It's a free trial for 14 days. It expires after that. If you wish to continue using it after that, you have to buy it. Otherwise, uninstall it.

You can download updates from their website still, but it should be purchased or removed after 14 days as flrman1 said.

I may be wrong, but from what I understand from their site, the 14 day trial is for the plus version with the added features and after that period of time, the added features expire and you can continue to use the free version, unless you purchase the plus version.

http://www.ewido.net/en/download/


This setup contains the free as well as the plus-version of the ewido security suite. After the installation, a free 14-day test version containing all the extensions of the plus-version will be activated. At the end of the test phase, the extensions of the plus version are deactivated and the freeware version can be used unlimited times. The purchased license code of the plus version can be entered at any time.

Cookie is correct

the first 14 days it is fully featured and has the guard to protect you and autoupdate etc

after 14 days it reverts to teh freeware version where you have to manually update and will only scan on demand and fix but not do it automatically

tehre are other differences between teh 2 versions but these are the main ones

So best advice is:
If you have found it usefuil then shell out the few $ to let it protect you

Thanks Karen and Derek. I didn't know that.

Now I can cross that off the ever-growing list of things I don't know! ;)

I know yours is a pretty short list. You wouldn't want to see mine. Now if I could only remember where I put it. :D ;)
