    My english or understanding is probably way below this.

    And I believe you are mixing apples and .. Ummm .. Bananas.

    And what does that have to do with (quoting you): "the company next door and
    the people I know dont see a need for a virus program to protect THEIR A$200

    business ..."
    From your previous post?

    Allowing any access to sensitive machine and data is, obviously, wrong. But
