    Trend Micro's "PC-cillin Internet Security" is one of the best anti-virus programs right now alongwith Kaspersky and NOD32! I've been using it for eight months now, and haven't had a single virus since!

    The built-in spyware protection is able to detect and remove the "CoolWebSearch" trojan even!

    That's amazing!

    :)

    I renewed my TMIS 2005 last month, and just went back to using it a few days ago. Just after I renewed, I found out that TMIS is coming out in November. I called TM's tech support to find out if I will be able to upgrade to TMIS 2006 since I just renewed my TMIS 2005 license. He assured me that I will be able to upgrade. All I had to do is uninstall TMIS 2005 and install TMIS 2006 using my license key. He said if I had any problems to give them a call. That's what I call good service. :D From what I see in Sher's screenshots, I'm looking forward to November. :)

    From what I've heard from some tester - "lower" than its predecessor! Program installation and virus scanning have improved as well! That's good news!

    Don't worry, mate... you'll be able to use the newer version with the same serial number that you're using currently.

    I may try tmis 2006 when it comes out on october 31. That is, if it's "windowsMe" compatible. One website states that it's compatible with 98, me, 2000, and xp. Another site says only windows 2000 and xp. :rolleyes:

    I like "windowsMe". However, it may be time to upgrade to xp. I notice a lot of software is only compatible with 2000 and xp now.

    I too liked Windows Me a lot, but it kinda makes sense.....newer technology just does not work as well on Windows 98/Me as compared to Windows 2000/XP.

    And since XP is increasingly gaining popularity among users, it would make financial sense of companies to not support Win98/Me anymore (especially since MS no longer actively supports them).

    I tried to run Doom 3 on Windows Me - I succeeded, but the textures looked VERY low-resolution. Didn't look as good as it was supposed to. Now I use Windows XP, and am VERY satisfied with it. :)

    Back to the topic, I personally think that Win98 support may be dropped, but Windows Me, and maybe Windows 98SE support will remain. But this may be the very last version of TMIS to support Win98/Me, because MS totally discontinues support for Win98/Me in 2006.....

    If it's says it's compatible with Windows 98 than it's also compatible with Windows Me. Same arhitecture, just enhanced interface and other things.
    Core is still good old Win9x.

  18. Hopefully that is just a bad quality screenshot, because frankly I think that's kind of ugly.

    Alot of talk about wanting this . Remember , this was not exactly a HUGE hit as far as protection is concerned , back in the 2005 version . I think the screenshots look nice . I really do . But , how good will it be ? It needs to be better than 2005 . Try not to get caught up in the looks of the interface . Though , I would love the interface .

    Hello Fellow Creatures,
    The GUI does look nice. Like Hollywood said protection is the most important issue and still do not see any resource useage numbers. Has potential for a suite user. ;)

    I don't know what the resources are on TMIS 2006 but the usage of 2005 are over twice what my Nav internet security 2005 is. I have also liked PC-Cillin until I really checked the processor use it consumes. Just the TMproxy module uses between 45000 and 61000 you add all of the other modules in there and that is a lot of resource usage. Where as my Nav is useing 47000 total for all modules. I think I will pass on the new TMIS.

    I have to admit, if you look at AV-Comparatives, TMIS doesn't do as well as NAV or McAfee, but I guess I can live with that.

    It does tend to slow my computer down a lot at boot up. I remember now, that was the reason I uninstalled it the first time I used it. I'm going to keep running it until TMIS 2006 comes out and go from there.

    It doesn't slow down even the slowest of PC's. Like, I'm running it on P3 1 GHz with 376MB, for eight months now and yet my machine doesn't freeze, slow down or make noises. That says it all as far as the performance is concerned!

    NAV is the worst program in the history. It's a big virus itself! Full stop!

    My personal opinion, on PC-cillin is, that if you've it installed, you don't have any chance of getting a malware in teh first place. Visit porn sites, crack sites, or whatever, you keep rollin' with it. Such is my confidence with its reliablity now that I keep it OFF most of the times yet I don't get anything. Why? :D

    It's right up there among the best with Kaspersky and NOD32. The rest are below that league.

    I am currently using Pc-Cillin Internet Security 2005 on Windows XP with 512 MB and a Pent 3. I find that it has been very good in protecting my Pc against Viruses and Trojans, It did catch one earlier this year.
    My Question is this I called up Trend yesterday ( what a pleasure to talk to someone in virus support for free and in less then 3 minutes waiting time)and asked the Tech Support Person when PC-Cillin Internet Security06 will be out,she said November 1. And the new Version will contain a spyware scanner, phishing scanning or blocking and a toolbar on IE if you want it(it can be disabled she told me.
    I:d like to know if using Trends new version which seems more like a suite is a good idea or possibbly try these sceneraio's out.

    Kav06 with Zone Alarm Free Version? or Nod 32 With ZA Free?

    I am concerned that the new version of Pc-Cillin Internet Security 2006 will be more of a resource eater.
    I am very happy with the 05 version it did not use that much resources.
    Any advice would be much appreciated.Thanks alot.

    Hi Zee

    Why not the Kaspersky Internet Suite 2006? It will contain the same things as the Trend suite and doesn't use a lot of resources, from november 1 you can try the official beta for free until it goes gold in jan/2006, well actually you can already try it, but these are pre-beta builds, so best to wait for the official beta.:)
