Dear Insidious sidey,
Are you related to ''King Guru''? Any chance your middle name is ''Flamer'', or maybe ''King Flamer''? I know this will probably provoke another ''foaming at the mouth'' post, but oh well you deserve it.
The only thing she was pointing out is that ''King Flamer a er King Guru'', has spent more time voraciously hunting down posts of people he can cut and chop on than posting intelligent, responsible posts with any coherence. His attack mode is always turned on, much like yours!
Now I don't want to say anything bad about ''Symantec'', least I offend someone who used to work for them, and is a tiny bit sensitive to this whole subject. I will say that there are a few good companies in this business, but like the acting and music business, there are whole lot more pretenders than legitimate ones.
Greed it seems, rules this World of ours, and this is evidenced by the list of more than suspect ''Anti-Virus'' and ''Anti-Spyware'' programs:
***The link for ''Bogus and Supect'' Anti-Virus Programs'' was deleted from my ''Bookmarks (Favorites)''!*** Oh well!;)
***I will add that among the small list of respectable anti-virus companies listed were as follows:
Grissoft AVG Anti-virus, Anti-Vir, eTrust-EZ Antivirus, Bitdefender, Kaspersky Anti-virus, McAfee Virus Scan, Norton Anti-Virus, TrendMicro Anti-virus, Panda Anti-virus, ShieldPro Anti-Virus.***
Most all of the companies listed were hit (in reviews) for Questionable Marketing Practices, except for eTrust EZ Anti-Virus, which actually under markets itself. Is a newer company and at one time gave it's full year updates free, if you found it through Microsoft's site. I don't believe any of these excellent referral deals is available any longer from any other companies or from Microsoft. But eTrust still does not use any high presure sales, bogus reviews n referral ploy, cut down free version (as in "Your Not Fully Protected, You Need to Buy Me") incentive, download n shock-scan sales ploys (You're infected Buy Me now).
Note: Anti-Vir was purchased by (you guessed it) Symantec. I guess Norton's was missing something. But before they get corrupted by their new owner you can download ''Anti-Vir Personal Classic'' beta: ***Beta***
***Many of the above listed programs run far too many processes, that tend to slow your system down in their own interest. A few of these run as many as 8 processes (a few of those are hidden). Such as fraud control DRM type programs etc.(that seem to be a favorite these days). Of course we all know we're the criminals in their eyes and if you aren't paying for their service, you should be locked up and get your hand spanked very hard.
Well if the ''Angry Twins'' read this far maybe they've discovered some useful information and won't be so quick to cut n chop for the slightest perceived wrong, mispelled or shorthand mistake contained post. Oh yea ''Remember'' only pure form english should be spoken here. How dare YOU make a mistake! King Guru or evil twin ''sidey'' won't allow it!
But my bet is we'll see a scathing rebuke after this one, indicating they didn't have a clue what this post was all about and will continue to rant n rave about how messed up everyone else is except them.
