If anyone tries it out can you please post what you think of it.
Just had a quick glance and first impressions looks promising. I scanned a couple of infected files that Two online scanner's detected 13 malware traces. Spybot detected none. That was the end to my looking around the scanning side of things.
Took more of a look at "Auto Runs" section and though this is more like it. How ever it brings nothing new to the table or any thing that i would not expect to find in a basic start up manager. Deleting old values provided no function via a context menu instead having to be done from the toolbar. Just did not feel quite right.
The process manager UI thread becomes frozen when navigating between processes. Gathering information about selected processes should not freeze the UI. I was in the middle of cleaning but still this should not be happening.
Uninstalling seems to be failing. Was given the option to undo manually the changes SB had made. If i do want to change what SB has done this should be auto at a simple yes. But then again they both refuse to even open for me manually doing said tasks so forced to continue on with out changing these
Has now for the second time been frozen uninstalling
Summery nothing new or special and definitely made me wish i had never of installed.

The one thing I've never truly liked about it is the automatic immunization into Firefox because it makes manually adding in a blocked site take forever, one would think to block sites and such they'd just make a plugin/extension for browsers instead -or- just maintain their own AdBlock Plus list, etc.

There is a thread ongoing in their forums about bugs and behaviour found in the beta. That's how developers are able to improve things... when folk report the bugs.

Was more of a general warning to other users wanting to participate in the beta testing stages.
