6:32 PM - Advertising in software
Today, I got an ad from my antivirus software for a useless utility product. I hate ads in software I have purchased. I can deal with it in games when it's product placement to a degree to cover costs like servers for multiplayer. However, when I bought antivirus software from a SECURITY company, I expect it to be free of bullshit.
My product expires in October so I'm going to try out the free Microsoft security essentials software then instead of buying an AV program. I haven't found one virus the entire year which means either I'm at a low thread level or the software didn't work. Either way, I don't see the point of spending $50 to protect our 3 inferior Windows boxes.

This will block mail with the following subjects. Anyone who knows me will avoid these! As my spam load increases, I have to do dumb things to avoid looking at it! /dev/null can enjoy it.
