    "A giant step backwards"

    October 14, 2006  |   By ksalerno

    Pros

    Clean interface, program learns by your choices, many options

    Cons

    The 2006 suite worked relatively well, although I found a "dropper" infection that it missed. But when I upgraded to 2007, my computer became unstable and extremely slow. Nothing seemed to work properly and the computer then kept looping restarts. When I finally deleted it I installed Avast! and although the interface is crude and tacky it seems to work perfectly. I still have 6 months on my PC-cillin year but I simply can't use it. Hope you have better luck if you choose it.

    But we disagree when it comes to the stability issue. If your comp. has adequite recources to push the new Trend 2007 it is infact very stable. If you are lite on ram this is not the product fou you.

    Google Avast. Go to their website. There you will find about 20 different skins. All you do is click the ones you like and they will install. re-open the app., ues the pull down and select the one you want to use! EASY!!!!

    Avast website offers about 20 skins. Some of which are really nice. All you have to do is download the ones you like and when you open it up the next time and use the pull down menu and they will be there to choose from under skin. No extracting zip files to to C:/ program file for "Alwill" or anything. Simple when you know how.
