FAQ:

Q: Why do you use Trend Micro all the time?
A: I believe that the protection for me is enough. I rarely go to any bad sites and ones that are bad I end up doing it on a VM.

Q: What phone do you have?
A: Currnetly it's the iPhone 11 Pro

Q: What do you do on your computer?
A: I work from home, so most of the time it's work. I do tend to play games and listen to music in my down time.

@McLovin:

Please specify which browser You are using.

In Backup and Restore, You may add a full Image System BackUp solution: Macrium Reflect Free or AOEMI Backupper, both are free and reliable, You already added cloud services at Photos and Files backup...

Please kindly reflect Your changes editing Your config, and announcing them here, thanks for sharing :)

Fixed and updated.

Trendmicro user here as well on my other machine.

I've been using it for years. Have had absolutely no issues with the software.

Hey @McLovin, I think that your the only one on this forum that never switched AV's since joining MT. :p

Why fix something that's not broken? haha
Never had any issues with the software, so why need to change.
I have tested many AV's back in the day, but have always come back to Trend. :)

Very few members here from 2010/2011.

Not many OG's users around anymore but the staff team. All these new faces I haven't seen before haha

I see you still use Trend. Still good for your needs or you looked at alternatives?

It good for my needs yeah. I have in the past years done alot of testing for other AV's but have always come back to Trend. Simple yet effective. Plus why fix something that's not broken? :)

Good to see you back McLovin. It's been a very long time. It's good to see that you're still happily using Trend Micro.

Thank you! Been a hot minute.
