A warning!!

Don't know if anyone has come across the site called RemoveVirus.*** and I haven't put the link in just in case it's a threat itself.

But it goes on for several pages of security suites that have GUI's that look awfully similar to ones we use - one looks very much like the Kaspersky ISS and another the AVG.

Does anyone know of this site and if it's genuine then it would be a good reference for folks looking for a good security site and NOT download any of the ones listed.

Thanks

Thanks you folks - yes I always go to the official site I was just concerned that some poor unsuspecting individual might just be taken in by them as they do look alike.

Plus I was taking in the number of pondlives around at the moment, - just spent some time in getting rid of some stuff on a used machine that I suspect the previous owner had downloaded that included a rootkit (heaps of porn site cookies had to be cleared).
