Trend Micro toolbar makes Google search results unreadable

Can you read these search results?  I can't.  How do I change preferences on the TM toolbar to fix this?

Hi, jreitsema01

 

Welcome to the Trend Micro Home Users Community! 

 

Trend Micro Toolbar warns you about security risks with the websites you try to visit by showing the security rating. You can remove the highlighted search results by following the steps below:  

  1. Click Trend Micro Toolbar icon on Google Chrome 
  2. Then uncheck the "Rate links on Web Pages" option
  3. Make sure that "Rate links on mouse over" is checked.
  4. Hover your mouse over a website link from the search result to see the page rating.

In case you didn't know, Trend Micro recently launched version 17.7. You can download it for free here: How to upgrade Trend Micro to its latest version on Windows

I discovered  that the TM icon was not visible in my toolbar on Chrome.  I needed to click on the Extensions icon in the toolbar, then I could select TM and then pin it to the toolbar.  Once I did that your solution worked perfectly.

Thank you!

I do 'get-it' that the "Safelink" green underlining feature is a bit, "in your face", but I do pay attention to these, especially when doing any sort of financial transaction. I guess they're a bit of reassurance that the web address is "Good to Go", even if TM may well block the site if it is malicious.

Hi @telboy911,

 

Welcome to Trend Micro Home Users Community!

 

Yes, the Trend Micro Toolbar works with your web browser to warn you about any security risks associated with the websites you try to visit. It truly provides reassurance that a website is good to go.

For financial transactions online, you may use the Pay Guard browser to protect your data in your financial transactions against any security and identity threats.

Thanks for the solution, this is literally the dumbest feature, who could possibly have thought it was a good idea to make everything unreadable... seriously....
