    It's been a while since I used it. At the time the GUI was primitive. It felt like using a Windows 98 application. Unless it's been updated I wouldn't bother with it.

    I agree.
    Another negative was the suite was eating 100k of memory then.
    IMO there was no reason for this.

    Since this was a while ago you might want to give it a try.
    Alot could have changed in the interm.
    Just make a backup first. :)

    I heard it was difficult to remove all of the components if you decided to uninstall it.

    I do get the fever/flu of trying new security applications, but over time it does slow down the machine. I have been using Antivir Premium the past couple of years with Online Armor. I really haven't had any problems with that combo.

    I had to reinstall Vista on my laptop when I tried Blink. That bugger left quite a few registry and files stuck on my drive. No matter what I did I wasn't able to put them in my recycle bin. I'm sure Anti-virus 360 wouldn't remove it either! :D
