I think this is a well-established product and consistently the highest rated product for protecting kids and teens on the Internet, and protection is highly recommended if you know the facts. [No need to be paranoid but some common sense supervision of your kids while on the Internet and a product to cover the remaining situations is a good idea.] This product gets consistently good reviews and has many good features.
Con: The version 7.7 does NOT list Windows 7 compatibility. If you buy it and it does not work with Win7, it's your problem, according to the Amazon sub-vendors. I had checked and was told that it does work with Win7 and the info on Amazon will be updated, bought it, but when it arrived, the packaging still did not list Win7, so I asked the manufacturer and learned that they view it as Win7 compatible (despite not showing same...), but only with the 32-bit version, NOT tested with 64-bit, and we have 64-bit (Win7 Home Premium) so we returned the software, taking a hit on return shipping costs that neither the vendor nor Amazon would address. The vendor's position was understandable, not frivolous or mean, but also not very gracious. Many people do not have the savvy to even look at system requirements in the first place much less determine 32-bit vs. 64-bit.
Just note that "officially" it is not compatible with Win7 despite that operating system being out for a long while now and being the default system provided with new computers (a very common situation when buying new software...), which is a pretty dumb situation and a likely pitfall for consumers.
Summary: If you have WinXP, etc., it should be a great product. If you have Win7, you are rolling the dice, may work fine or not work
The CyberPatrol website does NOT make it clear that this software is NOT supported under Win7 64-bit. They just say "Windows 7". Well if your going to put it that way, then I'm going to assume *any* version of Windows 7, not just the 32-bit one. See for yourself - hopefully they fix it: [...]
I tried the mfg suggestion of disabling AV software and clearing temp files and history under IE. Did a complete reinstall after those, but got the same sluggish performance.
The response I got back from tech support: "Also, please note that presently, 64-bit OS's are not officially compatible with, nor supported by CyberPatrol. We have seen some cases where it was successfully installed and functioned on 64-bit Windows 7, but it is not guaranteed to do that, as it was not developed for, nor tested in a 64-bit environment."
If you have Windows 7 64-bit the I'd recommend staying away.
