Q&A Trendmicro is a very decent product.

It's a very good product but I have to say it's BB is not as good as it may seem because most of its detection are cloud based not BB based. The cloud blocks the program upon execution, kind of similar to Windows Defender but WD has better offline signatures. Their notification is very plain and simple so its not always to understand what was blocked by the cloud and what by the BB. The BB is pretty good and very good at blocking suspicious script commands.
They should focus more on performance. The app launching time with Trend Micro is the worst of any AV I tested in the last 2 years. Even when you just close an app and relaunch it few seconds later, it still loads slowly the next time. The other issue is, malwares can't be removed from the quarantine. There's literally no option in the UI to manually do so which is extremely absurd.

they are aware of performance issues at least since 2018 version (beta tested for a long time, and have reported that issue every single time) and...well 2020 version, is not better, last time i talk with the beta test manager, the response was: is working like we want it to be.... ( dont get me wrong i like the product..but...issues..issues)

Everyone has they're own opinions on products lol......... kaspersky works for the russians. Avast sells you're data. Norton works with the FBI. mcafee also works with the FBI. No matter what product you use it's always something....:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
Maybe some truth but as a long time KIS user I see no evidence of the Russian government?
