Pros Good Interface, Excellent Virus Detection, AntiFraud Wizard
Cons Firewall can be Improved
Summary Excellent Package.
I have previously used Norton and McAfee Internet Security packages and found Pc-cilling to be better than them.
It is better than Norton and McAfee. Fast and does not slow the computer's performance and does not utilize a lot of system resources like Norton and McAfee.
Clean and Fast Install.
AntiSpyware can be improved and Firewall should have more detailed options.
Pros Interface, installation
Cons Buggy, poor firewall, too simplistic, support sucks
Summary I decided to give Trend a try after trying Norton and McAfee for many years. All I can say is "Big Disappointment". For one thing, they have ZERO support. I thought McAfee and Symantec were bad..ugh. I couldn't even get a tech taht spoke english...I think I was routed to the Philippines. Anyway, aside from the support issues the Firewall is REALLY WEAK. It's barely better than XP SP2. Hard to configure and no advanced options. I also had numerous issues with updates..the updates came down, but it would alert me that it was out of date all the time. Just what I need, a program that can't even tell it's up to date.
Advice - if the price is too good to be true, it probably is. i.e. McAfee gives their products away, and Trend is ultra low cost. I went back to Norton...not perfect, but alot better than this.
Pros Good protection, good price, light on resources, worry free!
Cons None, quality product with no visible flaws
Summary Syamntec is bundled crap eating up your RAM and other resources.
ZoneAlarm has a whole user board full of problems and issues they are having! This security suite, out of all, is screwing up PC's left and right.
McAfee, holding symantecs hand in imbedding itself in your PC making it difficult for users to uninstall their software.
AVG, good but missing some important features.
PC-Cillin has the best of both worlds. I have run it through rigorous tests and it has passed them all with no exceptions. It's virus protection is excellent, firewall is effective, privacy is superb, and overall system performance is outstanding. Install and forget program that doesn't require users to keep making decisions about their security.
The little guys always come out on top! If you are considering changing to a software suite, consider PC-Cillin, and you won't have to worry weather your computer will start after installation.
Pros Easy to use
Cons Cannot delete all files at once
Summary When I run the system scan, it will pull up over a hundred cookies and other files. I cannot figure out how to delete them all at once. Having to click on each one, click the delete button, and then confirm with the Yes button is a real pain. Does anyone know how to delete all files at once?
Pros On top of new viruses.
Cons Way to difficult and time consuming to upgrade from 2005 version
Summary Spent three days with five PC-cilin technicians trying to install 2006 version. Needs numerous fixes to get it started. May be inexpensive, but you get what you pay for on this one. The 2005 version was great, but the 2006 version is a monster.
