old entries. Obviously, the search engine doesn't do any heuristics but
only looks up a database that doesn't keep up with the number of real

I looked at F-Secure, d/l the trial version, read the read-me, and found
it would _detect and automatically uninstall_ any existing anti-malware
program. That IMO is unacceptable.

It would be acceptable to shut down another running program , _after
asking for explicit permission_. But uninstall it? That's arrogance of a
breathtaking kind. This high-handedness make me suspicious of anything
from F-Secure.
