Trend Micro is a respectable name in the antivirus software business and their latest offering the Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security 2012 promises to provide 360 degrees protection to home PCs and laptop. As has been the trend, Trend too offers a 3 PC license for $14.49, which is well priced just below the Norton package but just above the Kaspersky package.
Like all other antivirus software packages, Trend claims to protect the home PC or laptop from every known cyber threat and assures the customer that its software does not give annoying pop up messages. Do customers believe their claim? Apparently they do because any antivirus software in a fiercely competitive market that gathers an average rating of 4.5/5 from 59 users deserves healthy respect.
Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security 2012 Review Summary
Like any product, the Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security 2012 also suffers from some drawbacks, but not too many as the Norton and Kaspersky users have found. In fact, there was only one, one-star rating of the 59 user feedbacks analyzed. The installation disc of one user gave problems and he found that the software conflicted with the Windows firewall. Now this product is supposed to be compatible with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7, so conflicts with any Windows component should not happen. When the customer contacted the online support, they curtly informed him that Windows Fire Wall conflicts was not their problem. This disappointed customer has returned his Trend antivirus software since then. Another customer reports that installation of this antivirus software on a gaming PC results in significant loss of speed and at times, the PC crashes. Yet another user reports that the so-called parental control settings are very easy to override, his 12-year old son showed him how he could get around the Parental control feature.
The antivirus is easy to install, and easy to operate. There are not too many confusing user settings, and using the default settings is best. Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security 2012 does not give annoying pop ups like some other anti virus software packages. 360 degrees protection? A resounding yes has been reported by over 98% of the users of this software. The software has a small resource footprint and does not significantly slow down the PC. The software has extremely good reviews from geeks and Cnet with a 96.5 detection rate being its benchmark, which is extremely hard and difficult for other antivirus software to match. The quick scan is extremely fast, it takes only three minutes to complete, a feature which most users found very useful as it reduced the time during which a PC becomes slow. Users have reported that the software does not take up as much space as Norton and is a lot faster, hence most have migrated to s Trend Micro Titanium package.
Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security 2012 is a good antivirus software that has received extremely high five star ratings from users 31 out of 59 users) and 22 four star ratings. The software delivers a steady performance. It does not slow down the PC like Norton appreciably does. Its installation is easy. The crib against slow performance on a gaming PC is quite generic, for any antivirus software will always slow down a gaming PC unlike that PC has a very fast processor and loads of RAM. The pricing is reasonable; $14.49 for three PCs is an extremely good bargain. Despite the low price the software does not compromise on security features and we feel this software is the best bargain in the market and strongly recommend this product for every home user.
