After all, we can get flu shots and drink lots of orange juice, but orange juice just gums up computer keyboards, so we tend to look to software solutions for protection.

More than just a bug-killer, eSafe incorporates a "sandbox" where suspect files can be opened and run without jeopardizing your system.
