    You don't have a feedback forum, so I put this here. I get this a lot while perusing the site. I think it is from one of your ads. This is just a heads up.

    I didn't get that, but I am not using Google Chrome. I am running OS 10.6.8 Safari 5.1.7

    What I love about Kaspersky - 271 threats avoided today and it never saw reason to bother me with any of them.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    Have no idea what my trusty little HP laptop is ... but I just checked in, and had no warnings of any kind.

    Only look up such important info on this machine when I absolutely need to!

    Is not a Mac ... that much I *do* know.

    I have Avast! on my Mac. It works better on here than on Windows.

    IE is a security hole. I could't tell you how many PC's I cleaned out from clients using that browser. Google Chrome or Firefox are the best ones to use. But then that is up to you. I can't force you to use something else.

    My goodness, you sound like my son. ...

    But as I told him, I have had a PC since 1997, taught my self how to use it with Dummies books. Back then it was Windows 3.0 ... and making and handling files using "File Manager" was something else altogether, let me tell you.

    Also had to "format" floppy disks before using them, all kinds of fun stuff in those days.

    I have taken apart a CPU with a screwdriver, located the mother-board and inserted more memory when needed once.

    Even had to reformat my hardrive, completely taking out windows, and work with DOS from scratch to get rid of a nasty virus. (With the help of a costly phone call to India, speaking to a techie that I could barely understand, while drinking a whopping great glass of wine for courage ... while he walked me through it!)

    Put windows back in, and it worked perfectly!!! So there!

    However ... this little gem, I have no intention of messing with. Will take it to the shop if anything should go wrong.

    And keeping fingers crossed, nothing has so far!

    I am glad that nothing has gone wrong with it so far. By the way, I been working on PC's since the Commodore 64 ;)
