WOW! WASTE OF MONEY AS DEVELOPER CAN'T EVEN KEEP UP WITH APPLES UPDATES...

1) YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR EVERY SOFTWARE UPDATE

2) EVEN IF YOU WERE WILLING TO PAY LIKE I WAS STUPID ENOUGH TOO, DEVELOPER JUST DISAPPEARS.

3) NOW YOU CAN EITHER, NEVER UPGRADE PAST 10.5.5 OR WELL NEVER UPGRADE PAST
10.5.5, I HOPE NOBODY ELSE GET'S SCAMMED.

4) DEV = JOKE, PLAIN AND SIMPLE. DO NOT BUY PRODUCT, OH WAIT, DEVELOPER IS AWOL.

4 GOOD REASONS NEVER TO DEAL WITH THIS DEVELOPER IF YOU EVEN WANT TO CALL HER THAT.

I decided to try this anyway. I did try some of the free methods people suggested,but I had no luck. Note, first, that the demo is useless. Note, also, that immediately after you pay, you'll see a receipt page and a button link for "Return to NothingGoes." DO click that link. It downloads the paid (i.e., working) version.

That's very unclear but apparently a vital thing to do. I would have waited forever to receive some kind of serial number, not knowing that I missed the rather hidden download link. I don't see why this develop uses such convoluted methods for what seems like an otherwise straightforward product.

And, yes, from what I can tell, the program does work.

Pay per update

With an attitude like Microsoft I wouldn't recommend this tool for anyone with half a brain.

Save your money and spend it on yourself instead of scamware like this.

Works fine for one version but then every security or OSX update renders this steaming pile of crap useless.

Pathetic

I purchased the first verison of this, because I figured at $5 it was worth it. IIRC, that was when Leopard was at version 10.5.2.

Every new version of Leopard requires a new version of iQuarantineX, which makes sense to me. The upgrade to version 10.5.3 of iQuarantineX was free, but with version 10.5.4 the developer wants another $5.

At the time I purchased iQuarantineX there was no indication that my $5 would only last a couple of versions of OS X. If I was to pay another $5 for version 10.5.4, there's no mention of when I'd have to fork over another $5 for a future upgrade (but I'm guessing it wouldn't be long). So I'm not going to purchase the new version, and I'll learn to live with Leopard's occasional reminder that I downloaded an app from the Internet.

In terms of functionality, iQuarantineX does what it says it will do, and it is dead simple to use. In terms of value, it's not worth it. A good app ruined by a bad pricing strategy.

Well. I feel screwed. I actually paid for this and when the new version arrived it states:

--- start ---
REMINDER: iQuarantine X v10.5.4 and up, will be pay updates....
--- end ---

So even if I was enthusiastic at first I now would recommend to stay away. This is to greedy.

Possible almost since Leopard showed up. It's a simple matter of setting up a Folder Action Script. If you prefer a prebuilt script, see here:

Use at your own risk -- the warnings below are reasonable ones.

Sorry, but I'm with Marook.

If you want to PAY MONEY to hobble your system, that's your business.

If you want to REALLY have a secure system, save your money, and put it towards a 'Little Snitch' license and avoid this crapware.

RE: leoofborg1
After much debate here at NOTHINGGOES.com we conclude that you have no idea
what iQuarantine X does. iQuarantine X can not do what an app like 'Little Snitch' does,
nor can an app like 'Little Snitch' do what iQuarantine X does.

iQuarantine X in no way (hobbles) a users system.
Again, if you understood what iQuarantine X did you would in fact understand such.

We have also seen your comments on other boards (with such low end statements,
regarding iQuarantine X as (crapware) and (malware types).
We can only say that making false accusations such as this will only lead you to very
unpleasant places.

2. Learn how to do a whois lookup

Thank you and have a wonderful day,

As the 'author' has given me some tasks, here ya go:

Funny. Reviewing the evidence I think I'd say the same thing again.

Actually I *do* know how to use WHOIS from the command line:

Note the vague names and.. 'Domains by Proxy'. Very interesting.

Next: It's very hard to contact you via your website as there are no links nor 'About' page as of this writing. We don't know who you are, why would we buy software from you?

Finally, the only 'low quality' response I made was to MacUpdate, not 'various boards'... But if the "developer" [note the quotes] likes, I can certainly post it somewhere where other users are likely to "Digg" the story.

Okay, now that we know it's possible, someone needs to figure out what this app does and post it as a hint somewhere.

So, we charge money to remove this one-up message?
Yeah, it might be annoying as long as you know what you download, but when something try to run an app you have NOT allowed, you will be sorry you payed up this fee....

Ohh, and if this remind you of Window$, then I guess you haven't used Vista yet... as it just piss you off. At least OS X keeps track of what you allow, and can tell you what actual URL the application came from - even after it was extracted from a Zip &&&&&& a DMG file.

Do you REALLY need to pay $5 to get rid of that kind of security?

Remember to keep back up.. if you use this!
