  1. Yep, I installed it on one computer client I have replacing Avast which just became too annoying and disturbing in the last version. I also hope MSE becomes available for WHS both V1 and V2, since Avast seems out of market for WHS and no new version since december 2008.

Review: DREDGE

DREDGE is a peaceful and beautiful fishing simulator that's occasionally broken up by eldritch abominations from the deep. Thoroughly enjoyable!
