It's not a well established anti-virus, and that's probably why their giving away a year long trial.

Anti-virus software manufacturors make the majority of their money from businesses, as full anti-virus solutions for them can cost over £10,000 for a small 20-work station 2-server company. Therefore, they usually release a free home version with the same anti-virus capability, but without the extras and internetwork-ability.

Because of that, it's usually best to stick with the likes of avast! or AVG - they offer free programs which are as capable of the basics as their premium counterparts, and they are well-established and have experienced antidote programmers.

Time warner gives subscribers to roadrunner high speed that suite for free, too. I use to use it, but found mcafee better, though.

Grisoft has a free version of AVG, also.

Never hurt to have some AV redundancy :)
