smile, it should be perfectly good, the site is a real one doing good business.
and thanks for the link I'll take a lookmy only thought is if the thing don't completely work right, or jaws gets balky with it, I'm going to be stuck for a while, and unfortunately I don't have an operational Junker at the moment, it got knocked over in my recent move and the power supply went out, *sigh*
growl, well I'll keep the names and when I get something to test on I'll probably go buy a copy, it isn't that expensive.

Well, b4 coming to any conclusions, why not check out: <http://www.wwpi.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=3877&Itemid=128> U might need to copy & paste the link into the open dialog of your browser, though I capped it in angle brackets in hopes that a mere click would work. In short, this would appear to be a reputable security company which is trying to introduce its product. But, as w/anything, it's always good to have current backups, &, when in doubt, install on a machine that's not your primary. But a lot of file servers like download.com, etc., carry this software & I don't think they'd do so if it weren't legit. Could be wrong, of course, but they didn't get to be bigshots in this arena by serving malicious software. Jus my $.02, folks.

Hence the session and all activity, malicious or otherwise, will happen in the virtualenvironment, not in the real PC environment. If the PC is attacked or getsinfected, all you need to do is to simply reboot the PC to erase allchanges. After reboot, the system will be restored to its original state, asif nothing ever happened.
