    Hi Pilli,

    I was trying a news reader program that,
    I discovered, was opening every executable link & file it found, even though I had tried to edit such options.

    One of those links opened, it seemed, like a thousand crazy browser windows and almost overpowered my laptop; then PG came on and asked if I wanted to run something. The other times it stopped a virus in its tracks.

    That newsreader is gone forever now; back to Free Agent & more security.

    Well that was a close call with a nasty NG reader it sounds like. That's one of the things I like about PG. It stands guard by the door and alerts you when something might be of concern to system safety processes then gives you the choice to take action either to permit the process to continue or do not come inside your house! ;)

    Glad you went back to Free Agent. I've been using Agent for years and haven't found anything better yet. It agrees very well with PG too.
