    Not worth the price for a resource hog!
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    I think you all know my views on anti-virus programs. I am anti-anti-virus, and yet not pro-virus.

    Surely this is spam and should be removed.

    Because two moderators, administrator and several senior members had read and responded to it so I guessed that they probably thought it legit.

    Wrong. What we responded to was a legal advertisement by one of our forum paid advertisers. Besides, that post was made in August of 2014. What you saw was a spammer who tagged on to the original post that was over a year old. The spam post was made today.
