Free PC-Cillin 2008? I think Comodo’s free security suite is a lot better

I chanced across a download link to free copies of Trend Micro’s PC-Cillin 2008 complete with serial number. Also on tap are links to free copies (with serials) of Trend Micro PC-Cillin 2006 and Trend Micro PC-Cillin 2006.

But there’s a catch: the versions released are compatible only with Windows 2000, ME (does anyone still use that sick puppy?), XP SP 2 and Vista without SP1.

And if you are looking at a really trustworthy solution, PC-Cillin is no longer it. According to Virus Bulletin AV Test Results (September 2008), PC-Cillin’s overall detection rate is way lower than that for free tools like AVG Antivirus or Avir Home (free for personal use)!

If you have Windows XP SP3 or Vista SP1 and are looking at a powerfulsecurity suite (firewall, antivirus and Trojan scanner) look no further than Comodo Internet Security 3.5. I use the basic firewall version and now that the suite is out of Beta plan upgrading to the whole she-bang on the weekend.
