I guess, all AVs developers are running new PCs like Intel P4 3Gz on Windows XP, and expecting everyone to upgrade your pc sooner or later.
In general, pc-cillin is easy-to-use in interface, with free phone support. McAfee has only internet support while norton charges for phone support.
I was using McAfee since 2000, and never satisfied with their product. I was forced to switch to Pc-cillin when I purchased McAfee 2005 upgrade because it sucked all my RAMs. Also, because of my out-of-dated McAfee firewall, hacker penetrated my McAfee 2005 upgrade and stole my password, blocked me from receiving any further update from McAfee server. McAfee has the worst update mechanism, and I must set internet explorer to accept ActiveX and cookies(which let the hacker to control my machine easily),then login first to their McAfee server in order to receive upgrade. So, the hacker got my McAfee password, free update right for a year, and I was left unprotected at all. No wonder, I heard lots of people can get free McAfee AV updates year after year even though they need to login first to McAfee server.
Pc-cillin do updates like Norton simple and direct!!!
The only thing I would like pc-cillin to add on is something like McAfee Visual Trace so that I can easily identify the intruders instead of a IP address.
Antispy is also weak, neither do Norton, McAfee and other AVs.
It is so far an excellent AV product in the market.
It effectively had it all from the virus protection,spam/spyware protection,a firewall,and more.
I have used older versions of PC Cillin from the very early #3 Version right up through to the 2000 version.It was up until that time the best anti virus software I had ever used.I loved its' ease of use,it didn't used much computer resource and ran in the background doing its' job admirably catching more than a few unwanted visitors over time.
As soon as I installed this program(full,with all options) it immediately had the effect of slowing EVERYTHING in my system down to a crawl as well as at times freezing it(especially when updating the pattern file).It also wouldn't allow various functions to run especially the ScanDisk.The program also seemed to be constantly writing to the drive for some reason or rather,you could clearly hear the indicative "grinding"...so much for this version using little resource and running quietly in the background.I knew immediately this wasn't the "good old days".
I uninstalled it and re-installed the so-called "light" version(just the basic real-time scan anti virus feature-which in itself is kind of a waste considering everything that this program has built into it) to see if that would change anything.Not a chance.
I run Windows 98 and have a 1.2GB P3 chip with about 384 of RAM.
My system flies and I had never experienced such a "slowing" on my system until this moment.The blurb for the product on Amazon AND on the package states it's supposed to run on such a system as mine.
From the get-go I was in immediate contact with Trend Micro "support" both on the phone AND through days of back and forth e-mails.Read more ›

Trend Micro Tech Support said this is a known issue. They had me download a new installation package, uninstall, reinstall, etc. etc. Same problem. Waste of time.
Is it just me or have software vendors completely lost their pride?
