I haven't found what the special offer is -- I went to the site and haven't found anything unusual -- except their new firewall -- free trial.

What are you referring to?

personally, I would not buy a program unless I could try it first or get a recommendation from someone I trust. I could be wrong in this but I don't THINK there is a free trial available. I have talked to people about the Ad-Watch part of it and some like it and others don't. I realize that this is no help to you, it's just my 2 cents worth.

I got it free with my renewal, and turned it off pretty soon. I don't remember what the problem was but I did not like it.
