I really dislike those programs on the internet that says that it would scan your PC for free and after you’ve downloaded the darn thing, it charges you a fee to fix registry errors, remove junk files, viruses and spyware (Why did they leave that part out in their ad? I would safely speculate that if they were to mention it in their ad, people would think twice about downloading the program).
How many of those programs are trustworthy? There is so much online fraud these days that it is a little difficult to know who to trust; especially where online credit card transactions are involved.
May I also point out, that some things are not always what they set out to be; for example: a virus or spyware could be disguised as an antivirus and antispyware program (I need not say more, because you and I know what happens to a person’s computer when they download malicious programs).
