Having these products installed together with Trend Micro products could result to loss of Internet connection or slow computer performance.
Excuse me if I'm missing something here, TeMerc, but wouldn't it be simpler just to not run Trend Micro apps altogether ? B)

Hello,This is fairly normal behavior, as most of these programs behave in similar fashions, having them installed on a system and trying to hook into the same interrupts, API calls, et cetera could results in conflicts and other conditions which affect the reliablity, stability and performance of the system.With some judicious troubleshooting and testing, one can rule out some of the conflicts, but as soon as one of the vendors makes a change as minor as a signature update, conflicts could ensue.Regards,Aryeh Goretsky

Couldn't agree more.This takes 'weeding out the competition' to new levels.

Hello,There is a section in that list of their own software which needs to be removed before installing the current version.I think it is pretty normal for a security products vendor to warn you to uninstall other security products before installing their software onto a computer.Regards,Aryeh Goretsky
