    thats a nice review you have done . I loaded it up and fortunately did not have any issues . I agree that the free version is lacking in information as to just what the problems are . Also a full version for a month trial would be good . I think I would trust firetrust more than the ie7 version , however thats just my own feeling. I would not consider paying though for the full version of this .

    Dear Twig, thanks and I agree with what you say about Firetrust, sitehound and IE7.
    After trying the various toolbars, I went back and tried Fraudeliminator again to see if I could sort out the browser freezing problem. Since doing a clean re-install it seems to be working better than before and so far no probs. The 'buynow' popups seemed to have settled down too and not too much of a problem, I would advise you trying FE if Sitehound isnt for you.
    regards Gordon
