Hi Jimbo,

>>> What does ANY of this stuff offer to HOME users <<<
The same as drinking a glass of pomegranate juice every morning does for my PSA levels? My doctor tells me it could help, whether it really has any effect at all is probably debatable. Maybe the same is true of running AV software (other than the MS stuff which as you say is as good as any). We do so because more knowledgeable people tell us we should and perhaps it makes us feel that we're doing the right thing when all the time all they're interested is emptying our wallets!

I'm sure there's a lot of truth in what you say and you'll obviously know more than me, I'm a novice and just manage to keep things turning over with a bit of good luck and good management - oh and a glass of pomegranate!

Take care and stay warm,
