    OK, I am confused. Does this version contain the Safeonline component of Prevx 3. I was going to go for the 50% off deal.

    Sorry no it doesn't! It's in WSA-E or WSA-C only and now it's called Identity Shield!

    HTH,

    OK, thanks Trips. The Identity Shield name threw me off.

    Went ahead and got the deal anyways. Cant afford the higher priced ones right now. I did try it with Trusteer and notice that some of WSA's web shield won't work though.

    Somebody hinted that you can buy the discounted WSA-AV and upgrade it to WSA-E for the normal difference in cost ($20), so it's that's a $20 discount.

    OK went for the upgrade. How do you get the WSAE toolbar for the Identity Shield to come up in the browser to add websites or does it have it? (Like Safeonline)

    Ok, scratch that request. Just noticed the little padlock that happens down on the WSA icon when you are on a secure site. Like it.

    Thanks PH. This is the first I had a chance to look at Secure Anywhere. I don't get much computer time any more. If the 4 yr old aint on it the wife is. My Prevx expired so I wanted to get something simple yet effective for them. This fits the bill nicely. :thumb:

    Now if you guys could come up with a Parental Control program....

    I hope Parental Control will be optional or we can enable / disable it. ;)

    You can enable/disable every component of WSA, so don't worry :) Although on that note, you can also prevent people from enabling/disabling Parental Controls if you are trying to protect them :D
