    Simplistic thread title, great software! I've been a big fan of SPF Pro, but also have a license for Outpost. Being that I'm smack in the middle of a blizzard and bored, I installed it on my XP Pro SP2 box. This is the first version (2.5.375.4822) that I've run that didn't give me any type of snarf. I also replaced my NOD32 (again, snow and boredom) with KAV 5 Pro and removed BOClean. I'm delighted to say that OP and KAV play together very well. I won't go into the feature set here, but it's loaded with useful ones. Looks like SPF Pro will take a nice long rest.

    I've just installed this myself too, doing a 30 days evaluation at the moment.

    I worry when the installation went as smoothly and easily as this.

    It's now running in the background, and I don't even know if it's installed properly.....

    Think I should go do some leaktest.....

    Leak tests are not the only tests you need to perform. Do a shield's up test at grc.com or a pcflank.com test.
    I don like leak tests, but that's an academic discussion of the use of the test. My believe is that such tests are needed only of you allow malware to infiltrate your trusted software: if you run as admin, do a lot of p2p file sharing and so on. I don't, so I don need the ability to intercept leak tests. But as I said, itś a minor, in my opinion academic, issue.

    Then again: OP will proudly intercept what you throw at it :)
