I take it back. There is an uninstaller integral with the installer. And VirusBarrier plays MUCH better with other processes than MacAfee VirusScanner, BY FAR! And it gives much better feedback on the process of scanning.

VirusBarrier sounds about like VirusScan (VIREX), only without an uninstaller. It seems the Mac community is in need of virus cure that is not worse than the illness! Developer opportunity, anyone?

The installer worked right for me, first try, and the programs run at least as well as they did before, though I haven't checked out everything.

The last update fixed the notorious problem where old files had their last modified date changed when they were simply opened. Hopefully some of the stability issues will be corrected with this update.

Whatever one thinks of Office and MS, nothing can touch the Word outliner/TOC tool. If you are a serious writer of structured documents, you can go to FrameMaker or InDesign, but that's a whole other level of expense and complexity. I would cheer heartily if Pages, Mellei or others were to imitate the Word outliner!! AppleWorks never got it right, and neither have any of the others.

It would be a lot better if it didn't make it impossible to rename a file in the Finder. It still renders the cursor and highlighting inoperative when renaming files. I have to close the Finder window and open a new one to get it to work again, and then only briefly. Unacceptable.

One of the best pieces of software ever! Put me over the hump of doing a full automated backup daily, because it is just so easy and foolproof.

And it finds corrupted files that Disk Utility can't find.

THE solution to backup onto external hard drives...

Great took and I've been a long time user, but the last couple of revs have really got problems:

* slow transfer rates way below my network limits.

* failure to complete transfers, hanging with beachball, has to be force quit.

* No old versions available on the web site.

Great initial experience.

Downloaded, installed, up and running and installed and unsupported program that runs just fine. Total time investment about 20 min. Either I'm exceedingly lucky or this is the best thing ever to come along. Imagine! Run Windows software without having to buy and run Windows! This is the way running Windows software on a Mac should be!

Awwww.... PPC only!

I'm pretty sure this is the first update EVER that required me to repair privileges before I could get my machine to boot after the update was complete. Maybe it was all those warnings that one should do that BEFORE doing the update?

I was taken aback by the lack of a demo, but for $10 it seemed worthwhile when the compared to either $399 for a commercial product or burying one's head in pages of procedures for the weekend. It was up and running in 5 minutes and the online documentation is written at just the right level. There is even a helpful tool for relaying through your ISP mail server when that is required... I have yet to explore IMAP, but that really makes sense for one's own mail server, doesn't it!
