Free Shaw Secure Upgrade

Shaw Secure is a complimentary anti-virus program for Shaw Internet customers. Shaw is
transitioning anti-virus providers from F-Secure to McAfee. The transition process will be
completed on November 15, 2012. This means that Shaw Secure customers using
F-Secure software must download the new McAfee software to remain protected against
potential online security threats.

Please note: Your F-Secure software may be cancelled before this date. If this occurs, a pop-up window
will appear on your computer screen. Please obtain the complimentary new software immediately.
