    Hello
    I have many problem with the Antispam module - a part of TrendMicro Internet Security 2008. Antispam doesn't support switching between others users in OE. It hangs OE and generates many problems. I write to TM and they told that know about this and they still working about this. It' was 2 months ago.... I'm using TM before 2004.... This version is the worse version of TMIS which has been tested by my.
    Steve - do you have any good informations for my?

    Indeed, TM 2008 has been improved a lot compared to version 2007. I don't notice any slowdown. Even scanning engine is fast. However, its detection rate is a bit more than average

    Did you read any reliable test on this one?
    Curious to see what it can do. If it became any better

    The 2007 slowed my boxes greatly. The 2008 would have had to be reinvented to not slow your computer. The other problem is mediocre (at best) detection and high memory usage.

    thanks, I'll have to give it a look since I used it but not since 2005, my wife used it 2006. I am curious about detection as it did get me in at the end of 2005 letting in a trojan, mem usage does consern me as does boot time but I'll give it a trial see if I like it thanks again...

    Decisions, decisions o_O

    I have just gotten an email from Trend Micro inviting me to become a member of PUG (Power Users Group). I had wanted this back during the three years I was a beta tester for them. Being a member includes some nice perks. But I had made up my mind on settling with Symantec.

    I hate decisions like this :(

    Norton has much higher detection rates. I have used Norton, TM, and NOD32 which I am currently using because of lightness on my machine, detection, and advanced heuristics. Unless TM has reinvented the wheel, I would stay away from it perks and all.

    Well, it is all moot anyway. I found out that TMIP '08 isn't compatible with Vista's SP1 beta which I am running at the moment. NIS '08 had no problem with it.

    I've never tried Trend so can't comment from personal experience. My local computer guru though will use only Trend Micro on his personal PC's. He doesn't sell software, but if someone asks that's what he recommends. He says it's the only AV he'll put on his kids (both early teen boys) PC's and it's saved him lots of work cleaning their computers of viruses.

    I run AVG free at the moment, while debating reinstalling Blink.

    More likely he uses the Parental Control features that can block various websites!!! although I would doubt what he says about viruses, in my case PC-cillian 07 let virus's on to the PC then only reported them at a scan, which is the main reason I've gone elsewhere.
