  1. Tried Personal 2.51. The news window still goes off the right edge of the screen. The "Privacy Scan" gets stuck somewhere and never finishes.
  2. Thanks for finding it. But that leaves open the questions of why pressing S didn't put me at least somewhere in the vicinity, and why the sites on the list are not in alphabetical or some other logical order.
  3. News window off edge of screen When AWC Personal 2.5 starts, it brings up two windows: The main program window and a separate news window. The main program window is in the exact center of the screen. The news window appears to its right, partially off the right edge of the screen. There's a lot of open desktop to the left. If you must open two windows, why not position them more to the left so that both fit comfortably on the screen?
  4. Statcounter.com AWC Personal 2.5 has a couple of problems with Statcounter.com. Statcounter.com provides a tracking service to webmasters, giving them information about visitors to their site. Statcounter uses two completely different kinds of cookies, and AWC fails to distinguish between the 2 types. The 2 types are "tracking" cookies and "blocking" cookies. If you visit my web site, Statcounter will try to give you a tracking cookie. That cookie is just to let me know you have been here before. If you visit again, Statcounter will list you as a "returning visitor" as opposed to a "first time visitor". You may not want me to know that you have visited my site before. You may consider that an invasion of your privacy, and I respect that. In that case you will be glad to delete all tracking cookies from statcounter and prevent it from serving new ones. The problem is with the blocking cookies. Statcounter willl never serve you one of those. A blocking cookie is available only to registered users of the service, and only on request--see attached screenshot. Its sole purpose is to prevent me from being listed as a visitor to my own site. AWC lists the blocking cookie as a spyware, and does not offer me any opportunity to add it to the ignore list. (In contrast, A-squared Free by Emsi Software does allow me to whitelist the blocking cookie.) Another problem with statcounter.com: It is on your list of bad web sites. That may be desirable to many people because of the tracking cookies, but again it causes me a problem by preventing me from acquiring a blocking cookie. I want to select all the bad web sites for protection and then unselect statcounter.com, but I can't find it. The list is not in alphabetical order, and no matter how many times I press S it does not show up.
