Well I had a problem with it so just in case anyone else does I could'nt figure out why downloads from MS would just stop as soon as you started to download and this was the reason.

There are new features for Trend Micro Home Network Security and if you don't disable them you will have problems when trying to download via a website not sure if the same problem occurs if you go and register with Trend Micro though.

Anyone else seen this problem or is it just me?

Anyone tried out this Trend Micro stuff yet. Does it work only with XP or with other OS's as well. From the Trend website it seems to be aimed at XP users.

I haven't tried it out yet coz I work on the if it ain't broke don't fix it principle and my little netgear box has been doing ok so far (famous last words). But I might be tempted if the new firmware included AV scanning & spyware detection on the router which seems to be what Trends promo suggests it does.

Yes I am not using it on my system but I have updated my neighbours router with it and gone through the registration procedure for them just waiting for the activation email to arrive from Trend

You can find the System Requirements Here

I will post more info once I have it all working for them Wink

Thanks for the heads up man. Got that link bookmarked and was going to check it last night, but just thought that they'd be no chance of an update anytime soon so I skipped it Smiley
