I loaded Titanium Internet Security 2012 on a 32-bit Windows XP target, with a 2.8 GHz Pentium 4 with 2 GB RAM. This system cannot be considered cutting edge by most standards anymore but it is sufficient for running this security suite.
Although the requirements on the packaging list a number of acceptable browsers for Titanium to work, what it doesn't tell you is that MSIE version 7.0 or better MUST be installed for the package to even load. Keep this in mind, as it is easy to get very frustrated when loading this package on an older target. Once I loaded MSIE 8.0 on the target machine I had no more issues with installation - it installed relatively smoothly and it came up without a fight.
Trend has steadily improved their user interface and Titanium 2012 has a very simple, straightforward and aesthetically pleasing interface. The dashboard gives immediate access to the most important functions right away - scanning, parental controls and utilities/settings. I did run into one quirk with the interface, though. When a password is set and I try to access a feature that requires me to enter the password, the password dialog box has a tendency to pop under the dashboard and it is impossible to bring it forward. I am not sure why this is the case.
The last version of Trend Micro's security offerings that I tried was the 2010 version and I had issues with the firewall. Trend solved that issue - there's no firewall in this package.Read more ›
Conclusion, am returning TM 2012 security suite for refund. In this process discovered that Microsoft's free Security Essentials may be a better product, and if need be Kaspersjy 2012 has well reviewed SW firewall. I suspect that TM expects loss of viability in the near future. Goodbye Trend Micro.
Update Mar 2013: Been using Kaspersky Internet Security suite ever since and am not disappointed, ie, not one malware incident and KIS has more features that I use than TM.
The package comes with two cds, one for PCs and one for MAC. Installation is easy. Just pop the CD in and follow the instructions. I did have to update a service pack on the computer before I was able to install the program. I did think the actual installation and activation time was a tad long, about ten minutes not including download of an update to the titanium program. Other than that, the program seems to be working well without interfering with the computer's performance. Notably, this program does not have the constant alerts and notifications youget with other security suites. There are customizable parental controls, data theft protection and a system cleaner that removes cookies, browsing history, registries and the like.
So far this seems to be a satisfactory program. It is easy to set up and appears to be effective. Additionally, the price is reasonable.
Do yourself a favor and buy anything else as this product is not even remotely satisfactory, especially if you apparently can't install it on any machine that isn't new just out of the box.
This program (2012)'loads' as slow as a slug; you may even think it's hung but be patient and it should complete the process without your intervention. Once loaded I do not notice a bit of performance deterioration. The only way you even know it's working is when it gives you a summary of what threats have occurred on your system and what it did about them. This 'scheduled scan' is user defined from the main 'console'. I have had two instances where an email was automatically deleted after Trend Micro stated there was a trojan horse in an attachment. Yikes!! Turns out they were right as one of those was from my grandson who wrote three days later telling me his address book had been hacked and the email I had received from him was infected.
No Internet Security/Anti-Virus program is foolproof but I've found this one to be unobtrusive, effective, and inexpensive!!
