    Ok, I was out shopping and found the Guardian Worm Killer & Anti-Virus at a discount store for $ 1.00
    It was never opened, had the security seal n all. It says it has free updates for one full year. But as I look down at the copyright, it says 2003.
    Does that mean it will only update from 2003 for one year ? Or one year AFTER I install it?
    I already am using e-trust antivirus, and firewall, I have until Oct. on that free trial. So I will not even bother with the Guardian until then. I just wonder at that time will I still be able to get free updates for a year? Thanks

    I believe Guardian Anti-Virus and Worm Killer was Boomerang Software's product line till eXtendia AVK came. It is related to AVK in a way, maybe it uses the AVK 10 kernel and engine....

    I'm not sure...you might consider dropping Boomerang an email...

    EDIT:- Its very much possible you WILL get the updates, because if its a 2003 AV...well yes, most of the time you still get the updates for one year...

    Well, I got it from a discount grocery store, on an isle where everything is $1.00
    Books, movies, CD's.etc: etc: Some looked like name brand stuff. And some looked like just cheap stuff. I guess they give that kinda stuff to stores for quick sale. Who knows o_O? I wonder how many people actually use Guardian, and are satisfied with it. :D

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    It's called a "clearance" sale Firecat... they throe out old stock which didn't sell to minimize losses... not for profits.. thereby recovering valuable rack-space for new inventory.

    People always want to look at new inventory and buy the old one cheap. ;)

    anyone remember them adidas and reebok factory outlet sales they used to have?
