right, I agree that it's not a clear-cut solution. It would be futile to rate the apps, because each user has different priorities. There are too many pros and cons.Based on your initial posts, it's not a clear cut solution (reading the Cons)?
What I meant by Install and Forgot, is it's ease of use, when dealing with threats and non-threats. For example, How Auto-Protect in Norton Security will handle your Security compared to a talkative product.
my joke about install and forget (about your system) was trying to poke fun at the experience of installing a new default/deny app, only to find that it trashed the system.
