    Do/did you use this program and have you buy it.
    And if you say no, why did you say that?

    I doubt we'll see anyone select, "No, I find it a bad application".
    I love this program and agree with Gullible Jones... I ought to buy a license. But in all honesty, I wish it was a lifetime license and not a yearly one.
    Or maybe if the license renewal was cheap.
    If I ever get infected, I may purchase at that time.

    Just a simple no.
     
  7. To be honest, the free product is good enough at detecting baddies that the ability to automatically remove them is just icing on the cake. If I bought a license, it would be just to support Surfright so they can continue maintaining this awesome product.

    $17.00 at Majorgeeks seems cheap. Or is that the regular price? Personally I haven't felt a need for it yet, hense my selection. Who knows what the future holds.

    I like to purchase lifetime licenses whenever possible, and that way I can afford a few here and there that require renewal fees. When you think about it, you're right, $17 isn't that much. It's the accumulation of software renewal fees that can run into serious money. I try to keep that in check, is all I'm saying.

    No. Never used it, because I didn't like it in the past (don't know why). My answer isn't there so I didn't vote.

    I wouldn't be without it. The best second-opinion scanner out there!

    Used to use it regularly but couldn't get the cash to purchase a license, so uninstalled it a long time ago. :D
    Still, a very very good software IMO!! Worth the money. :D

    these days i very rarely use AV programs.

    but i keep HMP on hand to scan the odd download.
    i also use VirusTotal or Jotti for another opinion.

    Even if you cant afford to buy HMP after its thirty day trial you can still use it for another opinion scanner minus the cleaning ability.I never clean anyways once a scanner says I have a nastie on board and I am sure its not a false positive,I then I replace a Image. However the only time I had to replace a image in the last 4 years is from crap software that borked my OS,which in my book is worse then most malware.

    I rather have quality malware that runs good on my OS the legit crapware that run poorly.:D

    I must've been the only person to choose "No, I find it a bad application" as my vote increased it to an astounding one. I've only used it once a very long time ago when it was first released. It was like the False Positive scanning engine. How many false positives can it find in a clean system? That was the question I was asking when I ran it. That being said I haven't touched it in a long time, I don't need it nowadays anyways so I have no real plans to try it and besides I'm paying enough for security as it is.

    Here, it still gives the occasional false positive (which I sometimes report to multiple vendors to be sure).

    It's a great program. But while I trust in its detection capabilities, I wouldn't trust in its cleaning capabilities..
