Okay, this time I get a vague feeling of being conned. I can’t prove it, hence it goes in the “conspiracy” section.
I have gone 1.5 years without any virus problem on my laptop. I have it pretty well protected: anti-virus software running, an extra anti-virus check subscription with my ISP, a good firewall, no outlook but Thunderbird, no IE but Firefox, and I don’t click attachment if I don’t know what they are. I frequently scan my system, the last time was a week ago and it was clean.
Now, my (payed) subscription to the DAT files of a certain anti-virus software vendor whose anti-virus software I use, will expire in 2 weeks….
And loo behold: this morning suddenly a warning pops up that it “detected a virus” and has deleted it.
That is very timely, after 1.5 years no problems, right before my subscription renewal. Am I being conned by their marketing department here? I have that vague feeling….
