    Safe Online will keep you more safe as it's protecting you against certain threats when browsing. Otherwise, there should be no other differences.

    I have a similiar question.

    There is a Safe Online version of the Prevx and then there's an ordinary 'free' Prevx version. If I have purchased the full protection (including all modules), are there any differences except the GUI-part being branded with 'SAFE ONLINE'?

    Not true, both versions have the same protection, both include PSO.

    I think the differences are a different gui and a more streamlined installation.

    So really, no difference at all.

    Prevx need to scrap the safeonline version, I just don't see the point of it all.

    Yeah, that was my assumption as well. If you've purchased Prevx, it won't matter if you have Safe Online-version or ordinary version. It's still the same protection but with a different GUI.

    But when it comes to the free versions, the Facebook-edition Prevx does offer extended protection against online threats than free, ordinary Prevx. However, as PC_Gamer stated, there really is not difference in the free versions, unless you have the FB-edition.

    The Facebook edition offers PSO for free but prevx is still the free version with full detection capabilities but limited removal.

    The standard free version from the website gives limited PSO and limited removal but still offering full detection.

    The gui is really only the main change between the safeonline version and the prevx 3.0 version, so I say scrap the safeonline version completely!

    Hope that answers everyones questions. :)

    This is possible, but the safe online is bigger as prevx, and why is prevx scanning about 28000 files and safeonline about 16000 ?

    The SafeOnline's versions graphics are what take up the additional space :) (most of the space in the software is graphics, strangely enough). Scan counts are highly dynamic so uninstalling/reinstalling could indeed change the scan counts.

    The reason why we have the separate SafeOnline version is for the banks which use SafeOnline for their customers - it provides a much cleaner user experience by making the install process extremely simplistic and suppressing some of the warning messages unless the user really needs to see them. However, you are correct in that the code is 100% identical between the two products :)
