    Ive not trusted Symantec for a few years now. Some of their previous releases had holes and it just wasnt symantec quality. This would have scared me as well as I wouldnt have bothered reading the fine print <G>

    Just to throw in the conspiracy theory...what if Symantec was hacked. Hacker sent that out for poops and giggles and then Symantec had to cover their butt with "just a test". How bad would it look for an anti-virus software company to get hacked? Oh snap.
