Since prevx was acquired by webroot they have “acquired” a decrease to zero integrity
Sure the news is a little dated but I wanted to reaffirm a recommendation before issuing it again… which now is not going to happen.
Once upon a time “what should I do to protect my [windows] machine” could have been answered with “buy a prevx license”. In good conscience did I recommend this single “security product” to most everyone from barely-able-to-turn on computer illiterates to power-users.
No longer. The bloatware/malware PRODUCERS, webroot, now controls the ship. Webroot software, like norton, FIRST design priority is license validation at an unacceptably HUGE resource cost. Webroot code is also fundamentally malicious.
Prevx was trustworthy. Until demonstrated otherwise prevx as a webroot product is completely untrustworthy.
… sadly as more people “discover” email I need continue re-educate them on BCC usage.. sigh
