    I've been trying to find this info, but so far I haven't found a thread mentioning it, unless I missed it.

    Prevx 3.0 also includes SafeOnline protection. On the other hand, SafeOnline also includes Prevx 3.0 scanning. Why both products? Prevx 3.0 installer is a bit smaller than SOL installer.

    If both, at least to my eyes, are the same o_O, why both?

    Graphics I think! And PSO concentrates more on Browser Protection then the malware removal as you need a license for most malware removal unless it's the MBR Rootkit and Adware!

    Correct :) A very sizable portion of the product is the graphics, and SafeOnline's GUI is larger than the P3 one :) They are both very similar (all of the code is shared) but SafeOnline is configured to be less intrusive to the user by showing less warnings.

    So, prettiness aside :D, and the fewer alerts, they're just about the same. It always made me wonder! Thanks! :)

    Little doubt.

    Suppose that I have SafeOnline with Prevx :D (Facebook offer) installed, but that I'd like to have instead Prevx with SafeOnline due to the prettiness of its UI. Would it be possible, as in, would it accept a SOL key and work as the SOL (Facebook version)?

    I'd like to give Prevx a run myself, but I enjoy much more Prevx UI to SOL one. It's the darker side within me that fell in love with the darker lines of Prevx UI. :D

    Just install the latest Prevx 3.0 installer on top of your SOL install and it will use your facebook license :)
