    "Symantec Security Check is a free web-based tool that enables users to test their computer's exposure to a wide range of on-line threats," the press release begins.

      I checked out OK. Says my virus software could do with being a newer version, not sure if that just means buying their product. :lol:

      :) probably, I just stick with AVG, it's free works and is regularly updated - what more could you ask for... oh and as far as I know it doesn't install exploits :D

      I checked out the same as you ~SimonV~, I suppose thats oneway of marketing you product,

      I use McAfee Virus Scan, never had any problems and it has regular updates, it also updates automatically.
