    If you want CIA realtime monitoring, then I suppose Trend is fine.

    You cannot go wrong at any of this choices you mention. If i were to choose between such products, without caring about system performance because of great hardware, i'd go all in and bet for BitDefender. I find it very mistake-proof and can really lock down your system compared to the other two options. A disadvantage i may highlight is the resource consuming.

    Anyways, in all three options you will find a great behaviour blocker and real-time protection.

    Another great thing to highlight is Emsisoft's quick and efficient support for any matter. As well, i find Emsisoft very light to regular users. Despite its RAM consuming, which doesn't really matter nor mark a difference on the performance, it doesn't actually reflect on the system usage. Nevertheless, I personally find the product a little buggy, which made me drop it about a year ago.

    As for Trend Micro, I could only hear great things, and tests support my opinion. Offers a great protection despite user's actions.

    Just choose whatever fits your system the best and remember nothing is unbeatable if the user has the Happy Clicker 2017 reward.

    Compared to other products, Emsisoft is anything but buggy. Report bugs and they are fixed within months. Some of the ones I report are fixed within hours or days. You guys are still following the last week of the month cycle.

    Even if you are squeaky clean, you don't want the criminals in the CIA into your stuff. Trust me on that. Besides, Trend is the easiest product to backdoor by far, check the Hacker Deterrent thread here and see how when I had Trend installed it's update channel was compromised and I was served a forged Trend Core Service process.

    Trend is.. Quite simply.. GARBAGE. Even worse, their threat labs are merged with the CIA and CIA Contractor Booz Allen Hamilton. We all know what scumbags those guys are, right?

    My vote goes to Emsisoft. Never had a single problem with it.

    Bitdefender I tried few times in past but ran into issues like slow network speed. Not sure whether they fixed it now.

    Incompatibility bugs mostly with drivers made in Argentina (country made laptop). Some threads I made about problems with Emsisoft.

    Need Help - Blackscreen when booting

    Need Help - Can't connect to the internet

    Have to disable firewall to be able to connect to WiFi


    It always seemed to have problems with my system and most of the times not even reinstall would fix. Most of the times it was related to the firewall. Ended up dropping it.

    I've tried Bitdefender 2018 and Trend micro 2018 both and:
    Bitdefender was a little buggy and heavy on my system and Trend micro had crazy FP, It recognized Firefox 57 Uninstaller as Suspicious file

    Bit Defender has always been plagued with bugs. I could never use it and quit buying it years ago after playing the constant install, have problems, uninstall game with them. I prefer products that use their signatures but don't come bundled with their bugs. Last year when I tried Bit Defender their firewall throttled by 1000/1000Mbps connection down to 180Mbps... Pathetic. Uninstalled, never looked back.

    This is exactly what I felt. This thing was so bad that even changing the Windows volume using my mouse buttons was affected. I could feel the milliseconds of delay between the click and the change on screen... and yes, I'm that crazy, I wasted some good minutes clicking up/down on the mouse and checking the screen to see the changes, and could easily see the delay. After I removed this trash from my PC, it magically went back to normal.

    Bitdefender no more, and I will be sure to tell all my friends and co-workers about the mess that this thing is!!!
