Hasn't let me down yet.......

  • Sep 17, 2009
  • by
Trend Micro Antivirus and Antispyware has made gains since last year, introducing a number of features in its 2008 model that are useful in both the home and small office. Aside from the intuitive interface, Trend Micro provides a number of configuration options that allow the user to control the application, something we faulted Norton Antivirus 2008 for not providing.

Trend Micro AntiVirus + AntiSpyware 2009 get off to a good start this year with the same clean and easy to use interface. The antivirus software is easy to install and intuitive. However, the antispyware portion of this application leaves much to be desired. Plus, the software tends to be resource-heavy and even sluggish at times. On top of that, Trend Micro AntiVirus + AntiSpyware 2009 don't do so well in independent testing. Results on overall effectiveness range from average to poor depending on the test.

Despite the nice look and feel, Trend Micro AntiVirus + AntiSpyware 2009 doesn't give us much confidence this year.

With that being said, Trend Anit-Virus and Anti-Spyware program has been consistent in alerting me of possible threats such as worms and trojan horses, and it will notify me of any unauthorized …
