Since new viruses appear daily...

Each antivirus grows and slows the machines down.
Capital punishment for virus/spyware writers?

Your post is too light on details for a meaningful answer.

I leave my computer on all day and have noticed that my browsing speed has been slowing down. This started after I installed Trend Micro. I have also noticed that the clock is very slow as well. That has never happened before. I'm considering uninstalling the program

Seems proper for those DOS based Windows.

They were known for issues with the timeclock, resources and such. No cure was issued and none is expected.

Fast forward to today and new users of Windows 98/ME don't understand how buggy it was back then and post about the issues that will never be fixed.

In those days, you would reboot to get the speed back. Since you are still using the same OS and no patches have arrived to address this issue, you still get to reboot when need be.

Trend folder grew to 1.8 gigs. After making sure license and key were written down from inside program, if not already saved. I uninstalled, ran tweaknow regcleaner and reinstalled trend.
I may leave trend behind, as the 2005 V looks like a bloated program. Becoming an all in one sludge factory.

I have TrendMicro PC Cillian 2005 and I love it. It has never slowed my computer down. I'm on my third Internet Security Suite in a year and half, and I wish I had a package like this to start with, instead of McAffee or Norton. What a waste of money.

I think you may have some spyware/adaware and or trojans/worms, because PC Cillian wouldn't do that.

A lot of people don't realize an security suite alone is not going to keep all that crap off your machine. It is not designed for Trojans, Worms, Rootkit Malware, etc. You need a good Spyware, Adaware program as well.

There is a site that offers some software called ProcessGuard, WormGuard, PortExplorer, Trojan Defense Suite-3 or TDS-3, and believe me, they are true to there word, nothing will get in your computer unless you allow it. Check it out! There prices are so reasonable, I was surprised. I don't know I done with out it, (I kept reformatting my computer).

Now that I have the programs from of them) and my PC Cillian 2005, Microsoft AntiSpyware, Adaware SE Pro with v1.05 build, and of course Acronis True Image 8.0 to image my drive(s), I don't have to worry about anything unless I'm stupid and click on something I shouldn't have.

I think that these programs are a small price to pay in order to keep a safe and secure computer, and not to worry!
