    Don't forget to cancel the auto renewal when you receive your invoice.

    Would I need this program with my current set up (see sig), or would that be overkill? Thanks :D

    With Online Armor Premium and Avira you are more than good to go. To me Mamutu would be overkill...:cool:

    Online Armor Premium + Mamutu. Is there any problems when used together? Or any advantage?

    Cheers!

    I had this thing on my system for 2 hours and it was 2 hours too long. It damn near flagged everything I did as suspicious, good grief. It's probably a great program for others, for me it's a hassle, just like every HIPS and behavior blocker I've ever used. By the way, no offense meant to the Dev, but using Captcha to shut this thing down....bad, bad idea.

    No, trust me on this, this program, for whatever reason treated my system like a prime suspect in a jewelry heist. Turning that on weakens the program, which doesn't solve the issue. If I'm going to weaken security, I might as well not have any, you know what I mean? Please, don't take this as a rant against the program, it's generally well liked here, and I trust the opinions of the more well known members here. I hadn't tried this particular program out yet, and it cemented my belief that these types of programs still have a long way to go to be accepted as usable by your average person. Well, to be perfectly frank, this was by far the noisiest of these types of programs I've tried. It's simply my opinion and experience, as with everything in life, results may vary.

    It's running good together with prevx on my Vista 32bit Lappi.

    What do the other say to this combination: PrevX + Mamutu ?

    I think it is quite good so i am interessted in other opinions..

    I wonder Prevx is next on Gizmo's list. I haven't really noticed a considerable slowdown with OA and Antivir on board along with Mamutu. I did disable Windows Defender because it was just sitting pretty with nothing to do.
