TREND MICRO AntiVirus plus AntiSpyware 2009 - Mini box

 

Works Great, If you people would look at the specs it says nothing about service pak 3 .You are just misinformed READ the Specs. You have only yourselvs to blame. Have used TrendMicro for years and never, ever had a problem. Would recomend this to...

A sacry experience

 

Bought the software from NewEgg. Install the Trend Micro on an Acer laptop packaged with Vista Home Basic. Reboot, the system will either hang before reaching login or hang after login. System restore in Save Mode does not address the problem. I have...

It has a nice installation interface. Sharing my solution below if you encounter the same problem. **Post the same message on 2008 software. Actual I purchased 2009

Too many to list

Its OK

 

It does its job

My biggest complaint is that it is too invasive. All I want is a program to catch viruses for me. I don't need my computer locked down with me on the outside not being able to use it. This has more to do with the industry trying to overprotect the...

Good protection, heavy resource use

 

Trend needs to optimize their code. There's just no reason that top-shelf systems have to be slowed down so significantly to run their products.

Trend does a good job of catching some of the rarer infections. The installer is particularly good at removing old AV installs before proceeding itself. Newegg usually has a good price on the software

In our IT organization we call it "ziggy piggy", because of what a resource hog it is. There are several non-essential bits that can be turned off to alleviate this, but it still runs far more slowly than most competing products

Consumer review by:

Slow and painful.

 

Used to be great, but until they clean up their act, I can't recommend highly enough AGAINST it.

It used to be good

This has become probably the worst antivirus software that you have to pay for. I do computer repair, and I have completely stopped recommending what was once a great product to everyone, and have been spending an enormous amount of time removing this...

Heavy Resource Usage Makes This A Horrible AV

 

I installed this on my dads laptop. I personally use ESET NOD 32 and I would recommend that over this any day. This software is very buggy and does take up about 200MB RAM. No thanks.

None

Very intrusive, heavy resource usage, bad protection

Consumer review by:

No one should pay for this

 

Download AVG and malwarebytes for free then never look back. Antivirus software is the biggest ripoff ever.

NONE

You have to pay for it when some of the best anti virus software is free. Is super invasive, good luck uninstalling it which you will want to do later
