Isn't TrendMicro an anti-virus program?
by glb613 / January 1, 2007 7:51 PM PST

You also mentioned AVG in one of your posts and I know it is an anti-virus program. I wonder if your problems are caused by too many anti-virus programs rather than too many anti-spyware programs.

Trend Micro offers a few things, like antivirus, antispyware, firewall, and an interesting innovation called Transaction Guard, which gives you a GUI keyboard so you can enter credit card numbers with your mouse, rather than typing them in.
