I guess I'm obliged to say, "I know I haven't been here in a while, and it's nice to post again," but now lets get to what I want to talk about.

So I just saw a commercial for this FinallyFast.com thing and it made my inner skeptic spring into action. I did a quick search of the forum and noticed that nobody had posted anything about them, so I figured I'd post. I checked them out and apparently it is a total scam that scans your computer and finds imaginary viruses, malware, and spyware and then prompts you to buy their product to "fix" a problem that never even existed in the first place. According to some of the sites I checked, the scanning program itself IS adware. Now, I know most of us here are Mac users and will never need to worry about our computers slowing down , but there are probably some Windows users here that might try something like FinallyFast.com. In the end, if you're fed up with a slow PC, don't buy into these scams, clean your PC the old fashioned way or, you know, get a Mac.

As a side note: Many of the computers in the commercial are Macs with the Apple logo covered and XP superimposed on the screen. I laughed pretty hard when one of the horrendously poor actors in the commercial got the blue screen of death on a Macbook.
