    I would not use this, based on the impression I have that TrendMicro flags a ridiculous amount of files as viruses. I use virustotal a lot, and there TrendMicro is always flagging every file I upload as a virus. I even made a dummy textfile and renamed it keygen.exe and TrendMicro was ready to save me from that horrible virus..TrendMicro and a few Chinese antivirus companies as well seem to be very aggressive, I suppose it’s their business idea: flag everything so people think we are more efficient than others! Some 5-6 years ago TrendMicro were really good, but now I think time has passed them by, a dying company.

  2. Yes, one has to be very careful, while using such tools, as they can give out false-positives.

    That’s true. Antivirus itself is a virus.So,the PC users have to make a selection of antivirus with caution that suits the requirements.In my case,Malwarebytes Anti-malware has proven worthy.

    Be very careful using this. It completely deleted Windows from the bootmenu on my W8.1 bootloader. I had to run the bootrec tool to repair it. It very nearly bricked a $1200 laptop.
