    Going by 1st impressions you have a very useful and well up to date site. VERY handy for someone who is not a complete novice and wants to learn about security threats and how they work, the different types and the sneaky ways they actually get onto your machine in the 1st place!
    I realise your main is to get people to buy this software (which is as you say very good and well worth the small investment, the fact you can ring them if the software can’t do something-unlikely-and they will sort it out for you is a unique feature as far as I know. Helplines are ok but for them to state they WILL fix the problem is a big big bonus) but the amount of information you have on your pages is a brilliant start on it’s own for anyone who doesn’t just want to block them-but to UNDERSTAND them and how they work, get installed, what to watch for.
    Very good reading, I enjoyed the site very much.
    And yes-I will be using the software.:)
