    "Solid protection for affordable price"

    September 16, 2014  |   By f31551

    Version: Trend Micro AntiVirus Plus 8.0.1133

    Pros

    Lightweight, very easy to use, powerful cloud security system. Malicious websites blocking is one of the most effective in industry. Does not interfere with usual user activity, just doing it's work! And doing good. Tested by independent security labs. And of course, price - it is only 49$ for 2 years, I suggest buying 2 years, it will be only 25$ each year for great internet protection software.

    Cons

    May detect some rare digitally unsigned programs as malicious, but that is totally not a problem for casual PC user. And IT geeks know how to add files to exclusions anyway.

    Summary

    Lot's of antivirus software exist in market nowadays. New Trend Micro AntiVirus Plus 2015 will be a good choice.

    "Friends told let friends install this crap."

    October 28, 2013  |   By david.marso

    Version: Trend Micro AntiVirus Plus 7.0.1151

    Pros

    None that I can think of at the moment.
    Ah... OK: It was free (obviously we get what we pay for).

    Cons

    It refused to install on the new Win8 box that the T.M.Plat was given as complimentary from the purchase (must go back to Best Buy and demand something else). I installed in on my 2008 Mac running a boot-camped Vista and everything slooooowwwwed down to the point that the beast was rendered useless. Firefox became inoperable. Everything froze. TMP crashed constantly. At that point I was concerned that I had a virus. After removing TMP, everything went back to normal.
    Ah, and what in the hell is the business of disabling Windows Defender and not allowing it to be re-enabled? Some sort of insecurity issues going on here?

    Summary

    Who are they paying to write favorable reviews on CNET? This is the worst piece of crap I have ever attempted to use on any PC at any time in my life. I have been using computers professionally for over 30 years and remember DOS and 5 1/2" disks.

    "Excellent Product"

    May 22, 2013  |   By sudsiekg

    Version: Trend Micro AntiVirus Plus 6.0.1215

    Pros

    Have never had any issues with virus, malware, or spyware with this product and have had the ability to work without the horrible delays you get with McAfee or hackers getting through Norton. It's also enabled me to work without having to keep having to "okay" a site or game.

    Cons

    When I purchased the product it said for 1-3 computers but could only load to one. Had to purchase another for my second computer. When I tried looking for a number or a way to contact them, there was none!

    Summary

    I've been using this product over 10 years and as long as it was installed there were no issues of any kind. I am fully confident that when I get on my computer it's safe and secure.

    "Best i have ever used"

    May 20, 2013  |   By zelldeb

    Version: Trend Micro AntiVirus Plus 6.0.1215

    Pros

    Finds more than any other antivirus software I have used

    Cons

    Wont let you use any other spyware program at all while using it

    Summary

    Before I used Trend Micro I had been using McAfee or AVG for the past few years, while also running SpyBot and Malwarebytes. When I installed Trend Micro the first time it found over 100 things that the other programs had not found previously. SInce then I have not had any issues with virus or spyware. The only other program that has ever been as useful for me was Norton before it became compromised. Thanks for a great piece of software.

    "Very good software"

    May 1, 2013  |   By KristovSluga

    Version: Trend Micro AntiVirus Plus 6.0.1215

    Pros

    Lightweight,easy and simple user interface,excellent(if not perfect) malicious web site blocker,good detection rate,continually improving,nice detail to personalize user interface with picture of your choice,

    Cons

    No advanced options available(this can be in pros for dummies),few false detection more than other suites,but it is simple and easy to "unblock" those.

    Summary

    I have searched long time for this kind of product.Other antiviruses was either to heavy on system,or not detecting good,or something else.I have tested it few times vs. malware and i say it is very good.I have win license for one year for this software, i believe it is a keeper. I hope to see future versions little more techie oriented(as an option,so you can choose from two modes - simple and advanced configuration). I recommend this highly. I think that has allot of potential and it is a very good deal.

    "Wouldn't install on my alarm clock"

    December 29, 2012  |   By flicker1960

    Version: Trend Micro AntiVirus Plus 6.0.1215

    Pros

    None really. AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE BUT BEWARE!

    Cons

    I had Trend Micro P-cillin and Trend Micro stop supporting it and never notified me so I quit getting updates and my computer got infected. I was told to download Trend Micro Titanium and it still never detected the virus. I contacted Trend Micro and after being a customer for over four years they said they couldn't help me. SO,
    "Trend Micro could offer me a lifetime protection of internet security and I wouldn't install it on my alarm clock. To me Trend Micro is not a trustworthy product and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. In fact why spend the money for Trend Micro internet security when it doesn't protect your computer just go ahead an get the virus and spend the money to get it fixed and save what you would be throwing away on Trend Micro. Go with Symantec. I had Trend Micro and still got a virus and Trend micro did nothing for me but give me the run around."

    "Almost a Perfect Product!"

    September 23, 2012  |   By Open_GL

    Version: Trend Micro AntiVirus Plus 6.0.1215

    Pros

    It's the number one blocker, Works with everything you own and your covered. Easy to use. Also great little tweaks they have added. reports whats going on. Also tons of settings that you can control your machine musch better then the prevoius version.

    Cons

    Its default settings are not setup the best way for your system. This causes people to hate the software; when its not configured to run the best way possible. big mistake, also its a little picky on programs aready installed that are ok. If trend doesn't like the way another acts in updating or runing.. it will block it, sometimes the unblock must be done two or three times. Trends database of good program lists needs to be updated like the 2012 version is and correct. Vista install is extremely long. The release boot control code needs to be faster. its a pain. Also this version doesn;t work good at all on old xp machines with 1GB or less, then its way too slow.

    Summary

    Trends needs a light version stripped down for people with older machines. Defaults settings must be changed. The last three years trend contiunes to provide value for the dollar. this year they offer even more. Finally I would like the program list of approved software really updated, I was a bit suprised at what it was questioning and disapointed, I can see the end result of this software, It seems Trend was a bit rushed to release it on a deadline, and a couple weeks of more programing would have made it perfect! also get rid of the un-install of other programs like malwarebytes, as you know trend some things you simply can do!!
