- Does McGruff SafeGuard
monitoring software upgrade itself periodically?
No, because firewalls can unintentionally show your children
that McGruff SafeGuard is installed on the PC.
When firewall software (such as Norton, McAfee or ZoneAlarm)
detects new software contacting the Internet, it pops up a window
asking if that's OK. Automatic installation of a new version
of McGruff SafeGuard monitoring software could cause that to occur.
Instead, you will be notified from time to time when a new
version is available. After you install it, the
configuration and self-diagnostics ensure that all pop=up windows
occur during that configuration, and not later when your child is
using the PC.
