Good protection, problematic installation

A no-nonsense program that doesn't slow your system as noticeably as the Norton and McAfee products, touting a 50% faster bootup time and 40% less memory usage.

That said, installation was problematic and required the uninstallation of Norton Antivirus, Spybot and other anti-adware programs. However, this product offers an inexpensive solution to home network protection with its virus and spyware protection. You can surf the Web safely knowing malicious downloads and email spam will be blocked.

The parental control wasn't needed, but as other have stated, setting access was difficult.

I feel Trend Micro Internet Security is a good, usable program, however, I think Trend Micro's Pro version a better choice for added identity theft protection and remote file lock in the event of computer theft.

This is a pretty good program. I thought suite did well with malware cleanup, removing 70 percent of all files and Registry changes introduced by malicious infections. Only Symantec Norton Internet Security 2008 did a better job at disinfection, at 80 percent. The Trend Micro package allowed us to copy 732MB of files the fastest of the eight suites while its real-time detection was enabled--an indicator of the drag you can expect a security suite to have on your PC.    In general, …
