BOClean v.4.22.002 ?
4.23 or some new version is in building?
Yes, 4.22.002 is the last version. No worries about the next version, it will be there when needed.
Those of us with older licenses may have to pay something. By the way I have no problem with paying for major version updates. Just want to be clear.
No problem on my side either to pay for a version update.I fact if it takes that for BoClean to survive, I would even be agree to pay a small yearly fee.
BOClean is a great program, and will aways be. But as the AV vendors become better, or they wither, most will go with one program based on their ability.
Several members have stated this and I have remained silent, as I have stated before my poistion on this I will state it again since it has been awhile.
That is just fine that AVs are getting better at detecting and killing malwares of all types but what if the evil is so strong it disables AV.... ....that BOClean will step in and fill the breech; BAM malware dead. Now lets go about getting the AV back to health and doing it's usual good job.
It's all about having that layered security without over doing it.
IMO, layered is and always will be the way to go. While the threats are changing some in type and attack vector, they are still real. It is the wrong time to become complacent when it comes to security. There is no one app. fits all.
Sidenote: The last time my AV stopped a bad d\l I did a Google of the identified malware. It was a very old threat. The old ones still out there in the wild (and there are many) can be just as dangerous as the newer ones to an un(der)-protected machine.
................but what if that evil is so strong that it disables BOClean!
I'm sure you know that 100% protection is impossible, right?
That's right Antarctica.
Don, BOClean typically lets AV usually now a days kill them unless that super fast update of BOClean beats them to the update of the latest round of nasty, which I hear happens a lot. So if AV gets disabled or fails BOClean can step in.
What are the chances that both would be disabled before the nasty is disabled if not out right destroyed. Aren't we talking a very rare happening where both security AV and BOClean are disabled by nasty. Come on now??
I was just messing with you a bit, you should know that by now.
I know BOClean quite well...........have had it since 2002 i think and thats why i can say that there are not a lot of superfast updates made to it during a month and no, i don't mean it's a bad product......just a wee bit overrated mainly by it users...which as i already stated include me.
What is their policy for determining when you have to pay for an upgrade?
How often does that happen?
I understand and respect your thoughts, but, the day of consumers wanting one vendor period, is upon us. Again, 95 percent of consumers will shell out big dollars for one product that they expect to keep their PC perfect. If it fails, they never go back, bad mouth the product forever, and move to the next one product. Check the "average consumer" and they would laugh at the idea of having to buy,2,3 or 4 licences a year for different products. We are not the average consumer, nor do we account for the profits this vendors rely on. The time is here, for a vendor to be able to supply protection be it, scanning, zero day threats, etc. And as of this day the only 2 that come close, are "cough" Kaspersky and Norton. Like it or not. I predict you will see the majority of single minded, or apps, vendors, perish by the sidelines as things progress.
the adverage user e.g. buys nis2007 and expects it to protect them no matter where they surf on the net and if it fails as Jeff said they will never trust them again. we know that no product is perfect and you cant protect your completely. with all these teenagers using torrents to download ilegal movies and god knows what else there is no way they wont get infected.
Not this consumer.Never will I trust my pc with one app. I beleave a layered approach is the best way to go. My current setup works great for me and no changes are planned in the near future.(except for maybe trying out OA v2 when it is released)
I agree with Travellinman! layered approach is the best way and donot rely on just 1 App!
