      Actually, this is GOOD. It may end the SPECULATION and FAKE NEWS.

      Russia MUST do same. And Russia have the very best. Legendary, KASPERSKY.
      It is SO tested, that it became the BEST.
      Also, they give a lot of freebies. IF you have Kaspersky, and end paying the license, you still NOT alone. It will warn you of fake pages, attack pages and more. And still will give you free keys and support, FREE IF your data gets stolen and a ransom asked.
      I mean, you can't go wrong.
      An article at Sputnik spoke about a security firm in internet. DO NOT download that GARBAGE.
      It froze and even corrupt files in our test.
      Uni now refuse to download them.
      Kaspersky went thru the HARDEST of tests, the toughest , actually very unfair on KASPERSKY, false leads. It passed them when it was expected to TOTALLY FAIL!!
      Nothing is perfect, but this test is done by experts ONLY.
      I saw the up load and was surprised it came OFF. Most just get stuck and that's THAT!!
