    I have been using it for almost 10 months and have not experienced the problems mentioned.

    Based on my experience, yes.

    I have used it for a good 4-6 months (I think) and have not encountered a single problem. I am using version 4.3, and it has absolutely no effect on my email whatsoever. I run Win98SE with Outlook Express 5.0 and Mailwasher.

    I don't know about everyone else, but since I began using Proxo and IESPYAD my spyware cleaners (Spybot and Ad-Aware) have found nothing (except usage tracks w/Spybot) on my system whatsoever.
