LOL! It's good for some people. Twice I had nasty spyware and had to take in the old computer to get cleaned, total cost about $250. More than what the 1997 486 was worth. It had a Trojan that the previous owner implanted and never ran scans to kill it! I learned my lesson and also bought that "Alpha Shield." So far so good.
