Since installing this program with the idea of this covering the gaps otherwise left by other security utilities, it has had chronic mishaps. In my experience, even when asking the program preference to hide the program palette, it always comes up anyway (ignoring my preferences). Not real happy about any utility that overrides consumer preferences. Secondly, I have constant error messages asking that I not run "PeerGuardian2" in the background because it is conflicting with BotRevolt. But I don't have PeerGuardian2 or anything of the sort on the PC. Through research, it appears that BotRevolt itself installs this program as one of its components. So, it installs outside utilities only to clash with itself and present me constant errors messages from its own internal design. Believe it or not, it's true. Worse, when you call BotRevolt about it, then can never help. Instead, they suggest there is a flaw on my PC and look to sell me into "SupportChoice" remote tech support services. ($100 upfront and then $30 per month thereafter.) But because BotRevolt and SupportChoice are essentially one and the same (or contracted to each other), they never recommend uninstalling this program. So, presently, because I bought their services, I have now have had three months of service to correct this (or other areas of PC performance?) However, the only error messages I get are from BotRevolt and PeerGuardian2 itself, and SupportChoice has yet to address these errors. Instead, they recommend RAM upgrades to help system stability (translate: accommodate their software?) But another real mystery for me has been the program itself. While the program is constantly scanning IP addresses for traffic, thereby stopping any attempt of outgoing messages (port activity) from one's PC, the ONLY traffic ever stopped is basic "Microsoft UDP protocol" commands. All others are simply called "Safe Connection" with no information about any approved or halted activity. So, it's hard to really breakdown what is truly happening. The final annoyance is BotRevolt's program palette itself displays "keep BotRevolt up to date," by upgrading to the full paid version. (As if the free version cannot be udpated?) And of course, it advertises "Having trouble with your PC?" Call their toll free number. Which is of course, SupportChoice. The two promote each other (or are one and the same). All I know is, I cannot witness the benefit of the program, have constant conflict errors from their own ...
