    why there is no trial download for boclean?

    if there is trial download it will make boclean more fames becuase it will be in download.com


    its hard for many people to give money even if BOClean comes with a money-back guarantee



    also if they work more with the BOClean website , its good to upgrade the website design ,really its need work and newlook

    There focus is corporate accounts unlike some others which concentrate on the home user market which have MORE of a need to entice individuals. BOClean was not created with home users in mind although home users can use it. I researched several AT's on the wilder's forums and bought this one. It runs very lite on my old computer. Support has been great. Very easy to use. Set and forget. Good for the average Joe. You don't need to be a geek to use it. Money well spent. The web site is kinda dated but info is easy to find.

    The following is a very good reason.

    BOCLEAN GETS SUED FOR "RESTRAINT OF TRADE"

    In the summer of 2000, the NETBUS trojan was sold to a Florida Corporation who decided to resell Netbus as "a legitimate remote administration tool." When they learned that BOClean was detecting the Netbus trojan as "Netbus trojan" their lawyers took action against Privacy Software Corporation, demanding a "cease and desist" on our detection of Netbus. Our corporate lawyer and our management contested the assertion, and prior to trial came to a settlement with the dealer (now defunct) which determined that BOClean would be provided with a "Do NOT detect Netbus" option in order to stop BOClean from detecting Netbus *IF* the end user so desired. A legal precedent was also set under New York jurisdiction (we're a New York Corporation legally) by this settlement which was upheld by the courts. Our "option" to NOT detect at the discretion of the end user was an "adequate remedy" under New York State law, and BOClean is governed by same.

    BECAUSE we were not a "common carrier" in that there is no "evaluation copy" available to the "general public" BOClean is seen legally as a "subscriber service" and our decisions to cover or NOT cover certain malware is legally seen as a "service" rather than an obligation and thus legally, because we do NOT offer "to the general public," we are a "private club" and thus entitled to ANY discrimination "on behalf of our subscribers" as WE see fit. Netbus therefore had no legal standing to challenge our decision. AND, because we agreed in a settlement to place the "Do NOT detect Netbus" in our configuration screen, the embarassment of the "this is bad, but ignore it" display in our product only served to bury Netbus as a "legitimate remote administration tool."

    The outcome is there is already legal precedent for BOCLEAN under the law, and whereas other antimalware had surrendered to bogus legal claims (but eventually relented after we won the decision) and dropped the detection of malware, BOCLEAN is under no such legal obligation. We act on behalf of our "subscribers" BECAUSE there are no "free to the general public" releases of BOClean. THAT provision is what keeps everybody safe even if it costs us "easy sales."

    This means they do not have to give way to Cease and Desist threats.

    @john2g- Thanks for that quote. It was a real eye-opener.
