Although yesterday I mentioned how convenient Trend Micro’s Security for SMB was, I did not examine the effectiveness of Trend Micro’s protection.
I’ve had the luxury of dealing with many corporate computers infected with Malware, Spyware, Grayware, Adware and every other type of ‘ware. Trend Micro does well with most traditional viruses, but falls terribly short on it’s protection against adware and trojans.
By far the best Malware protection I’ve seen is from Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware. I scanned a real computer with Trend Micro’s Virus and Spyware removal engine first, then with Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware. Trend Micro found nothing. Below are the results of what was found by Anti-Malware – 192 files and 88 registry keys. All of which were removed successfully.
Registry Keys Infected: 88
Registry Values Infected: 4
Registry Data Items Infected: 1
Folders Infected: 25
Files Infected: 192
