Yes, it's fear and ignorance that keep people religiously shelling out thier hard earned cash for these worthless 'wares. I've been saying for years that the biggie AV companies are probably the ones spreading a virus. It's like the mafia - you're paying for potection, but they're the ones you need protection from!
I find it ridiculous that someone would pay ANY amount of money for something like that. I dont know how many times I've found virii on PCs that are "up to date" with a bigname AV. Free stuff found more. Hmph. :)
Now they're trying to get on the Spyware/Malware removal bandwagon. It's really kind of sad, because the detection routines suck - nothing even CLOSE to what AdAware or Spybot would find. If it manages to detect (something) then the person thinks they have a virus. It's plain stupid. They try to bundle everything into one major sucky resource hog and sell it to someone on a "subscription" basis.
The whole scam makes me sick. If people werent paying the antivirus companies - i bet there would be less viruses-heh- supply  & demand.
