    Anyone try this or know any specifics of how it works (particularly the Firewall Booster)?

    I tried it when I was using TMIS '07 a few weeks ago. Pre-Startup scan is just where you can set the next bootup to scan the computer before the OS loads. Firewall Booster is supposed to use the "enhanced capabilities of Vista's FW" (whatever those are).

    I had a time uninstalling this as I had to use a third party uninstaller to get rid of it. It may have been that I had uninstalled TMIS beforehand.

    Haven't tried it. I went straight to the 2008 version. Which is running great here

    That was why I had to take those features off. When I went to install '08 it said that I had to take TMOS Protection off because of incompatibility with the beta. So if you are running the beta you couldn't use this anyway.

    I had two issues with the '08 Beta. For some reason Windows Mail wouldn't remember my login/password for both mail and news. It kept popping the window up asking for them.

    And for the life of me I can't remember what the other issue was, lol.
