Sorry, long day at work, and sensing impending security nightmare after
being paid to proport that some magic "Security center" that slaps onto
windows could in fact be secure (while it's in teh handbook that things
like CoolWWW and such actually disable exactly those countermeasures and
block access to sites that have tools to remove them).

figuring that out as a challenge for the reader, or someone else can
hand him the answer sheet.
