    Because I don't have any subscription code, only reg key, I can't use Shaw secure anymore. Obviously there isn't such as a free lunch. :D

    Best regards,

    I got the same email too and deleted it.
    I had the software installed for about 5 minutes and uninstalled it right away after seeing how big and bloated it was. No big loss anyway. :D

    (Sorry about the cross-post. I repsoned to the seven page thread before seeing this. Just repeating what I said there.)

    This is highly decptive and appears to me to be a marketing ploy to draw people to the Shaw site (to attract new business) and then pull the rug out from under them. Not to mention that the email subject has nothing to do with Shaw Secure but has a generic topic of "Service Improvement Announcement". This could cause other users of Shaw Secure to completely miss the re-registration request. Imagine their suprise when their license suddenly expires and their machine is left vulnerable!! And all this simply because Shaw most likely made a mistake in offering the product to people outside of its registered users.

    It would seem to me that a less publicity damaging solution would be to let those non-customers that downloaded the program continue using it.
