    Tried it for a while. No right-click scan was the deal breaker for me. Otherwise, it seemed to work well. Not sure about the Hotmail issue or any website filtering.

    LOL. A deal-breaker o_O You're joking, right?
    Why do you need that feature so bad? Please don't tell me here that you manually scan every downloaded file...
    (Personally, I find that feature useless. Opinions vary)

    BTW, I can download only 30-days trial of this stuff...:(

    Actually it does work with hotmal addresses, i recieved an email this morning, it just took longer for some reason. So far everything has been running fine, it does consume a fair amount of resources, around 80mb of ram on my system. There is also some noticeable slowdown during bootup and regular activities.

    Don't think it works with Vista (at least for me).
