    I'm a new Trend Micro -User and i don't understand the info about the virus definition updates.

    I get the info in the main screen that the program is up to date. But if i take a look at the components, i see

    that the single components have another date...at the moment 2 days before.

    Is it normal for Trend Micro?

    I would say that's normal. I assume that virus definition updates are distinct from engine/component updates. But I'm not totally sure with Trend Micro's. :)

    When was Trend Micro's latest program version released? Two days ago? Never mind. It's not. The latest version was released on Sept. 13, 2017.

    It's weird. So, the "release date" actually means installed date. :LOL:

    Hello,

    from experience with TrendMicro Products / Office Scan / Worry Free and Consumer products - Component Updates really mean part of module updates. (Parts of the Engine) Every component is to be seen as a separate entity. ;)

    Signature updates are a separate part from each module and are called pattern files.

    Location of pattern files on Trendmicro.com : Trend Micro Software Download Center

    Like this if it does not update or it failed you can always manually add them to your system. :D

    Best regards
    Val.

    I am used to see the date of signatures updates from other products. so I find it a pity that i cant see it @ Trend Micro.
