SparkTrust: You've still not learnt then?

Yet another instance of misleading advertising by SparkTrust was found a few minutes ago, this time via Google Adwords (surprise surprise).

And the site you're pointed to, also fails miserably, to notify you that the program is NOT free, that you HAVE TO PAY FOR IT, before it'll actually do anything other than scan.

You'd have thought these companies would've learnt by now, but sadly not, and I doubt they'll change as long as there's money to be made from vulnerable and gullible victims.
