    See the release date and look at the development in past months.

    Threatfire was last updated around February 2011, as per AChen on the PC Tools Forums

    The program has had two updates as of this year, so I won't call it just dead yet, not to mention that their forum is still quite alive.

    Put it this way - everyone that has taken my advice to remove it has thanked me later when they realised what a drain it had been on performance.

    When I'm cleaning a computer and Threatfire is present, uninstalling it is usually the change that makes the biggest difference.

    Don't get me wrong, I was a big proponent of it once.

    It may not be dead per say, but its been dead to a lot of wilders memebers including my self.If I remember correctly it has created some issues in the past. I think one issue rendered a useless keyboard, but not exactly sure though.

    That is correct I remember reading about that on the PC Tools forums.

    On an older machine of mine I have TF 4.1 installed and that was the last version I used of it. I have not used this slightly broken machine in a while but as it was working with it on it I did not find TF slowing it down that much. It works smoothly 99% of the time the only time I had an issue was when it was installed with SpywareBlaster 4.1 and that issue would have been fixed if I updated TF which I never did.
