Trend micro stuck updating
The first time a tried to do it, it came up with a message saying that there was a bad image in the win32or something. They told me to write in update source page in menu. As a matter of fact as time passed after the installation of Kaspersky, it started to take a toll on my ram usage but Norton remained constant with it's good performance so eat your own words and do some research on your own before you jump on the band wagon of these marketing gimmicks fanboy. I think I may try Trend Micro or some other software once my licence expires in 382 days.
I thought it might be conflicting with AVG free, so i removed that and tried to do it again, but it goes no further than %2 Should i just forget about kaspersky and get Norton or one of the free internet security programs? I do need a qood internet security software as I do internet banking all the time and do a lot of downloading too. Norton goes beyond the call of duty and tries to erase any file with a suspicious name. As far as the comment goes that Norton detects suspicious files and erase threats, isn't erasing threats the job of an antivirus?
This type of "fine print" authorization should be against the law and Trend should be ashamed of scamming people that have not even updated their software in years.
They lost a customer for life and I will trash them every chance I get unless they refund our money.
When I called to reverse the charge, they claimed it had exceeded a 30 period (whatever that means) and would not reverse the charge. A charge of this kind should always be accompanied by a notification email. Badly slows down PC, for few minutes after boot, the PC is effectively useless when TM starts.
And the user is NOT able to kill TM process at that stage.
I don't see Windows Update on the firewall exception list. The firewall only protect against incoming connections, not outgoing right? I'm running it on my system at this very instant and it looks like it's stuck, but it isn't.
I would suggest looking at the Trend Micro KB article I posted below in this thread.
As for files to exclude specifically, I would suggested the below three files:adxloader. To be honest, I never linked it to the Outlook Plugin. The screen just freezes sometimes for several seconds.
Know that you will most likely never even encounter most of these so-called threats, reality is that a computer can do just fine without any antivirus installed in the system unless you are some sleazy pervert who likes to surf a lot of adult streaming websites or risky websites to download cracks, patches, sql injections for hacking and what not.
All these high percentage malware and virus detection rate is a marketing gimmick to sell the software.
