    I always check amazon.com before buying software, because they sometimes have great deals not found elsewhere.

    I just now checked something there, & ran across a great price for PC-Cillin 2004: $17.99 after rebate. To get the rebate, you must be upgrading from Norton or an old version of PC-C. Rebate dies on 12/31/04.

    I'm not interested, but thought maybe someone here might be. Here's the link...

    You might wan't to wait, I'm beta testing the soon to be released TM PC-Cillin Internet Security 2005 and I find it to be much improved over 2004. Not quite as ugly either! ;)

    It was by invitation only, I would post some screenshots but think that would violate the confidentially agreement. I can say it has a MUCH improved interface (the orange is gone for starters), *new* updater, *new* privacy controls, better spyware detection (go figure huh? :)), *new* windows vulnerability checker, *new* turbo scan feature (smiliar to the way kaspersky 5 scans, if its done it before and it hasen't changed it gets skipped.), improved installer (firewall is not installed by default anymore and neither are the anit-spam or email checker controls) and a lot more!

    You won't be disappoint with the version!

    It sounds much improved. I had PC-Cillin 2003 and really liked it until I (and two others at just about the same time) found and reported to Trend a terrible bug in tmproxy.exe. Trend first said they would issue a patch quickly then said instead they would fix it in the 2004 version which was about to go into beta at the time the bug was discovered. I had to stop using PCC because of the bug and I had 6 months left on my license. Sadly, it was not fixed in 2004. Do you know if it is fixed for 2005? (This bug caused gradual corruption of tmproxy.exe forcing a reboot about every 8 hours of internet use otherwise the results from the corruption made it impossible to surf. Those who turned off their boxes overnight usually didn't surf long enough before shutting down to see the effects of the bug. But it was quite a bug for those of us who never turn off our computers, surf a lot and don't reboot often).

    Does the beta allow for updating the pattern files?

    Does the turbo scan feature attach ADS tags to all files using NTFS? Can the feature be declined?
