    I went to that site.

    Hardly surprising.  Anti-virus software targets viruses, not trojans.

    I read the blurb and, as ever, I'm severely underwhelmed by claims which are totally unsubstantiated.  This is marketware as far as I'm concerned, until they're prepared to back up their claims.  As for the relatively cheap price, well...what's the point in being 'a bit protected' for a good price when you can be totally protected for the cost of TDS-3?

    Hey ho.

    You will never be totally protected checkout. Bear that in your mind.

    Interestingly Moosoft (home of the Cleaner) rate it second with the Cleaner naturally (!) being number 1.

    Surely though, AVP and TDS-3 can't be _that_ bad?!?!

    They are dreaming. Nice advertisement comparison though. Poor marketing strategy!!!

    Technodrome, if I believed that for a single second, I'd never visit the Net ever again.  I strongly believe that it is possible to be 100% safe.  Logic dictates this.

    I do not agree.  However, there's no universal test to prove or disprove it.

    It's possibly true that the greatest weakness is not the machine we use, but the mind behind the machine.  :(  Aside from that, binary isn't open to persuasion.

    I am unsure how you can be so sure that you are 100% hack proof.

    The amount of education and knowledge to be able to say that with real conviction surely eludes you. (as it does us all)
