    Following is just what I heard from another forum for antivirus fans in my country:

    The hypersensitive mode is based on a whitelist maintained by TrendMicro (TM). Only programs scanned and verified by TM will be added to that whitelist.

    When this mode is enabled, any file not in that whitelist will be blocked, no matter whether it is suspicious or not.

    So you can consider it as a strict security mechanism. Yes, just like the Hardened Mode of avast.:D

    For many users, this mode will be inconvenient for them. So, TM also provides the auto-switch mode.

    When auto-switch mode is turned on, in most cases TM will work in the normal mode to avoid disturbing users.

    However, for the case where TM suddenly detects many virus in a short time, TM could switch to the Highsensitive mode to suppress the outbreak of virus.

    Please note that, the highsensitive mode cannot block any program when you are offline. Yes, just like the Hardened Mode of avast.:D

    This is reasonable because TM is cloud based.

    I do not mean TM is useless in offline. Highsensitive mode is just the last level of protection. There could be some other modules that can protect you.

    @Online_Sword has provided an easy understanding of the choices.

    Further reading also helps, usually done by yourself.

    If you're buying a product, why not check the Product Help guide (or look online, at least to understand the basic idea).
    "Protection Level
    This behaviour monitoring function is enabled by default to switch from Normal to Hypersensitive only when needed, but you can change this setting.
    • Normal - Detects and stops security threats based on clearly risky behaviour.
    • Hypersensitive - Aggressively eliminates programs even if they only pose a small risk of bad behaviour.
    • Switch protection level automatically - Increases the protection level only when you need it. This is the default setting."

    I personally recommend the auto-switch mode.

    As mentioned in my last post, when you choose the auto-switch mode, in most cases TM will just work in the normal mode.

    As far as I know, with the auto-switch mode enabled, TM will be switched to the hypersensitive mode only when viruses outbreaks.
