Funny you should ask.  Following is more information about the prizes as well as the Contest Rules:

ESET is generously providing Scot's Newsletter Forums nine (9) individual ESET licenses.  Contest winners will be able to select one (1) of the following:

To add to the fun, Bill Pytlovany is generously providing Scot's Newsletter Forums three (3) individual WinPatrol PLUS licenses, to be awarded to three game-winning Highlanders!

Contest Rules:

  • Unless otherwise specified, only one prize per member.
    Note:  If you have already won or do not wish to claim a prize and still wish to play, do not respond in the topic.  Instead send your response via PM to a Moderator or Administrator.

Now that the formalities are out of the way, I'm sure you're wondering what you need to do to win one of the prizes.  We will be challenging you with fun trivia games -- a separate game per prize!  The first Highlander to post the correct answer will be the winner.   Watch this space for games to be posted!
