Sygate Licencing Ruling.

  Meshuga 18:50 01 Aug 2003

I am thinking of changing my firewall, which is
Preventon, to Sygate. Part of the licensing
agreement with preventon says that you cannot
delete CDilla which runs with it. If you do the main prog stops running and you have to reinsert
the disc to re activate it. Does anyone know if
Sygate firewall insists on similar requirements
Spybot shows CDilla as a possible threat to privacy.Meshuga.

I think it is disgusting that CDilla is installed with Preventon firewall.

Anyway, I would say Zonealarm is the best and free version is avaliable, click here

It does NOT install spyware, and sygate does not too.

The preventon website is made my Tribal advertising. LOL.

And it does not even mention it installs it: click here

It informs you that they respect privacy.

What a little scam they must have going.

I wish they wouldnt do that on us.

Gaz25. Many thanks for your reply. Will think about which to get of the 2. Regards, Meshuga.

The title to this thread is wrong as it isnt Sygate that contains spyware.

Methinks Gaz25 is orbiting Planet Paranoia again.

Contrary to Gaz25s' uninformed rantings, Cdilla is NOT spyware here. It is to copy protect programmes from pirates. It will not affect your computer nor will it broadcast your wanderings to Big Brother. Installing it is not the end of the world nor will it make your hair fall out.

The Sack. With respect I think you have misread
the thread since nowhere did I say that Sygate
was spyware. What I DID ask was did Sygate have the same system as preventon such as insisting on
having certain other progs running as part of the
main prog even if you dont want them. Meshuga.
