    "Probably the best free security list in the world"

    And a disclaimer to reckon with: "Many of these programs may harm your PC (especially when misused). Use at your own risk."

    I wonder if that's the same GIZMO as the fella who now is with Windows Secrets, Gizmo Richards. I was a subscriber to his newsletter when it was active. The Whois for that site says it's one Ian Richards in Oz. Same guy?

    The FAQ states: "Is this site related to Windows Secrets?

    No, Gizmo and this website have no ownership in Windows Secrets newsletter or their website and have no say in their editorial policy and management. And vice versa.

    People get confused on this as the Windows Sectets website does contain many freeware articles and recommendations that were originally published in Gizmo's old Support Alert newsletter. Windows Secrets obtained this material as a result of the merger of Support Alert with Windows Secrets newsletter in July 2008. Please note that some of this material has not been updated and may no longer reflect the view and opinions of Gizmo or this website.

    Additionally, as part of the newsletter merger, Gizmo agreed to write two new articles per month for Windows Secrets newsletter for a period of two years until July 2010. Despite being given the impressive title "Senior Editor", Gizmo's role at Windows Secrets is simply that of a writer."

    Confusing. In any case, the quality of the links doesn't seem up to par with the "Support Alert" newsletter.

    Thanks, Dennis. I didn't read the FAQ (RTFM?) but went looking at other places. So, it IS the same guy with a "not too warm" statement about his situation at Windows Secrets.

    I agree with your "overwhelmed" comment. There's a difference between "the best list of free security" and "a list of the best free security". It would be helpful to have fewer items, or some kind of guide about which are the best on the list, rather than just the most comprehensive list.
