I can't fix most trials so how about a non-trial?
http://www.grisoft.com has a free version (no-trial) and you can pay up if you like it.
I am trying the trial version of PC-cillin, and I've already had several problems. Copy of an email sent to TrendMicro Tech Support (which was returned as failed/undeliverable):
1. I seem to be getting "false positives" of the following:
I CANNOT find these files anywhere on my PC, using Add/Remove, TaskInfo,
Task Manager, Explorer Search. I do have Ad-Aware and Spybot Search &
Destroy installed, which is the only possibility I can think of as being in
2. I'm currently trying out PC-cillin, on Windows ME. Shortly after
installing and restarting my PC, I was on the internet, when I checked
PC-cillin for the logs, and to my horror, discovered the security was
disabled, and that the control to enable it was grayed out, and thus could
not be ENabled! I have not been able to find anything that relates in the
KB. I finally got it back on by closing PC-cillin and restarting the
program. But I'd REALLY like to know why it was off and what I can do to
prevent that ever happening again!
3. I tried adding a URL to the "exception" list, but the "OK" button
remained grayed-out. I could import from the favorites list, but apparently
not add a completely new URL. (Never mind-just tried it again, and it's
working now-AFTER importing though!)
4. The security check is less than clear about what to do-the "windows
update" button just takes me to "Windows Update" screen, and does not list
the updates the program is apparently recommending, and a search of their KB
is also not turning up the patches(using the list from the security check)
and I've updated all the critical SP's from there anyway. So how do I get
5. Just for curiosity: I did a virus scan, and it scanned 95,000 files. I
was previously using ZoneAlarm and it scanned 250,000 files-why the
difference? And yes, it's set for "all file types" up to 3 layers, and
everything else is checked too. It also took about the same amount of time
(almost 2 hours).
Additional note: the "view logs" shows NO logs for the virus scans. OTOH, it didn't find any viruses either.
Anybody have any ideas, since it looks like I won't be getting any help from the tech staff!
FWIW: I also just recently bought ZoneAlarm Security Suite, after trying the trial version of ZA Pro for 90 days. ZA Pro worked beautifully....ZA Suite has been a nightmare, so after the 7th time (in less than a week) I had to uninstall/reinstall I've asked for a refund from ZA. Previously, I was using Norton System Works, but they've gotten so greedy, I want to try something different (better!) Hence, the trial with PC-cillin. The way it turned itself off, though, makes me VERY nervous!
Any help appreciated!
