    I love Prevx 3.0 but now having used SafeOnline I just dont see what I get over something like KeyScrambler. I still say, respectfully, that a Sanbox incorporated into Prevx would have been a killer product, instead of my internet connection getting cut in half.

    Yes that would be a great addition but give it time this is the first release of SafeOnline for 64 bits work with them to get that fixed because I don't have that problem with the 32bit version!

    I saw your post in the other thread about your internet speed and am honestly unsure why that would happen :doubt: However, SafeOnline provides -much- more functionality than just KeyScrambler. For a high-level overview, you may want to read the Immunity review of SafeOnline: http://info.prevx.com/download.asp?GRAB=IMMUNITY or look through the help file which describes some of the other protection: http://info.prevx.com/safehelp.asp - click on Add Protection/Website Protected and then Security Configuration.

    Also, to further debug the internet connection issues, could you send a scan log to report@prevxresearch.com? Hopefully we'll be able to solve it with just whitelisting the browser components.

    Thanks! :)

    My testing confirmed that SafeOnline caused a substantial loss in Internet speed under Windows 7 Pro (x86) using IE8 and Google Chrome.

    Without SafeOnline: ~30 Mbps

    With SafeOnline: 20-24 Mbps

    I said this 2 weeks ago, but no one would see it. I was not going to spend time bantering back and forth with Joe on this issue. SafeOnline is basically a marketing hype and a piece of crap.

    Could you let me know what other security software you're using, trjam/Lyondellic? It is possible that SafeOnline's internet filtering is clashing with another AV's filter (we had to make a workaround with ESET because of a similar issue).

    :rolleyes:

    I am not seeing the issue across any of my computers I have tried it on Windows 7, XP, and Vista All 64bit and 32bit flavors. I'm unable to reproduce the issue your having ether. It's got to be a conflict somewhere. Now I'm not saying your not having the issue bro but coming in here and saying its a piece of crap is just wrong. All software has issues sometimes with software of the same type we just need to figure out what that problem is. ;)

    It really is to easy for people to get mad at something just because it don't work correctly for them and they don't take the time to find out why. :doubt:
