Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2008

It's another new year on the internet and another new year of threats. Viruses, phishing, Trojan horses, spyware and the like are just a few of the dangers that PC internet users face and fortunately for us mere mortals, we need a program to prevent these dangers from entering onto our computers.

Features
 

  • Protect your PC from viruses, hackers, phishing scams and more
  • Removes and blocks spyware and rootkits
  • Block malicious changes to your applications
  • Block email and image spam
  • Automatically updates your PCs with the latest protection

Once such program is Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2008 that protects your PC from a variety of nefarious threats and for just $99.95 AUD (RRP), this program will give you 12 months of updates and also allow you to install this on three different computers.

So what exactly does this program do? It's basically a 24/7 security guard for your PC that also gets "trained" or updated numerous times a year to prevent your computer from being comprised.

As with all Trend Micro products, installing the current incarnation of Internet Security 2008 was a breeze and it simply auto installed onto your Windows Vista machine with no hassles whatsoever. The installation process also scans your hard drive and even network for any viruses that may have entered your system.

Benefits
 

  • Protection for your home network, personal identity and online activities is easy with the complete suite of security tools available in the program.
  • Ensure your privacy is maintained and your online activities (e-mail, purchasing, banking and sharing photos) remain confidential.
  • Trend Micro Internet Security 2008 is easy to install, configure and manage. Plus automatic updates will alert you of potential threats and remove them safely.
  • More than just a basic security program, Trend Micro Internet Security 2008 features home network protection, URL filtering and online fraud protection to provide you with the ultimate PC protection.

Yes this program will prevent viruses, Trojan horses and other program based nasties from effecting your computer but it goes one step beyond standard anti-virus programs. Internet Security 2008 also protects your information from being stolen and for parents, prevents children or adults from accessing inappropriate websites. Definitely great for surfing the web and preventing those "fake" websites from stealing your information.

Fed up with SPAM? Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2008 also features a SPAM filter which prevents "junk" e-mail from clogging up your inbox which is a great item to have in this day and age where unscrupulous companies try to sell everything from Viagra to South African money scams.

Testing

We sent ourselves a number of "viruses" through e-mail which was quickly stopped by Internet Security 2008 as were files that we tried to run which were also effected. The parental control system works great too and stopped us from visiting a variety of websites thanks to a Google search.

In conclusion, Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2008 is the perfect program for home users who are looking for affordable protection with maximum protection. Easy to install, a simple yet understandable interface and best of all, quietly works in the background protecting your PC. Great stuff!
