    Jotti says it is clean

    I downloaded their free firewall

    It downloads code during install o_O , only runs when you agree to use a service called pando

    At restart my system frooze, last known good came up normally without loading firewall driver

    Removed everything with REVO uninstaller

    TF's AV scan did find any left overs

    I restored a clean image (my latest pre install), just in case

    Taggy at the least I would say :thumbd:

    Thanks Kees. I had downloaded their FW just before reading your post. Your comments saved me from installing it & enduring a major PITA. Live long & prosper.

    Why download & test? Because it's bloody fun, that's why!! Safe, too, if you...

    +Do your downloads in Sandboxie

    +Do test runs in virtual, &/or use ShadowUser, Returnil, et alia.

    +Spit 3 times over your left shoulder before each test run

    My take on this:

    1. no contact info of any kind is provided, just one email addy
    2. Domain owner details are hidden by privacy protection service

    I find those two facts quite interesting in the context of offering security software ... If you are running legit business, you have no need to hide anything!

    TH: scam sites are more difficult to detect automatically :) it usually takes a human if the software offered is not detected as fraudware/rogue.

    Just my perception of things there.
