FREE Active Security Monitor
Do you know how safe your PC is while you are IMing or on the web? To help AIM members protect themselves from online security threats, we are offering a new program called Active Security Monitor.
Active Security Monitor checks out all the major elements you need to stay safe online, including:
* Anti-Virus software

* Anti-Spyware software

* Firewall protection

* Wireless security

* Operating System updated

* Web Browser Plugins and Patches Installed

* Back-up software status

* PC Optimized
 If Active Security Monitor finds a weak spot in your security, it suggests ways to fix the problem. ASM even sends you a message if some new situation crops up. How easy is that?

What do you think?
