Sept 24, 2013 - ZoneAlarm has done it again!!  ZoneAlarm is falsely reporitng a virus/trojan in ClipMate 7.5.  And it DELETES ClipMate and PREVENTS you from re-installing.   This is a FALSE POSITIVE.  Please report to ZoneAlarm so that they too, can share the pain that they are causing.
ClipMate 7.5 features both 32-bit and 64-bit ClipBar support in both Windows7 and Windows8.  It is a free update to all ClipMate v7 users.  Just install over your current 7.3, and you'll upgrade it "in-place".
Users of the WebRoot firewall will need to make an adjustment to the WebRoot settings in order to allow ClipMate to capture clipboard data from web browsers. Otherwise WebRoot will BLOCK such access! It may also be causing WHITE SCREEN CAPTURES as it may be blocking the PrintScreen key.
ZDNetClipMate is named in Ed Bott's "My 10 favorite Windows programs of all time", saying "I figure it’s paid for itself many, many times over"
