First post from husband of one, father of four, grandpa of six.


Born in the USA, moved to Oz in 1971, married an Australian, for many years a happy Aussie and no longer a US citizen.


Retired IT manager, VB6 programmer and Novell CNE.


Attracted to CryptoPrevent by its VB6 moniker.  Will upgrade to Premium shortly.


Will have a look at the Hitman product based on comments on this forum.  Thinking CryptoPrevent + Hitman + Windows Defender, plus a VPN connection and email encryption where they're necessary, will be satisfactory for security in an uncertain world.


Very much appreciate what I have read on this site about security issues, particularly from moderators.

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy
