We researched, purchased, and installed Alluria on our computer. It includes antispyware, pop-up blocker, and Dr. Speed (for internet page downloads). It seems that since then we have done this, we have had more problems than solutions. It catches a lot of intruders, but it also lets a lot in.

Does someone know something that we don't? We researched a lot of other antispyware programs and this one seemed to come out on top. We even read about rogue companies passing their software off as legitimate and helpful. Were we taken? Or is there something else out there that is just a lot better?

Thanks.

Just my opinion, but I am wary of an application that tries to do TOO MUCH. I generally prefer to have specialised applications for each, if I need them.
