IObit and Trend issues

I have Trend Micro Security for over 4 years. Now it tells me to remove IObit uninstaller to prevent interference with Trend Micro software. Why after two plus years having IObit does Trend now want it removed?

Hi rpttsn,

Look here:
https://esupport.trendmicro.com/en-us/home/pages/technical-support/1061023.aspx
TM is doing more to protect your computers, so there is overlap and interference posible.
2 AV/ malware scanners, blokkers realtime is not a good idea.

Kind regards,
Tom

Thanks Tom. It's only a uninstall program. Nothing else that I can see.

Hi rpttsn,

Some uninstallers also scan realtime, maybe thats the case? And Yes, like Jhja said Revo, i use it also for 5 years i think, Has also a realtime scan but default it is off!

Kind regards,
Tom

IObit uninstaller isn't listed, but if you can't use it try Revo Uninstaller, I've used it for years and think it does a good job.

Mine has been working well with no problems also. I was thinking about installing it again. I guess the new updated version of Trend would not load with IObit on the computer.
