"A- squared" seems to not be a free program?

  p;3 11:54 07 May 05

have been investigating this program as it seems to come highly recommended; trying to download it and run it; downloaded the EXE in to my downloads folder, then started the process; then it wants an e mail address,; it needs this apparently for updating; why?

and seemingly you can only get one update for it , then you have to pay for it; and I gather that the fee is not exactly ,well,

have those that run it paid subs for it , as it seems that you have to register a mail address; yet another method for creating spam mail from anyone unscrupulous:(

most free programs nowadays need internet registration.

Try again, you have downloaded the paid for version and not the free version.

I could be wrong but I dont think I did:(

a link to the seemingly free version would be useful in that case:)

Did you not click on a² Personal instead of Free

as far as I recall I clicked on the free version, but it seems to want some dosh off you at some stage; I "ll have another look soon:)

I have the free version (registered) but it has expired and if I try to update it takes me to a website offering to relieve me of $39.95

However, you should be able to get some free scans out of it.

I've never had any problems with "spam" from them.

My father is in the same position as VoG™. He's been using a² for years and suddenly it decided it wasn't free any more.

He has the software from the same download on other machines and they as still running without any problem.

No matter what he tries to get back to the free version, it will not oblige. An email to emsisoft (the creators) is unanswered after several weeks.

Strange, the free version I have says licence expires 1/1/3000
