Reading this thread has made me very nervous about doing anything online ever. It gives off the message that your never ever safe ever. While its probably true, that doesn't mean we should deny ourselves a very VERY helpful tool like an auto-updater due to fear.
I love all of Piriforms applications, but the only problem is the updating. I love how much it gets updated, but a lot of the time when i am running maintenance i don't have/wait my internet browser open. A built in updater just makes sense to me.
If its a security issue, cant people just have an option to turn it off?
