Geek super hero.

OK so it’s got a weird name. Whatever. But the Geek Super Hero proggie actually looks quite useful. ‘It watches dozens and dozens of important settings on your computer and warns you if any program has changed them. This catches many of the changes a virus, worm, or trojan program will make to your computer and lets you immediately fix them back! [sic] Plus Geek Superhero includes a lot of other useful features like a Popup blocker and more!’ £13.98.
