    Default How important is security to the average user?

    On this forum, you have a group of people who are keenly aware of security threats, malware etc. However, in my business, I deal with business computer users who are under the impression it won't happen to them. Most of their objection is cost related-I'm gonna charge more the deeper I construct the lockdown. Does anyone have any clients or friends who are NOT security enthusiasts and have been a victim of malware, viruses, identity theft? I'm looking for instances of users feeling invulnerable to security risks and then having a security incident. Again, the usual objection is cost. In my opinion, security is an investment. What do you guys think?

    To clarify, which version of Spybot-S&D are you using for this.

    This particular case I am not using spybot. I can only use software the client has license(s) or has a preference for and I only distribute software that I am authorized to distribute .This is more a general security question. The coolest thing about spybot is that I can run to my own computer and generally find an example of the problem(s) I am facing somewhere in these forums.

    The intention of this forum is not for:
    • Malware removal procedures, fixes, tools etc which are not up for discussion, trained volunteer analysts assist in removing infections not cleaned by normal methods. Thank you for understanding.
