WHAT IS THE TRIAL PERIOD FOR TRUSTPORT PRODUCTS? DO I HAVE TO REINSTALL, IF I WANT TO LICENSE THE SOFTWARE?

WHY IS IT NOT POSSIBLE TO HAVE TRUSTPORT ANTIVIRUS RUNNING AT THE SAME TIME WITH ANOTHER ANTIVIRUS PROGRAM?
This is not possible because of the technical nature of on-access antivirus protection. No two antivirus programs can run in tandem, so this is not a problem specific just to TrustPort Antivirus.
WHY IS IT NECESSARY TO RESTART THE COMPUTER AFTER INSTALLATION?
To ensure that the computer is fully protected by the antivirus, it is advised to restart the computer. This allows the on-access antivirus protection to be loaded into memory during system startup.
