Always on the lookout for interesting new security software, I recently came across an interesting new security concept.

The weather here in Southeast Texas has been rainy and a bit dreary for the past several days. Clouds overhead are gray and threatening, and we’ve had a good bit of rain. The inclement weather has kept folks from doing much of what they love.

Q. I hope you can assist me with this problem. I purchased a car from a dealer that purchases vehicles from auctions for re-sale. The vehicle was purchased under a contract that said it was “as is” and did not come with a warranty. It has been two days since the date of purchase, and this vehicle now has major problems.
