Virgin Media Security on Windows 8 RTM

When will VM Security be upgraded to work with Windows 8 RTM?

 

Apparently Titanium 2011 from Trend Micro is incompatible with Windows 8, it needs to be upgraded to Titanium 2013.

 

Please advise as soon as possible so I can look for other alternatives if it is going to take too long.

VM will probably have to contact Radialpoint and ask them. Radialpoint provide the VMS software which is based on a Trend Micro engine. Perhaps VM will contact Trend Micro and ask them directly.

 

Get some security software which has been approved for WIndows 8 while you wait to see if VMS will eventually be compatible. As VMS still seems to have problems with some XP, Vista and Windows 7 systems I suspect it will be some time.

I used to answer questions, but now I question instead.

Cheers for the reply.

 

I will use Microsoft Defender in the mean time. Seems to do the job.

 

VMS was working perfectly fine on Windows 7 before I upgraded.

It's something my colleaues that look after VMS are talking to our partners about - but it won't work on Windows 8 at time of release of Win8.
