ScanGuard

After seeing a, supposed, news item on the Microsoft Windows 10 app, I downloaded and installed this programme, which was trumpeted as offering free licenses on all my devices until March 3rd. Yes, the scan was free but, to get rid of the supposed malware, which incidentally F-Secure hadn't picked up, a license had. to be bought.

I now realise, thanks to a Goodish TV programme, that there are adverts interspersed with genuine news stories. The old adage is very true, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't.

Don't you mean "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."?

Here's another one: "If you get a product for free, then you are the product."
