  • Question

  • I work for a local council and last year we all went to hot desking and being able to work from home and still hook up to the councils network. Recently I received in my email account at work from mirosoft <hup.uk@digitalriver.com

    It claimed that as I worked in a local council I was entitled to use the above program at home for a payment of £8.95. I paid the money.

    I have tried to download the program but it stalls at 40% I further see that I have to disable my Firewall and anti- virus software. so far I have not disabled the anti software.

    As I am having trougle downloading the program I am a little worried that it may be if fact a sham and they are trying to plant a bug in my computer or just a con.

    Could anyone please clarify if this a genuine product offer or not?

    Thank for any advice
