    Probably just me, but there seems to be (at least) one glaring technical error in that piece

    Not just that, the blog style articles on the techsupport site seem to expose the weakness of security products with very little help on how to address them. This raises the question as to who is the intended target for the ALERTS. :oops:

    Happened to me once. Started up Ad-Aware, it immediately detected some rogue antivirus/spyware. When it was detected 5 secs later Computer restarted itself... I was confused. So I tried again, same thing. Then I got wise and ran Ad-Aware and right when it detected that threat (I memorized what number threat it was), I immediately selected end scan and deleted the files and the computer shut down... Rebooted ran a full scan, whole thing went very, very, smooth (very much to my surprise).:) of course that was before I discovered this bundle of joy of a website... :D

    Tests seem interesting but it is a rather foolish way to put signature based appliances against tests that seem more suitable for HIPS.

    And of course BoClean was not in the line up as usual. :rolleyes:
