    so,

    Is Geswall's uninstaller really this bad ?. Just demoed and got the expired popup,
    it locked up the system tray, would not uninstall from add/remove even in safe mode, and keeps asking me to download new version.Jeez, what a piece of junk software !!.Not the way to get me to purchase.

    NO! Just because you are having a problem doesn't mean it is junk.
    I tried it and removed it with no problems.
    Just make sure you have disabled it first.
    Also, try something like Revo uninstaller. It's free.
    Or maybe try going into Safe Mode.
    Good luck.

    I'm glad I saw this thread. I downloaded the free version yesterday from the gentle security site and got the popup that it was expired today (o_O??). It uninstalled without any problem for me, and CCleaner got rid of, I guess, what little was left over. No problems here either.

    I checked gentle security and saw that geswall has been updated. I dunno if you can install over the top of the older version. I always prefer to uninstall an older version before updating it.

    yes i had, and as a previous poster replied Revo Uninstaller is a very good solution. just ensure you utilize the "Scan After Uninstall" function, and it'll will completely uninstall Geswall for you. and btw, Geswall is anything but junk software. superbly engineered, and highly effective in protecting Windows based PC's from malware infections.

I wanted to install version 2.7.2 Freeware , but there had - " Error MSI Installer : Product GeSWall 2.7.1 Freeware -- This installation of GeSWall is expired , please download updated version from www.gentlesecurity.com " . Even a repetition mistake ...

    This is annoying, they have put an exppiry date in installer while they fail to update the installer.

    A work around is to change system time back, install GW and then correct the time again.

    Currently I'm running 2.7.1 paid with no problems. Any pressing reason to update to 2.7.2? Thanks!

    Perhaps 2.7.2 has a new expiration date?
    Any noticable differances between 2.7.1 and 2.7.2 o_O

    I got the same "geswall 2.7.1 has expired, please get the updated version" error when trying to install 2.7.2. "Fatal error" occured when trying to uninstall.

    I had to use Windows Installer Clean Up Utility to remove it. Launched geswall.2.7.2.pro.msi and was able to install, but the installation was interrupted and had to be repaired. Finally got it to install and then reboot.

    Now guess what...

    It's still v2.7.1
