EMAIL and/or TWITTER NOTIFICATION OF IDENTIFIED THREATS

One of the features I've been begging for over the last few years is a means to have PCs send notifications to an email address if a threat is identified on it.  I have a child in college with her laptop off my home network;  I'd like to know if she picked up a virus on that laptop so I can fix it (as well as to make sure its fixed before she brings it home back onto my network).

Another option might be to allow use of a twitter account, so a notification can be sent that way.

This is a security product for consumers and currently intended for novice users . What are these ideas from you - Twitter notifications ?! This will make the product bloatware. This is a securoty software , not something to have fun with.

Twitter = Easy way to get SMS messaging without configuring a phone service.  You can do the same with email, but as a consumer product people would recognize Twitter a lot faster.

As for being bloatware, I completely disagree.  You think coding the ability to send an email is bloatware?  Really??

Please cool the flames.  What providing an email notification will do is support a home user with multiple PCs in the house, including laptops that may be used outside of the home network.  It allows the "administrator" in the household (the guy / gal that installs NIS) to know when a machine has been infected, without having to look at all three machines periodically.
