clicked on the full service scan, it tells me this!!



Whoops. The scanner doesn’t work with your Web browser or operating system.

You need Windows XP Home Edition, Windows XP Professional, Windows 2000 Professional, Windows Server 2003, or Windows 2000 Server to use the scanner. You also need either Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0, or MSN® 9.0.



What can you do?

· Get the latest version of Internet Explorer (free download)

· Upgrade your operating system

· Get PC help in the Community

If you know what you're doing, you won't need such a service.

But for people who don't know, it would come in handy.

Have given it a quick run, and it seems fine. Whether it is an improvement on my normal computer security routine is yet to be proved (ie. does it find something my AV and other utilities don't find)I suspect it is just an alternative to Trend Micro or Pitstop.
Still it is good to know.
