    Tried it out briefly.. The spyware scanner still needs some work. Ran a full system scan from the GUI and it ate over 80mb ram during the process, then when it was done and I exited, it failed to release the ram, left me 80mb short. Outpost also still crashes at Windows shutdown, puts error messages in my event viewer logs here in Win2k. Old problem which still hasn't been fixed, dates back in various incarnations to 2.5 I think. Clean freshly formatted system here, no issues otherwise..

    Um .
    Since you blame OP and it crashes your system , may I ask WHY you tried it out again ? I would suggest sticking with something that works for you . OP is certainly not it . Stay with ZAP .

    I didn't say OP crashes my system, I said that OP itself crashes when I shut down Windows, an entirely different thing. OP needs work, obviously.. I am not bashing OP, just making a few observations..

    Makes no difference about bashing OP . You should as it still needs work . All I am saying is , do not use it . Does not work for you and you feel it needs work . Stay with something that works for you . If a product does what OP does on your system , you have every right to bash it . And move on to a better firewall . Very simple

    hi guys, I have to say something ;)

    Outpost pro was in my view a topnotch firewall .. I loved it, no other was placed above v 2.5 ... I stopped using it when they incorporated "antispyware" modules into it...

    it's a damn shame if you ask me cause they better moved to pg/ad like underware modules then with ms asw stuff ..

    I still have my licence though when it was left only the firewall I fell in love with .. :) so what do you say? Thanx Outpost for those wonderfull years .. sorry P2K .. ..

    I just hope they won't build Antivirus modules into it ... I suggest they become some sort of micro oven so we can eat something with it :) ... damn ..

    You COULD just disable and remove the plugins you don't want to use... :)

    Sorry, you need to give a better reason :D (j/k ;) )

    My my .
    Very strange . Why be bothered about an antispyware plugin ? SSK is correct . Disable it . Is that too difficult ? Agnitum made it that way on purpose . A shame that some people cannot grasp that concept . And Infinity . Get RID of your license . As I write this , an AV IS being developed . So , like Kerodo , let it go and stay with something you like . OP will only get worse for you . very sorry
