    Hi,

    Please note that Free WebGuard and Premium WebGuard are exactly the same. And you're right : "block suspicious I-frames" is the drive-by protection.

    I knew that. :D So it comes with both the webguard and drive-by protection?

    Yes, like in Premium versions, as drive-by protection is part of WebGuard. :)

    Hm, I didn't know that. :argh: But why are the two mentioned as two seperate modules in the comparison chart?

    One of the listed "innovations" I think I'm going to leave off:

    "The enhanced process protection will also be activated by default in case of an update to SP2 if it has not been configured before or if the dialog General > Security has been opened at least once before."

    From Help:
    "If this option is enabled, all processes of the program are protected with advanced options against unwanted termination. Advanced process protection requires considerably more computer resources than simple protection.

    "If process protection is enabled, interaction problems can occur with other software products. Disable process protection in these cases."

    Hi,

    Because WebGuard is an URL filter and AntiDrive-by an I-Frames blocker. These are based on two different technologies (but grouped in one module together to work in conjunction), that's why they are separated in the comparison chart. That's marketing too. ;)

    This is true on old PCs but on modern PCs you will see no difference. ;)

    As it is said, interaction problems can occur under special circumstances so this is not a generality.
