Merijn has sold HijackThis to TrendMicro. The transaction happened 3-4 months ago, but you can now find a beta of the Trend version available here.

Three major changes that I notice, and don’t care for:

1) HijackThis ? — it’s now trademarked, potentially restricting its use. How will it affect sites offering free help via HijackThis?

2 ) AnalyzeThis? Do I need to say more about automated scanners?

3) *Trend Micro does not officially support HiJackThis. Who will provide support?
