    Many rogues are trying to be similar to some of the well known products out there in the market. People get duped and get infected easily and end up paying for something equal to garbage. Here is a spoof of Norton that I had posted some months back.

    posting on a regular basis on avast forums, I notice there are more and more newbies registering to report their issues, after they fell into such traps...why cant they read reviews and stick to known and reputed security software. It's so easy to see it when it's fake my god...or when it just comes out of the middle of nowhere :rolleyes:
