, cleanup, speedup and most common accessed features
- to track threats trend [in what parts of the world is which threat encountered
- what system is Q360 protecting, pc or mobile
Q360 does not, and will not, knowingly, share or abuse ANY private user information it may receive [prior to which it is encrypted], whatsoever.
In order for ANY company [be it Kaspersky, Symantec, Bitdefender, GDATA, whatever] know how many users there are enjoying their product, it has to call home, send statistics of it's usage
to research and engineering team, to help improve the product, or even diagnose and fix potential problems it might have, also have things simplified and make things go faster and more smooth.
That's why some companies want to send unknown exe's present in the system behind your back for analysis. Others, like Comodo and Qihoo, ask after the scan, to submit unknown exe, dll or script
to analyse and, if found malicious, to act before the damage is done. And it's a good thing alltogether.
This has been discussed a lot before, so I am taking the exception now to address it again.
If anyone wants to have an in-depth analysis of what happens beind the scenes while Q360 is running on your system, let me know and will do my best to provide it next week.
And I hope, that this will be put to rest. These guys contribute to Windows security by sending info about vulnerabilities. Look it up. Also to Google about Google Chrome. Look it up.
Thank you for understanding
