Regular reader John M. W, (thank you John), has brought to my attention that Trend Micro is offering a one year license for their Trend Micro Internet Security Suite. I haven’t personally tested this application, but CNET rates it 4.5 Stars out of a possible 5. My experience has been that CNET reviews can generally be relied on.
Since this offer is available only through the developer’s site, I have no way of knowing how long this offer will last. If you’re interested in this application, now is the time to download.
From the developer’s site.
