Heads up! 2 stars by AungDin May 27, 2006 (Read all my 22 reviews)
I was pleased with this program's performance initially. I installed a new internet explorer and could not get arovaxshield to allow the browser to go directly to my homepage vs. the run once introductory page of the explorer. I un-installed arovaxshield and re-booted. That's when I discovered the uninstallation process disabled my firewall, my anti-virus protection and also administrative priviledges. This prevented me from activating the firewall or the AV protection. I found some other undesirable registry changes as well. In short if you put this baby on you system, you need to know how to remove it without making some uninvited changes in your start up process. show Review details
Not quite perfect yet 2 stars by SNAKEPLISKEN May 17, 2006
The program does what it says but there are some bugs. If you set it to ask you on detection, it does ask you if you want to block or allow the program but once you click on allow/block, the program resets itself back to the "Don't ask me option", so from then on it will block everything without asking. I also found out that after uninstalling, it wipes out your start-up files and had to use Windows XP-system restore to go back in time before I installed Arovax Shield. I also did not find a "Restore Option" if you block a program and find out later that it was not harmful to your pc. show Review details
