    I've seen commercials a lot lately for this website StopSign.com by eAccelleration.

    They have online virus scan, spyware scan, firewall, pop-up blocker, and spam removal.

    Of course, it's not free....but I just thought I would bounce this around and see if anybody has heard anything about it..

    such as...What AV do they use to scan? What firewall do they provide? etc..

    Is that the program with ads running for it on the ~snip~ tube?

    If it is, avoid the product. The ads look very shady. How many legit anti-spyware makers place ads on the the ~snip~ tube? StopSign is the only one I've ever seen.

    I'm not convinced of the safety of this product either.

    I've seen the commercial on Comedy Central, Encore, and Animal Planet. The commercial is retarded and is geared towards making people paranoid about what "Could be" on their systems.

    While this does not necessarily answer most of your questions....just a little info concerning their past per the Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products & Web Sites.

    Note on eAcceleration Stop-Sign:
