Fail to cancel however and you might regret ever making that single mouse click. Shortly after the three-day trial expires you’ll see a pop-up bill appear on your computer’s desktop, telling you that you owe MBS £39.99 for your first quarter’s membership. If you do nothing the bill will keep appearing at regular and ever-increasing intervals until eventually your computer will be virtually unusable. The bills are being generated by software which has downloaded to your computer, and there’s nothing you can do about it, except pay up and cancel your subscription via MBS. They identify your computer by its IP address, which was logged when you entered the website involved.

But what about those who enlist antivirus software to remove the MBS product? MBS says it is considering legal action against Jacques Erasmus of Prevx, following comments he made previously in the Guardian about the company; it wants to stop Prevx's product from removing its software. Symantec - which sells the Norton security products - has already agreed to such demands.
