but it seems (or seemed) solid). I find that this product
"automatically" updates itself whenever I get on the net (dial-up). At
least, it changes the "last updated" announcement and when I try a
manual update it always says "already updated" or somesuch. This
updating seems to happen inivisably and instantly, whereas E-trusts Pest
Patrol spyware takes 35 minutes to update (said by someone on the
spyware ng to be due to my W98. As a matter of interest I think it
would be much better manners to give an announcement box allowing the
option to update, and then a progress bar to visibly show progress, as
happns with most eg Microsoft downloads, but neither oif these products
does that. Why such a difference in updating them, and do you guys
think from my explanation that the Anti-virus software does in fact
update at all. BTW, I've read the almost universal negative comments
about Norton that I see here, but when I used that software, and
updated, I could see via progress bars the software updating and it took
typically 5 minutes (much more as expected, I feel). Please reply if
you have any idea, and if W98 is so out of date, why the apparent
difference between the new products.
Finally, just a theory which I'm sure you'll kick around. Since
installing AV software I've had no end of peculiar happenings that never
occurred before. Methinks the whole thing might be a ploy, and that the
safest thing is never to be involcved with Anti virus software at all!
Just my two cents worth...
