OEM is cheaper.

But look at the URL, me thinks it's dodgy.

Although I don't want to jump to conclusions.

Powerless - after your view I found this comment click here. Looks like a scam and my dream of a bargain almost made me fall for it. I should remember (if it look s too good to be true, it probably is".

with the proverbial 40ft bargepole

It is obviously dodgy,as Powerless said look at the URL, also you are being asked to place your credit card details on an unsecure page - need I say more?

Thanks guys. I feel so stupid. Unbelievably cheap software and I all I need to do is send my credit card number on an insecure link to Russia.....

  pipedream 22:29 09 May 2004
