Superantispyware is an antispyware program, not an antivirus program.  there 
is a difference between spyware, which is usually more of an irritant and 
does more superficial damage - than anything else, and a virus which can do 
deep damage to your software.  betterh to have both, that is, an antispyware 
program and an antivirus program, on your computer.  By anti-spyware, we 
often mean anti-adware - applets which 'phone home' to their 'masters' from 
our computers what we've been up to on the Web lately.  The anti-spyware 
program will catch more spyware, and that is better, than that an antivirus 
program will have to catch viruses.  the anti-spyware program itself is *no 
protection* against viruses.

To complicate matters just a little, many antivirus programs now also 
include an anti-spyware element - they take a more 'holistic approach' 
(heuristic approach) to your computer's health and your stress level!  I'll 
leave it there, as enough said.

  Subject: [vip_students] avast question for paul or others


  can someone tell me please. I was told from Paul to use avast for my 
computer which I did. I downloaded it and was using it the last few weeks 
with no problem. I paid €80 subscription at the end of the payment page it 
said this is a once off payment only. the problem im having now is I used 
someone else's credit card and two months of €12  was taken out of the card 
from a company call download .com which I did not agree to. and they wanted 
to take €12  every month. its not the money that worries me its the fact 
that I was told there was only a once of payment to be made.  so I rang them 
and canceled it he told me on the phone that I would be not entitled to any 
more upgrades for my avast so I agreed it was not my credit card. now my 
avast has stopped working and my computer is open. now I paid the money for 
avast and I am being told that I have to pay more. how is this I feel ripped 
off. what can I do is there a free version of avast or what will I do. 
please help many thanks.
