It seems 119 people read my post and none of them had any sort of a reply. Nice that there is absolutly no product support for a product that obviously has design deficants. Not even a "we're working on that" or a "did you try this"... I hope you realise that these problems are completely unacceptable. I'd rather not have this product than have the problems it intoduces.
I'll be uninstalling and approaching the company for my mony back. The thinking is that if this product is so broken that very basic things as I identified remain unaceptable and there seems to be no real product support, then I seriously question if the designers of this product even know how to protect a computer from a virus. What a POS.
Sorry for your frustration, but infections can sometimes occur silently, by visiting a website containing malicious code. Other times,it happens that a user can allow an infection by installing a program or plug-in, hiding malware within its code.
From your approach I can understand that you are one among those safe & secure internet surfer who would be careful while being online , Even so, the constantly-changing nature of viruses and their different variants makes 100% security impossibility, with any anti-virus software.
But, I recommend that you try running our advanced stinger tool that has major infections & detection added to it, please try it from Required Reading - Home User Assistance Malware Troubleshooting

Sorry, but I find there is absolutly no justification that makes these fatal design flaws acceptable. Your are welcome to your own dim opinion, but I am not close to being sold.
I have uninstalled and gone to a competative product that does not through out my typing, does not lock me out of my own system for minutes (plural) after boot, seems to work with wireless systems, and doesn't nag me to renew a license that is brand new.
