Mac users: get your copy of Smart Surfing for Mac now!


As of December 28th, McGill's license of Virus Barrier X (5 & 6) will expire. Replacing it is a new product, Trend Micro's Smart Surfing for Mac. Its features include antivirus, antispyware and web threat protection; additionally, it has built in parental controls, a spam blocker and a two-way firewall.

As this is a new product offered by Trend Micro, a special build was created for McGill that is valid for one year from the time it is activated.

While current Virus Barrier X users will be protected against internet threats until December 28th, we recommend uninstalling it and installing Smart Surfing for Mac at your earliest convenience.
