They have a Vista version Beta with a 4 month free trial.
Loaded with firewall/anti spam/anti phishing/anti most everything
And the good news………..It works on Vista!!
ZoneAlarm did not work
Bit Defender did not work
AVG did not work

I totally agree. I installed the Vista version of PC-cillin and it works
like a charm. No error messages or problems since I installed in about a

Sure it works but it’s on a 4 mth trial while the vista beta (including rc1
which we get) is a year. What do you do when it runs out? The trend
firewall is nothing special, it doesnt block outbound unless you set rules
(gee, can do that with vista’s), spyware/phish (hmm vista has that too), AV
(gosh Avast works just as well and it’s free and never expires). So, all in
all, trend is no bargain, doesn’t offer any thing really except it does take
up even more ram and resources (yes I tried the trial and got rid of it
after a few days).

The way I look at it, in 4 months, RC1 will most likely be out. I will
install it again at that time. Then in another 4 months, if Microsoft keeps
with the Time frame, the RTM will be released. I was downloaded the
software just for the antivirus features. The other features are a plus.
When the RTM is released, I may use Avast, PC-cillin or some other software
but for the time being for the betas, I will use this since I have not had
even one issue with this software.
