    I think I am liking this new Suite Beta

    Take a look at this screen shot. What is nice is that in the antispam settings, you block HTLM Forms & obscured or disguised web links.

    There is so much this apps does, no wonder it is a resource hog. not really!!
    On mY XP Pro PIII 850 with 1 gig RAM I don't really notice it all that much.

    Nother feature I love. You can connect to your Yahoo e-mail account to filter the spam. The spam filter works pretty darn good if you ask me.
    There is so many setting, I have just touched the surface.
    I laugh at the poster that said this is for noobies.
    There is a ton of rule making allowed.

    Buying separately does cost more of course.

    What I meant was, there are cheaper suites for me :)

    As I am a student I dont have too much money you see :(

    But I dont have a problem with suites - My brother uses McAfee's suite and he likes it a lot.

    I think that NIS is the best suite in relation of global protection, but it use some resources...

    Some? I wouldn't recommend it to lower end computer owners... although it seems to have lightened a little, you'll still notice it.. at least we did... it was a little like wading through a swamp I thought - not really holding us back, but not at all like tubing down a river...! ;)

    With McAfee's suite also, the system slowdown is quite noticeable, but not to the point where it gets annoying.
