Anyone know how to register the full program PC Tools Internet Security 2009 that came with Issue 161? Even the address: click here does not work!

It works for me,

Try deleting your temp Internet files and try again

It works for me too now! Seems the program was preventing me from connecting and once I'd spotted that, all went as it should.

Alls well that ends well

I installed this in an old pc that I wanted to revive. I used it just to be safe Whilst I was on line for the first time to get all the required updates. I then unistalled it, Or thought I had but on reboot it was still there and the uninstall string was missing. It would not let me reinstall a new copy as it kept telling me it was all ready running even though it wasn't. AVG refused to install because it detected IS2009. I think this is just one of those very intrusive programs, several of which do a better job. I finally installed drive sentry3.1 off the October issue of PC advisor with no issues. I still cant actually remove PC tools IS 2009 so Iv'e just deleted the folders as it's not running anyway despite what it says.

How true

I installed on a test computer and it slowed it down to a snails pace,

Had to do a system restore to get rid of it PC Tools crap no wonder Norton are buying it

Yes, my question was answered, I too found it to be a pitb, and uninstalled it.
