Can't activate Trend Micro Internet Security 2008

by mgkwon / September 10, 2008 3:51 PM PDT

I recently purchased and installed Trend Micro Internet Security 2008 on a secondary desktop PC and updated everything.

While it will scan, I cannot "activate the subscription". It keeps telling me that I must reconnect to the internet in order to activate but I AM connected to the internet and CAN open web pages.

Trend Micro support page doesn't help.

"secondary" sounds interesting.

Is this the second install you are trying to activate? Many softwares only allow install, activation on one machine.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
