FREE is always good in this day and age...especially if it is not only free but GOOD! I purchased a new notebook computer this weekend and after a very lengthy conversation with the very knowledgeable Best Buy salesman I decided to purchase the virus software Trend Micro for $39.99 with a $20 annual subscription fee. This seemed pretty reasonable so I decided to try it, especially when I found out it is faster and takes less memory that Norton and McAfee, etc. and it is a lot less expensive than these other virus programs.
I went ahead and loaded it on my notebook without a problem but when I tried to load it on my desktop computer I could not load it because I received the error message "A security threat prevented the installation of Trend Micro".
After much investigation I found out there is a FREE web version of Trend Micro called Trend Micro House Call that will run a complete scan on your computer and removed any spyware and other infections found. My scan took just over 2 1/2 hours and, boy did it ever clean up my computer. There is so much spyware that can attach to our computers just by visiting websites and this program really cleaned up my hard drive.
Now I can load the Trend Micro CD I purchased on my desktop without any error messages and my computer is running FASTER without any delays. I highly recommend if you do nothing else, please click the Trend Micro House Call link above and start your free scan. You will be amazed what this program will find. I also feel the $39.99 up front fee and $20/year fee for the annual subscription is a bargain.
