Privacy, Security, Encryption It's no secret that I'm not a particular fan of antivirus software vendors. Other than the excellent Microsoft offering, I haven't yet seen a single antivirus program that doesn't suck the life out of computers, infesting every corner, making machines slow and full of annoying pop-ups. Still, a single license key for Avast! Pro being shared 774651 times? That's a bit harsh.

If people were told in 1995 they would need permanently running virus scanners crawling through all their files and memory to survive, they may have thrown out Windows early enough.

Why do say that? I mean what's changed sins 95? computers running Windows 95 needed anti virus software to.
