Editors' Review

+

With Trend Micro Internet Security 2008, you need only to provide your e-mail address to activate the full function 30-day free trial.

Once installed, the protection provided by Trend Micro is good. The two-way firewall blocks Internet threats, while scanners remove viruses, spyware, and rootkits. The interface is clean and intuitive, with configuration settings accessible for more advanced users. The suite includes additional tools to identify legitimate Wi-Fi hot spots (Wi-Fi Advisor), parental controls, Internet Web protection, home network protection, and even a system tune-up diagnostic (System Tuner).

Trend Micro provides free telephone, e-mail, and chat technical support, which is important since the online technical support information for Trend Micro Internet Security 2008 is not that good. Not only does Trend Micro lack a Getting Started PDF, but there is no manual and far too few knowledge base articles. Removal is clean: we found no traces of Trend Micro Internet Security on our system after reboot.

"Horrible customer service.Rep contacted me on Facebook!"

July 21, 2009  |  By PIVIB

 |  Version: Trend Micro Internet Security 2008 16.10.1063

Pros

There are absolutely NO pros to this program!

Cons

They call themselves an Anti-virus/Anti-spyware yet their customer service reps take your info and contact you on personal levels! They don't know how to resolve any of the problems.

Summary

I had the same issues SEVERAL times within 2 weeks time. No one seemed to know how to fix the problem. I figured I would call them after I tried to get the help online from their "live" techs and spoke with a man who asked me the spelling of my name...first and last as well as the spelling of my email several times. He proceeded to send me a friend request on facebook while he was on the phone with me. How many times as he done this? Has he contacted underage kids who are more computer savvy than their parents who are calling the company to resolve an issue? There is NO customer service in America either!! I spoke with their attorney by the name of Jorge Young who has done NOTHING but tell me they are "working on the issue". This company should NOT be trusted with your personal information because they clearly have no problem using it for personal gain. Disgusting.

"I am totally satisfied. Excellent program."

April 02, 2009  |  By smokycity

 |  Version: Trend Micro Internet Security 2008 16.10.1063

Pros

It does a god job of stopping viruses, spyware, pop ups. Have had the program for 2 years, 3 months.

Cons

I don't like that you are limited on acceptable web sites(allowed) What I do is disable the program to access the site and delete one acceptable to add a new one. I DO NOT like that feature.

Summary

I think it is an excellet program and does an excellent job. One just has to try it to see if they would like it but it does take some time getting accustomed to how it works. It really takes care of you as far as I have needed it. I have had no viruses, and it stppped one early in the program when puter was new. I would recommend the program.

"Great Improvement for Trend Micro"

September 24, 2008  |  By NemoSyn

 |  Version: Trend Micro Internet Security 2008 16.10.1063

Pros

I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 32bit edition and seems like there is no AV software installed because this TMIS 2k9 doesn't slow down my computer even thou I'm running 4 game applications and still my CPU still is below 50% of the CPU usage.

Cons

The installer file is quite large for a dial-up user. But since im a DSL/Broadband user its not a problem for me.

Summary

This is the best AV software from Trend Micro. The boot up time of me computer is about 10-15 secs. Even thou I have may programs on my startup. Unlike using other AV software it boots up to 1-2mins. And the Network Map is great! I can see all the computers connected on my network. I can also use the installer file on my other computer to install it to the 3rd computer I don?t need to download the installer file anymore. And the Malware protection is great. There are so many malware out on the web and TM blocks the malware to enter my computer. All I can say is Trend Micro Rocks!!

"Way too slow"

September 04, 2008  |  By jeffrag

 |  Version: Trend Micro Internet Security 2008 16.10.1063

Pros

Finds most viruses

Cons

Doesn't find all spyware and malware. Tech support is slow to respond.

Summary

I have the 2007 version and it's killing my system speed. It didn't catch a hidden malware program in a recent download and I had to go to Trend's tech support to try and rid of it. Ended up using a free ware download instead since Trend's tech support is slow to respond. Finding something else now.

"its the best"

August 25, 2008  |  By master_mind413

 |  Version: Trend Micro Internet Security 2008 16.10.1063

Pros

I have been using trend micro since 03 that is six years and counting I have went through all of the security suits and this one is the best I have never had a virus problem never a problem with spyware it is great I highly recommend it to every one

Cons

I have used the parental controls and I think it needs to offer a little more in the programing to change what content you want to add or remove change aggression of it from age to age cause as they get older I mean, you need to be able to be a little more lenient and it would be nice to have a timer option to allow them to only be online for 2-3 hours a day at age 12 for example just more options

"Nothing I would write home to mom about!"

August 15, 2008

 |  Version: Trend Micro Internet Security 2008 16.10.1063

Cons

I have used trend for several years (I think since 2000) and during that time it has grown to take triple the resources and this past year with the 2007 version I ended up with at least 4 different viruses and friends that I had recommended it too have reported getting viruses as well. I installed the 2008 version on 3 CPUs during installation on one it did not install properly and would not work until I called and had tech support walk me through the fix. This should not have happened. Ever since I have installed this software I get error messages from the trend software on all 3 CPUs saying the software has been disrupted and the computer needs to be rebooted. It also uses such much CPU resources the computers almost freeze up especially if it is scanning the computer. This is not the software that used to provide excellent smooth running protection. It also seems like the response time on updates against new outbreaks is very delayed than before. Each year I get more and more disappointed with their security suites. I can't wait to find a new one that can take it's place because I still will not use Mc Affee or Norton because those are jokes when it comes to protection. Last year I had to use Webroot Spy Sweeper with Anti virus to get the viruses off my computers, kind of bad when you have to use another company's software to fix virus problems. I will probably be installing the webroot soon because of all of the errors. OH! And something else it take Trend a really long time to get booted up which makes me really nervous when it comes to boot up protection.

"Tech support totally useless"

August 01, 2008  |  By jomahsolutions

 |  Version: Trend Micro Internet Security 2008 16.10.1063

Cons

Had no problem with the program untill I loades PRO. since then it has let virus's through andfor over 4 weeks tech support has been totally useless, in fact, my system is worse after implementing all their suggestions. Major problem is that every Email is answered by a different Tech person and they don't bother to look at the problem history.
