    When I was downloading the free trial, I got a warning from Norton Internet Security,
    the file ftruck.exe and ftruck dedicated.exe contain both the virus
    Suspicious.MH690.A
    Did anybody have the same experience or is my Internet Security software a bit over sensitive.

    False positive, nothing to worry about.

    Norton is amongst the AV softwares that gives easily false positives. I wouldn't use Norton in the first place, but that's just imo.

    I use Norton Internet Security and i had the same problem with both GSC and Ftruck.
    The good thing is that you can easily recover and exclude them from future alerts , because sometimes when Norton find a file as "high risk" , you can't recover at all.

    Norton is almost thinking itself is a virus.

    No but kept getting error messages, and could not get even through Part 1. (Trial) Had Trend A/V disabled. I have installed several older sims w/ no problems.

    I am thinking about trying to just buy, but my laptop's specs are between the Minimum and Recommended and only have 256MG Dedicated Video, 4gbRAM, 2.3ghz Processor......W7 64bit

    I run RSRBR, and a few Simbin titles, NKP fine, but not sure about this.

    I am a pc noob. Do you think I would be happy with it running on this? I really want it, but just can't afford to waste money.

    Based on how the Simbin games work, I have the feel FTruck runs a little smoother on my system. So, >>I<< say you won't have lag with your laptop.
    Let's wait for others' opinions:) The more you know the better you can decide.
