Too Intrusive

Too many times I am downloading a file and it almost completes the download, and then it just fails to complete. No message, nothing.  I turn off TrendMicro monitoring my downloads and the download completes just fine.  If your software wants to interrupt my download, why not notify me before it takes any action, and let me decide whether to abort the download or not .  I'm an adult, I can take some of the responsibility.  I guess basically I am saying backoff.
