  • Prediction - On - Monday 18th of January 2038 10:14:07 PM - the internal clock on many PC will change from 0x7fffffff to 0x80000000 and depending on how the software treats the number it may change the time to - Friday 13th of December 1901 03:45:52 PM - or not. Hopefully by that time all real computes will be 64bit and the issue goes away. But beware for 32 bit computers this is going to be a much bigger problem than the Y2K issue! And yes Y2K did have some major fallout - NORAD was blind for hours! Some NSA computers were down for days!

      Be careful how one sets up this application. When it finds a virus is pops up a window and plays audio asking what one wants to do with the virus and STOPS! Very anoying when one is tring to sleep checking over a million files on large drive - an overnight process. I would prefer it completed the scan and then waited quietly for the user to respond.
