    If your going to purchase Spy Guard 2008 DON'T. Your internet security will remove it as a medium threat. I paid for this and now I'm out of money and the service. They say they offer a 30 day money back guarantee but I have been trying for a week and a half and I still have not had anything done. They want even return e-mails and I can't find a phone number to contact them either. DON'T BUY THIS SERVICE!!! IT'S A RIP OFF
