Do You Really Want To Know Why Your Antivirus Program Didn’t Protect You?

Faronics anti-executableI won’t say I’ve heard it all, but I have heard enough. Enough from customers that have asked me how did my computer get infected, I’ve got Norton, or McAfee, or whatever. Aren’t they some of the best virus and spyware protection products on the market?
