I say please don't do your thread titles in ALL CAPS. I'm getting tired -- and mildly annoyed -- at having to lowercase or titlecase each and every one of them. I think you know why I ask this -- ALL CAPS = shouting -- so I do hope I won't have to mention this again.

Thank you for your cooperation. :)

Understood and that's all I ask. If you use it when it's called for no one has a problem with it and I'm a happy moderator. If you use it all the time then ... there are problems. Nuff said.

Webroot does not care about you. Webroot does not care about the health of your computer.

Webroot only cares about making a profit by selling their services.

I'm sure everybody knows that casino software is often reported as a virus. For all the legitimate casino software out there, it's a 'false positive' - it's not a virus, it's a mistake made by the anti-virus company.

Look at the bottom of that link you posted, it says :

AllSlots.exe – detected by 7 out of 41 antivirus scanners as GAME/Casino.Gen; W32/Casino.P.gen!Eldorado
That's a false positive. There's no virus.

Webroot knows perfectly well there's no virus in that file, but that wouldn't be a very interesting story would it?

Just like the mainstream media, it's more exciting to sensationalize a story. It increases pageviews, and it's "link bait" - it attracts links, just like the one you posted above.

More links = more visitors = more sales = more profit for Webroot. Who cares about the truth, so long as you can sell more products?

Yes the spam sucks, and it's most likely from unscrupulous affiliates, but it has nothing to do with viruses like Webroot are claiming. The software from these reliable casino sites is safe just like always.
