What happened to the ability to set the advanced firewall/ network protection for "all other applications" to ask in the paid version? I can set rules for individual programs, but cannot set them for everything and then apply rules as the opportunity arises. I just got off the phone with tech support and was told this feature was removed from Ad-Aware 11! Seriously???
The people in charge of the update decided it was more efficient for me to have to type in information on each and every program then to push a button marked "block" or "allow" and make a rule on the fly??? Unbelievable!! What are you guys using for brains? Do you really think people have that much time on their hands that they have time to build a rule for every peice of software on their marchine, or that they install, that they want to limit internet acces for??
The lame excuse I was given for the change was that the popups asking for access bothered some people. So tell people how to set "all other applications" to allow! Duh! There is no reason to dumb down the program for everyone else. Or was this just the best the tech support guy could come up with to explain a REALLY STUPID decision?
I talked my father into switching from AVG to Ad-Aware because Ad_aware had this feature - like AVG does. Now he will probably cancel and switch back. I'm sure as heck not upgrading. And if it doesn't get fixed, I will be leaving Ad-Aware behind as well.
