Free – One Year License for Trend Micro Internet Security 2010

image 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.

Fast facts:

      Hi John,

      “Strike when the iron is hot”, “the early bird gets the worm”, come to mind. lol

      Thank you for bringing this to my attention. It’s a real service to readers, which I’m sure, is very much appreciated. In fact, within one minute of posting this, it had already gotten over 10 reads through Google and Amazon referrals.

  4. I hate these free offers. Do I or don’t I? Is it worth the hassle of uninstalling what I’ve already got, installing something new, finding out I don’t like it and then reinstalling what I had in the first place?

    Nice comprehensive package deal for someone who doesn’t have adequate security and is probably not reading your blog, Bill. 🙂

    I’m tempted, but…

      You point out a real issue here Dave – “Is it worth the hassle of uninstalling what I’ve already got, installing something new, finding out I don’t like it and then reinstalling what I had in the first place?”

      Testing software on a daily basis has taught me this – If you’re happy with what you’ve go, don’t replace it for the sake of replacing it.

      Thanks for pointing out this important issue.


      • Hey Bill!

        I agree totally with you. I probably phrased my comment too negatively. I was trying to make exactly that argument: that this type of comprehensive security package is great for people who have little or no protection currently. If those of us know people in this situation, it’s worth taking the time to help them install this superb freebie, knowing that they’ll require less rescue efforts in the future.

        I’m reluctant to replace my own security setup or that of the people I currently support, as they’re all happily functional right now. I really do see the value of this type of package, but it needs to find its way onto the computers of clueless folk – and I only wish I knew how to make that happen. 😦

        All the best,
        Dave K

      Hey Kingpin,

      I don’t know from personal experience how Trend Micro Internet Security 2010 compares, since I haven’t tested it. The reviews I’ve read though, give this app high marks.

      Thanks for the tips on the freebies. I think I’ll bypass Vipre Anti-virus just for now though – too much hassle to get the license.

    Hey Bill,

    I don’t really like all in one security products, I prefer to use several different products from different companies. But for those who aren’t tech savvy, I guess this product from Trend would be worthwhile.


    • Bill Mullins

      Hey Mal,

      Like you, I’m not particularly a fan of all-in-one suites. I like much more control than this allows.
