    Lets see....Dev really slowed down but some where it's still being worked on. If I remember correctly the last update added Windows 7. I think most people on the forum don't like Drivesentry.

    lol yep, it still annoys me now, especially when the software was decent and support too, they sucked you in to steal all the money.

    it was the biggest lifetime license ever, about 30 days. LOL

    Yeah, they turned out to be a HUGE disappointment. I remember when "Katie" was here and Drivesentry was being discussed on a daily basis. It had potential, Katie was decent about getting in here and giving support, taking questions, etc. She vamoosed, the licensing went all to hell, old conflicts (that I'm aware of) never got fully taken care of, the support forums had tumbleweeds rolling across them...shall I go on?

    I never liked their little icon. Didn't seem right for some reason.

    The funny thing is they don't give a rats *ss about consumers using the product. They focus on B to B...that's about it. Horrible company. Their product is plagued with bugs.

    Given the developer's past history, there was always a chance that this would turn out to be a scam but, despite my initial reservations, I was prepared to give DriveSentry a chance and paid the license fee in order to encourage a new security startup that was showing promising potential.

    It was disappointing to see the developer's lack of commitment to making a go of a legitimate business enterprise, preferring instead to go for a short term cash grab. The DriveSentry representative, Katie, seemed genuine though and her early departure was one of the first signs that all was not well within the company.

    Maybe leopards don't change their spots after all. :D

    Anyway, I've tried it before it was forgotten or discontinued by his developer, and I found DS slowly and too intrusive in my system, not fully stable; sometimes it freezed. May be it was promising but, at the time, it seemed more an av + a file protection sw that other.:rolleyes:

    Hogwash!! Lets face it if the Drive Sentry crew had not been slick enough
    To package "Katie" with a cute avatar,and had instead , "Angus", a huge Scott,with a beard like a rhododendron bush,as their spokesperson,most of you would have jumped ship long before you did.

    You got a cyber lap dance.

    I wan't looking for a cyber lap dance - I thought I was buying a license for a security program that showed early potential. I sometimes buy software licenses in order to support the developers, and I fail to see what that's got to do with the sex industry. o_O
