    From the description, it seems similar to SiteAdvisor. Siteadvisor seems to rely on user information, though. Is TrendProtect similar and how accurate is it.


    http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/free_security_tools/trendprotect.php

    On occasion, SiteAdvisor will give an exclamation point to a site that's clean, and on other occasions will give a green checkmark to sites that contain some questionable downloads.

    I'd like to switch and get rid of the SiteAdvisor nag screen if TrendProtect is a superior BHO.

    I have used TrendProtect for a couple weeks. It does not seem to slow down browsing or going from one search result page to the next. As a negative, it doe not give the detailed info SiteAdvisor does. But overall I like it better than SA.

    Thanks for the info. I think I'll try it with IE6 while continuing to use Siteadvisor for Firefox. I just have to remember what the CLSID string is for the BHO that it's going to add, so that when I run Hijackthis, I won't get alarmed at seeing a new one.:)

    I'm waiting till it comes out of beta. Not much of a beta tester.

    Hi, folks: Why do'nt you upgrade to IE7, which is equipped w/ automatic website cheching ability. I believe this feature is at par as TrendProtect or site advisor.

    IE7 only has antiphishing, i think TrendProtect and Site Advisor can beyond that.

    I have IE7. But I don't use the antiphishing tool as it seems more of a trackware mechanism for M$ than it is an antiphishing tool. If I ran an antiphishing tool it would be Comodo's.
