Wow, I'm glad Prevx was on the job. ::)
Me too!!!  :D  And thank goodness for Avast for scanning everything after wards, and my other handy list of tools that I keep on-demand.  It's better to be prepared.

Me neither. I think I will stick with Private Firewall as it's been working great with avast :D

I think they are learning a valuable lesson after having shot themselves in the foot; it isn't advisable to dump your previously loyal customers if you hope to convert them into purchasers of the planned PCTools Security Suite ;D

Mind you this wouldn't be the first time Symantec did this buy a product and promptly drop support for it, its what I love about Symantec (NOT).

Loyalty? To Symantec? Impossible...

No, previous loyal PCTools users, that no doubt Symantec hoped to get to pay for the new PCTools Security Suite product.

Actually, I haven't gotten over what Symantec did to the venerable Sygate Personal firewall. Just another reason why I won't go back to PCTFW. As I said, I'm quite happy now with Private Firewall and, I should thank PC Tools for inadvertently steering me in that direction. As of now Avast and Private firewall, my favorite combo..  ;D
