 I really appreciate the Threat Monitor (on WIndows) but would like it even better if I could run it under Mac OS X Snow Leopard.  Any idea when it will be ready for Mac?

 I have a Windows system with multiple monitors and Threat Monitor only displays on 2 out of the 3?

I'm glad Linda that it's a screensaver! For once I'm glad I took the time to check this out! I'm running
vista 64, and it works just fine. Thanks!

Months keep passing and yet there's still no update for the Mac OSX Snow Leopard OS.  Either post the updated code or remove the message that it will "be available soon" as that's clearly inaccurate.

No updates for Mac Snow Leopard OS but we hope we will see something soon.

Very nice screensaver!

I'd rather have a dynamic RSS feed that I could display on my Sharepoint page. I have to provide those stats to executives in our company often.

I don't see the screen saver as that useful, as when the PC is on screensaver, the user is not looking at the monitor, they are gone.

I like the idea of a gadget for Windows 7 as well.

@qwertyannonymous maybe your hard drive might have a problem. Try to check on your event logs if there is any logs connecting to disk failure or disk error.
I was working fine in my windows7 but unfornately, it doesnt run if my laptop when I disconnect to network.
