Trend Micro PC Cillin 2006 vs. Norton Anti-Virus 2006??
Posted on 2006-03-25
I had been running the trial version of PC Cillin for about 60 days or however long the trial is. When the time came to buy it, I did because I always have nightmares with people installling NAV (any version) on their computer and me trying to fix it. I had a guy who I felt was really knowledgeable recomend Trend Micro PC Cillin to me, I was convinced NAV was an inferior product due to all of the problems Norton can cause. I was running Trend as my main virus auto-protection/auto-scan, firewall, etc
...and I had AVG free set to automatically update, but not auto protect or scan. I would manually scan with AVG every other week or so. I would run Adaware and Spybot regularly as well with little to no significant issues arising.
Neither AVG nor Trend would find viri. I did knowingly get a trojan ONCE from using P2P program (i know...tsk tsk). But Trend 's autoprotect spotted the problem and seemingly quarantined the files right away. This was some time ago though, an no threats have been found since.
Well, for shits and giggles I decided to run the online Norton Security and Anti-Virus checks. The Security check was clean, but the Virus check found 2 files associated with a trojan. LSSAS.EXE and MS32.DLL .
Now I'm questioning Trend. Any thoughts?
