Why is it ok?
« on: November 23, 2013, 03:51:19 PM »
Why is it ok to buy Antivirus products while the companies selling them are NOT prepared to stand behind their product? (eg: back their claims that they can protect the user by giving warranty/guarantee etc)?

No one is forced to buy/use/etc...

You may call it claims, they may call advertising.

Like...

Fairness cream, supplements, etc...................................

Manyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy things in the world claim/advert this way.

Nothing is forced, its your choice.

;)Its hard to find the right ones when the wrong ones are so sexy;)

Once upon a time if something was claimed in advertising it had to be deemed to be true and correct, otherwise it was regarded as false advertising (With penalties).
This was rather broadly known for most of the world and the way it should be.

Legal and moral rights and obligations with advertising appears to be wiped in recent times, extraordinary claims true or not seemed to be greatly accepted now.
This does not make it OK or correct, it just means we have become more forgiving about this for some reason.

No we are not forced, but we are at times greatly misled.
Just my thoughts.

I can only think of 2 reasons:

1. AV Vendors misleading consumers to make them think they are purchasing "protection" (which we all know is not really protection).
2. Everybody purchase a "protection" knowing that its not 100% effective (none of them).

I think point number 2 is the strongest. Sadly, we live in a reality: there is no 100% perfect and bullet proof product.
So why would they blame vendors?

What happens to your computer when a brand new file that happens to be a malware that Norton doesn't recognize turns up on your computer?

"protection the clean system" & "cleaning the infected PC" are two different things  8)
