I have activated my purchase of Maximum Security and everything is working fine. Problem is that I will frequently find myself in a situation that finds my machine without access to the internet. Is it possible to offline update Maximum Security using the patterns downloaded from http://downloadcenter.trendmicro.com/index.php?clk=left_nav&clkval=pattern_file&regs=NABU

Hello paul.furtado and welcome to the Community!

Thank you for letting us know about this question that you have in mind.

Yes, you may update the Trend Micro program on your computer by downloading the pattern from our website. Although, when it comes to updating your security, doing it manually is not that reliable as updates for Trend Micro Security is already cloud based. It will still be better and recommended to have have the program updated automatically.

Should you have any other concern, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Enjoy the rest of the week!

Thanks for the immediate reply. I understand that the most efficient way to update the product is online but unfortunately in my case, there will be instances where I will be forced otherwise. In these cases my only alternative is to update it offline. Can you guys share the procedures for doing so?

Hello paul.furtado! Welcome to the community.

We do apologize but our program is limited with that updating scenario. To share, the Trend Micro Security program that you are using makes use of the Real Time scan that protects your computer even without the need for you to do a manual scan. This process makes use of the Internet to check for the latest threats online every 3 hours. This requires you to be connected to the Internet otherwise, the patterns that our program will only refer to the most recent definition update that your Trend Micro program has acquired.

I do apologize if this has caused any inconvenience.

I hope this helps.
