No - Windows Defender was previously Giant Antispyware. You  mistake
this for Onecare which was RAV :-).

I agree with Ron L.
Symantec the masters of BLOATWARE.
They BLOAT it up then kill it because they have copied the function into
Norton AV.

Art,

I just renewed my KAV/KPSS (2 years) through your Web Site. I hope it
puts you in a higher tax bracket.

Well, I just checked their report and I'm not yet credited with any
sales. Maybe they do it at the end of the month, I don't know. Remains
to be seen if this Affiliate thing actually works as advertised.
Thanks for being a known test case :)

Lets hope the guru's at Ewido will make AVG better. Andreas told me about
the acquisition a few months ago.
