A couple of weeks ago I frequently received an invitation for the Spy Sweeper 5.8 BETA (currently at 5.7.x). I haven't received an invitation for quite some time, it no longer appears when I manually update the program. I know that the Spy Sweeper isn't very popular here, but it has some very nice features. So, that beta has been going on for quite a while. I've read NOTHING about it. It's good that they take their time, I don't want another Pctools experience. Has anyone read something about this new version ? Any idea when it will be out ? (For me, dropping the Spy Sweeper is not an option, since it doesn't cause performance or other problems, and I have a license that lasts well into 2009) I actually think they should be at version 6 by now, as long as they don't follow Pctools' lead. They probably got too caught up in the antivirus and firewall business. And they are forking in cash with their auto-renewal policy and by understaffing their technical support. If they continue to follow this short-term quarterly earnings approach (I presume their CEO gets a big bonus ) , without investing in real product improvements, they will one day be left behind, and cease to be a major player in the antispyware industry.
