1.0 out of 5 stars Not enough configuration options., November 26, 2010
This review is from: Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security 2011 - 3 User [Old Version] (Software)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Well, here is a "security" package I hadn't tried before. Saw the Maximum Security version and decided to give it a try.

First of all, the installation process is literally barebones. You can't even change the installation directory, let alone choosing to install only the components you need. I suppose one redeeming feature of the setup process is that it gives you the option to install the package as trial without having to input your key right away.

The software itself is just as barebones as the setup process. Sure you have an antimalware scanner, a firewall, etc, but they cannot be fully customized. When malware is detected, for example, you are never given a choice on what to do. The software automatically deletes/quarantines the file. This can be problematic if you are working with a known false positive.

Other reviews on the internet mention Trend Micro as the virus scanner with the lowest detection rates, which doesn't exactly entice confidence. But I can't test that aspect, and it's not the reason I gave it one star.

The lack of full user options is the real deal breaker here. I understand that they are targeting inexperienced computer users with this program, but why can't they have multiple interfaces like BitDefender (one for beginners and one for advanced users)? How about Avira which uses a checkbox to switch between expert view and simple view in options? Even McAfee which I consider to be one of the worst security packages out there has more options.
