Trend Micro Hijack This™
I’m really surprised that I haven’t been reading more comments about this new relationship. All I can figure is all the MVP’s are out having fun in Seattle and they haven’t been online to chat about this one.

I’m haven’t decided yet what this all means but I’ll be writing more soon. What do you think? Feel free to leave a comment.
Update From the author…
This is not fake, I sold HijackThis to TrendMicro. Their product incorporates all changes, updates and fixes that I was planning on adding in the v1.99.2 release. I made sure of that and I hope no one will be disappointed with it.While TrendMicro does not officially support HijackThis yet, I expect they will once it goes final.
I sold HijackThis because I had been sitting on an unfinished update for over a year and I still could not make enough time to finish it. My uni classes are taking up a lot of time and I want to set my goals a bit wider than just the antispyware business (though I still love it). Sitting on an unfinished product until it becomes obsolete is not useful, so I decided to transfer the responsibility to TrendMicro (who have also taken care of my CWShredder) so they can give it proper attention and support. Where the will take HijackThis, I do not know - but I am sure they will respect its goals and what it stands for.
