" Dear Dennis,

Thank you so much for all your hard effort in reviewing our products, Registry Mechanic and Spyware Doctor. We have received quite a bit of positive feedback from your web site visitors, as I am sure you have as well.

At this time, I want to let you know that PC Tools has just released a ground breaking new freeware product called 'Hijack Guard' that protects PC users from the next generation of Web hijacker [Spyware] threats. Hijack Guard detects and disables these threats on the shoppers PC, protecting both the shopper and the commercial website.

The latest web hijacker threats target average online shoppers as they browse the worlds largest search engines, online stores, news sites, software download sites or any other popular sites. These threats burrow deep into the user's PC, often concealing themselves from detection, and insert their own web links when shoppers view targeted content or search for particular topics. When the shoppers mistakenly click on the illegitimate link, the browser is directed to another, often undesirable site in its place.

We estimate as much as 20% of a given site's traffic can be redirected to another site chosen by the hijacker. The redirected site could be obscene, fraudulent, and there is nothing that can de done about it from the web site as the threat itself is housed on the users PC.

An ordinary key word search could result in a link that takes you to the Spyware's fraudulent site. These faulty links are programmed to replace the top results in search engines and do not look any different than other links on the same page. Additionally, these fraudulent links affect not only the online shopper but also the companies whose customers are stolen from them.

I can not emphasize how potentially damaging these new generation web hijackers could be to your search marketing, shopping carts and online stores. You are welcome to freely distribute Hijack Guard on your website, to your client base, other websites, publishers, ISP's and so on.

It would be greatly appreciated if you could pass on the word to your subscribers. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. "
