While not the ideal option, you can disable the toolbar (which also disables the search annotations [you can do that separately as well]).

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Ive been running NIS2010 since Oct. of last year and have not had any BSOD or system freeze since it was installed & No viruses or malware either in that time.

At least so far ...

TBH, I cant really tell its running. It hasnt effected my sytsem at all perfromance wise, or at least anything noticeable.

As far as which, They are both good. NIS just has a lot more features.

If paying is of no matter to you, Just use which one your more comfortable with and prefer.
