    Is it just me or is anyone else annoyed by these finally fast.com tv spots? It's one of those online virus things for PC computers, but the low budget terrible commercial shows people using macs, an iMac and iBook to be specific. The commercial even says at the bottom of the screen that the product is for PC computers only. I know I shouldn't let little things like this get to me, but it just ticks me off. Not sure if the spots run outside of the US, so some of you probably have no idea what I'm talking about. Anyhow, thanks for letting me vent. I feel better now. :)

    They probably picked to have apple computers in the commercial because they couldn't find any attractive PCs. ;).

    Yes, I love how they superimpose XP onto the screens.

    That youtube ad is way longer than what their actually showing on TV and has other computers in it, but it does show the iMac and iBook to which I am referring.

    Seriously, I could've made a better commercial with iMovie.

    Who pays those clowns to make the commercial?

    This may sound mean but whoever downloads that program as means for a fast fix for their machines deserves to have malware added to their registry. Especially those who don't know about AdAware, SpyBot, or Registry Cleaner.

    Of course that is my opinion.

    They play them in Australia and they are annoying. What's worse is that the software they're selling doesn't actually do anything other than display fake problems that you need to pay one of their people to fix.

    Look around Google, you should a blog post somewhere where they put it all to the test on a new system.

    Presumably the same clowns who write the software.
