It automatically resubscribes you for the next year at twice the original price Support is snotty I had to wait an hour to talk to someinel. If you resubscribe, you have to unstall and install twice, removing your old codes

It did not notice 5 trojans, that Spoybot caught. They used to be good, but are not compatible with firewalls or anti virus software, and if you want to uninstall your protection to install theirs, you will have to upgrade at their site

It worked as expected, BUT I was very disappointed in the fact that they automatically enroll you in "automatic renewal every year" and you credit card gets charged every year, easy to overlook! They should ask for approval every year rather than just charge you card!
