    wow another cheap lifetime license. Can you say DriveSentry. Damn, either give it away at start up, or charge a fortune like Prevx, to make you think it has to be good at that price.;)

    I'm going to trial your product because it sounds very promising!!
    I also submitted a request for the free license for active students

    Good luck developing your products

    Prevx is Good :) I don't know much about Total Protect. Has anyone tested their product? How long have they been in business? I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt. They may have potential. Only time will tell.

    No 9x/ME support? (I wonder if we old, very old OS users are becoming an overlooked majority. You know, like the very same people who haven't updated their Norton AV in the past 5 or 6 years.)

    Element TotalProtect 2010 does in fact run on the older dos based windows family, that being the ME / 98 line, but it is not supported by Element Software.

    You can run it on that OS but you cannot expect support from us if anything goes wrong. :p

    However many components such as realtime protection, automatic pc tuneup and the firewall components do not work on 9X since they were only created for NT based operating systems.

    Hope this helps.

    It patches your windows registry and operating system in common areas that worms insert malicious code, essentially blocking any access that a virus may have to that part of the operating system, before your PC can even be effected. This is essential for xp users since they are left in the open, without Vistas god gift of UAC.

    Any changes ETP makes to your system can be reversed by using the Rescue Center feature.

    Element Software itself has been running since 2006, And sales of Element TotalProtect started in late 2008.

    I installed Element TotalProtect 2010 and set all of the options it has and then started to test it. I couldn't get it to detect anything, I might be doing something wrong but I don't think so. After trying everything I have against it and getting no alerts I deleted it and reinstalled my regular protection. I don't believe that this software is ready for prime time yet.

    I gave it a quick run on xp sp3 and here is what I didn't like.

    1.The firewall.
    a. It seems that you use the open source WIPFW, but unless I missed it you do not mention it anywere in your software. and you do not include any help document about setting the firewall rules.
    b. it does not support IPv6 Protocol

    2. The uninstall process
    Leaves behind 3 services.
