I mentioned to Connie that you also need NIS 2009 installed to use it ;)

that seems foolish at first. But maybe they didn't want to get into that arena, what with SiteHound, AVG\LinkScanner and others already propagating the landscape.

Wouldn't surprise me ......... I'd have expected them to release it for free as a standalone product like the rest, and see how it faired against the competition, before pulling it into the main app and restricting the crap out of it :(

Heh,too late for them in my opinion...and as they say,"simplicity is a virtue":
I personally find that some nifty freeware programs from some friends around here,
can do the trick/achieve the same effect with way way much less hassle...  ;)
