    I've seen TR linked to BSODs on several occasions. I've not used it for a year or more, I wasn't impressed with it prior to that.

    Another virus you can only get by running software you shouldn't.

    I have gone by the reviews by computer magazines and users, which have mostly been very negative about the amount of resources it takes and the annoyances it causes. Think Norton AV from about 3-5 years ago!
