    It`s not that I don`t trust it because it`ll do something to my PC, it`s because it`s trying to tell you your PC is insecure based on some very tenuous information and most likely wants you to buy their product based on scare tactics. YOUR PC IS CONNECTED TO EVERY OTHER PC IN THE WHOLE WOLRD!!! Oh noes!!! Argh!!! Panic!!!

    It seems pretty solid. So far it`s told me that my firewall kicks ass because all probes for my computer have come back with results that seem to show that it doesn`t exist

    If you`re running XP with SP2, there`s no way this thing can infiltrate your computer.

    I like the off hand compliments if your computer is stealthy "very unusual for a PC" or "This is actually pretty cool"
