Good and useful antivirus scanner.

  I occasionally use it as extra protection. It is a scanner rather than permanent protection. And I extremely like that do not need to install it: it’s portable. I launch the program and it is immediately ready to scan. It does not matter when it was downloaded from the site. Always on startup, it checks for updates and downloads them, if available. So it always has the latest database of threats. Although I am a cautious Internet user, but still in my opinion, periodic scanning of the operating system with this program is not excessive. It would be great if they add the ability to schedule a scan

Pros:

  • Compactness.
  • Simple to use.
  • Portable.

CONS:

  • No scheduling function

It is not completely fair software, in addition it blocks something that shouldn't be blocked

I bought a lifetime license of Trend Micro, but if you chose this offer you will not receive updates. You'll have to pay for them. Also, this AV blocks download of Microsoft Word and HP printer updates. I've nothing against protection, but not when it creates problems where they shouldn't be.

Pros:

  • It's protection is fine

CONS:

  • no updates, mis block

It's the best software that can heal everything

It's the best AV I've ever had, and its customer support is great. It's the only antivirus that was able to get rid of virus on my PC. When I got virus I didn't have Trend Micro, but with their free virus scanner my issue was completely solved. And since that I had no viruses for 12 years.

Pros:

  • Protection, scanner

CONS:

  • None

This company is awfull, and its products don't service to their purpose.

I bought 12 months 6 device security and in several months it was stopped without any notification. How did I found out? My computer was hacked, so I couldn't get access to my business website because it was only accessible from my PC. So I called customer service the following day, but their answer was "Bad luck". They refused refund. I've had legal advice, got in touch with ACCC, and we're going to go to Department of Fair Trading... USE NORTON - SAVE MONEY AND YOUR DATA.

Pros:

  • Firstly there were no troubles

CONS:

  • They can make your product stop working without any notice

It's awfully heavy software will make PC work slow

Trend micro slows down your PC. When I boot my PC it takes several minutes for Trend Micro to start, and while it's starting there is no chance to close it. After AV started working properly it takes about 50% of CPU, so the only way to get fine working PC is to close Trend Micro(at least now it is possible). So eventually I have slowly booting PC without protection. Customer service didn't even answer. At least PC scan works as it should.

Pros:

  • System scan

CONS:

  • It slows your PC down

I didn't even installed this AV and already got problems.

I just bought my laptop and seller gave me card with a code of year subscription on Trend Micro. When I tried to download AV appeared some error with advice to call to custom service, when I did they asked me to allow remote access to my PC, I agreed cause I thought it was trusted company. They said that they have to do some scanning and promised to call back in 10 minutes. When i got called back guy told me that there were found some serious issues. I understood that he was using scam scarring tactics. He told that I have malware on my PC and that my entire system is compromised, also he wanted me to buy all their products. But I knew that my laptop couldn't be compromised, cause it was working for less than an hour. So I told him to disconnect from my system. I called IT from my work, they helped me to make factory reboot to clean all malware "customer service" could install on my laptop. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS COMPANY!

Pros:

  • None

CONS:

  • This is a scam company
