Sometimes free isn't a good thing.

The Trend Micro Internet Security software was provided free for 6 months with the new HP 2in1 I bought from Best Buy. I am removing it today because it is using to much CPU, memory and hard drive access. The 2in1 came with a HDD but this software would pin the drive to 100% and rendered the 2in1 useless. I upgrade the drive to an SSD but that only help resolve the drive utilization. The CPU utilization is still high and so is the memory usage and the 2in1 is unresponsive at times because of this. I wonder if the Geek Squad recommend this software promotion for this 2in1????
