    Trojan scanners definitely have a future as most virus scanners are behind in both detection and removal of trojans. Consider what a virus scanner will do if it does find a trojan on a system: It will alert the user and block file access. Most users will have no clue how to proceed from here. Trojan scanners, of course, specialize in trojans and malware that is running on a system and will be able to deal with them in a way that virus scanners can't at the moment.

    I also know of no virus scanner that performs registry, memory and port scans like TrojanHunter does. This of course means less opportunity to detect trojans by the traces they leave in the registry and elsewhere.

    Might just be a good move Triple ! HIPS are also great IF your system is clean . Remember that . If I am not mistaken , it is $ 20 a year ? That is not bad IF it can deliver . Can it beat out the free scans by Ewido and A2 , along with your AV ? I have used TH before but , was not really impressed . Only an opinion . Although , I think the developer is really great . I am considering a one year deal just to see how it fares against what I already use . Besides . If Triple dude is gonna try it , maybe I owe ya one . After all , you went with a couple of my suggestions !:D :cool:

    Um . Ok . I hear all the talk about being subscription based . I thought I read , MORE THAN ONCE , that it is $ 20 a year . The developer is already talking about version 5 . Where am I going with this ? Why the Hell does his site show it for $ 49 o_O? Holy cow . All the talk about the future yet , the developer cannot update the site ? Hmmm . Not good in my opinion . Actually , it is truly sad . Unless what I am hearing is wrong . Maybe the yearly $ 20 fee is NOT a real thing . So , what the heck ? How much is it . I do not think it matters to me now though . Too many discrepencies . OR , am I to believe that you pay $ 49 up front for the first year and $ 20 each year there after ? My goodness ! So much confusion about a security software . Guess I will just say good luck with this as I cannot make heads nor tales from what I am seeing . After searching HARD on the site , it tells of subscription based starting on May 1 . So , should we wait til then to save $ $ 30 ? AGGGHHHHH .

    http://forum.misec.net/board/Announcements/1138629799 should explain it for you.

    Acouple of questions occur to me:

    (1) Why wouldn't you go to the source (the TH website) to get your information to start with (posts #1 and #3 in that thread by Magnus seem pretty self-explanatory to me)?

    (2) Why would you be considering TH at all if you were "not really impressed" with it to begin with?

    Very curious. Pete

    I think that is the way it will work... It's kinda like NOD32 you pay $39 once for the initial purchase and then your yearly renewal subsription is discounted.

    Thanks NAMOR . Still makes little sense though .
    So , if I wait until May 1st , it will still be the original $ 49 ? Then $ 20 after that ? I take it that is what you are saying . Thank you very much for the help .

    The price comes up as $49, do you need to login first?

    The first post from Magnus indicates that a year's subscription would be $19.95 with a discount offered to existing users between May 1 and June 1. On the webpage it indicates that you now receive 37% off the new version 4.5 for a one year subscription (58% off a 2-year subscription). I am confused. Do I wait until between May 1 and June 1 or is this offer replacing the original post of a discount off $19.95? $30.87 (37%) is a lot different than a discount on a 1 year $19.95 subscription.

    Hi Magnus,

    So, if I am understanding the policy for existing customers....current subscribers will receive TH for $12 if they renew for one year......and for a total of $16, they will be covered with a two year subscription - is that correct?

    I also noticed that there was an option for "more than 1" copy (under the two year license).....so if someone bought TWO "2 year renewals"...that would actually be 4 years for a total of $32 - correct?

    No, 2 two-year renewals would renew your subscription for two computers (for two years).
