Let's face it, there are pros and cons to all the big name PC security vendors and products. This one is OK.
However, it is not possible to install this software without agreeing to receive marketing emails (and phone calls, etc.) from trend micro. Since this is unwanted (and effectively unsolicited) it is SPAM and therefore illegal under UK law.
"So what?" you might ask. I say that if companies are not prepared to take certain visible aspects of the law seriously, how can I trust them with other invisible aspects of the law? Remember - this is the vendor of a SECURITY product that breaches UK laws (and being marketed for the UK and sold in the UK it must adhere to UK laws). I will try some other provider next year when this expires.
I strongly recommend registering (and activating - not an optional step) with a hotmail or other similar account so that their spam does not clutter your "proper" inbox.
Update: This product now tells me that "someone who cares about" me does not want me visiting the Amazon.co.uk web site.
* First off, I am the only one using this PC so how does that work?? (My conclusion - the software is telling lies.)
* Secondly, even when I "ask for permission" (from myself) it still mucks up the web page (blocking CSS or JS files I guess).
So... the only way I can visit *this* web site - one of the most trusted on the web - is to TURN OFF the security software on my PC (there does not seem to be an option to turn off the web paranoia setting, but I will search further).
As a general comment, I have had no (detected) viruses or other real nasties. This has only detected browser cookies and legitimate web sites. If it carries on like this I will simply remove Titanium and accept the risk.
