    if your going to stop Virus's, spy ware, and Hackers

    to completely manage your online security for you.

    fees for expert service and support and you enjoy unlimited technical

    I cannot imagine anything being more incorrect.

    Stated in the most simple terms I can...
    "If you are going to help prevent infections/infestations by
    viruses/worms/trojans and/or spyware/adware/malware and secure your computer
    system (and the data within) against external threats - you need to educate
    yourself and use good common sense with your new found knowledge."

    "I am a spammer and want to con you out of your money by selling you
    out of date software"

    Well, no he didn't actually, but the statement is 100% true.
    Spammer. He was stupid enough to post his ad to
    here are a few of the replies.

    "On Thu, 6 Dec 2007 19:53:08 -0800 (PST), smithfam1
    <> wrote a lot of crap.

    Yes, Virus's, spyware and hackers can be stopped. But not by urging
    people to randomly clicking links."

    "Please, take your post to alt.soliciting.advertising"

    "Little do you know" followed by:
    "Yes, for example, why are you offering three-to-five year old
    of software? PestPatrol from December 2004? Heh."

    and "Anyone who uses a plain mailto link like
    on their website is unfit to lecture others on security."

    "did a little digging and posted this to a couple of other groups
    where the original post appeared:

    Smith Family Robinson is trying to make a little money by touting
    Invisus PestPatrol, a rebranded anti-spyware product. It is listed
    here under "Legitimate/Licensed Clones":

    People looking for such software should scroll down to the
    "Trustworthy Anti-Spyware Products" section and choose one of those
    instead. The original Pest Patrol can be found here:

    Don't support spammers."

    And the spammer is lying. There is some very good free stuff out
    there. Not industrial grade, but fine for private use.

    AVG - free - works.
    Norton - costly and blinkin' useless.
    McAfee - costly and not all that effective.
