    Okay, this might be a lame question I bought Trend Micro Security program for the laptop. When I inserted the disc I assumed it would install from the disk and then maybe just download from the internet any updates. It didn't do this and instead seems to be downloading the whole program from the Internet - which is a pain as it uses up my wireless useage. Is this normal, and if so why do they even bother to provide the disk if that isn't how it installs? Also the instructions they provide do not match in anyway what actually appears on the screen - obviously that is just a rant and not a question as such.
