Yeap, It's really nice one.
I always recommend downloading Personal Desktop Version and use it. (but turn off "startup with PC" as you don't need it running all the time)

I have the desktop version also and it works great. IE-8 still shows as insecure.

Agree with jav. Download Secunia PSI and don't run it at boot. Check every few days. Good way to avoid vulnerabilities.

Yeah, but he corrects it in his message. I think a lot of people know what he means.

Yes there is a typo, but I was just trying to help. I am sure that if anyone takes advantage of the offer, they will not mind the error.
