I'm in two minds about Titanium Maximum Security 2011. While the software is pretty much better than any other Antivirus and Spyware tool I've used before, it does tend to want to control everything.
That said, you can't say that it doesn't do what it says on the box, which is provide Maximum security. To be fair, you can fiddle with settings to get it to a more sedate state, but many new PC owners will probably benefit from the over-indulgence of the software to automatically remove anything it finds suspicious.
The benefits of the software are that it comes with multiple licences, not just for PCs but also Netbooks. You can download the software over the internet and use the same Serial Number to unlock it. It also has the now-obligatory backup software with online storage, which every Antivirus seems to be doing, with an impressive 10GB to back up your most important data. This only lasts as long as the 12 month Anti-virus subscription, though, so some may see it as another way of guaranteeing the next year's payment.
What is different is that Titanium comes with a decent System Optimisation package that actually seems to work without tying the user down in complicated menus and a remote file lock and data erase option.
Installing on Windows 7 was easy, no long waiting times for the program to install here. Everything was set up without fuss and started working as soon as the computer had been rebooted. Windows 7 Starter on the Netbook took a little longer due to downloading the software first, but otherwise proved to be just as easy to install.
Titanium Maximum Security gets top marks for protecting and looking after your computer. Some advanced users may find it a little overbearing at times though, as it has a habit of wanting to control everything. For everyone else, this is a great Anti-virus option.
