Why is Chrome not letting me download version 2.0?

Since Cold Turkey 2.0 was just released, the executable installer hasn't gained enough reputation with Google Chrome to allow the file to download. You can try using another browser until the new version gains the reputation it needs. Cold Turkey will still block sites on Chrome. This should just take a couple days.

Why is the interface all messed up?

Cold Turkey requires you to have Internet Explorer 9.0 or newer installed. The update is available to Windows Vista (or newer) users for free through Windows Update. Unfortunately Windows XP will not be supported.

I'm a Pro user. How do I upgrade without paying again?

To upgrade to Cold Turkey 2.0, simply download the basic version and use your activation code within the app to instantly upgrade it to Pro.

I'm a Pro user. Why haven't I received an update email?

We currently don't have enough resources to handle a lot of people upgrading to the new version at the same time. Once I confirm version 2.0 is stable, you will receive an email.

Why is this being flagged by my anti-virus?

There are two possible reasons. First, similar to the issue with Chrome, it's possible that the new version of Cold Turkey hasn't gained enough reputation with your antivirus yet. Second, Cold Turkey will attempt to access the hosts file. This file is powerful in the wrong hands which is why it might be being blocked. If you think there are conflicts with your antivirus, please add the following file as an exception: C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
