Hi Amir, sorry for not getting back earlier. Since Trend Micro Security has an anti-ransomware feature in the latest version, it's not recommended to use both Trend Micro Security and McAfee Ransomware Interceptor at the same machine. 

One of our support agents has also sent you an email for detailed information. Please give it a look and let us know if you have other questions.

I used to use Malwarebytes 3.0, but I uninstalled it. At present, I am only using Trend Micro Maximum Security 2017, because it is the best the excellent antivirus program :-)

Hi ahsans!

Thank you so much for the kind words! We are so thrilled to know how our programs are able to satisfy you with the security that we provide. :)

Hello Jhja!

Thank you as well for posting your comment here. We understand your concern about our program not being able to take up PUP(Potentially Unwanted Program). 

The Trend Micro program runs on a real time basis as you use your computer but we need to consider the infections caused by thousands of new threats created every day. New threats cannot be detected until we have gathered enough samples for analysis. Then we will include the fix through the updates. That is why your Trend Micro releases updates in every 3 hours so that your computer will receive the latest detection pattern.

We continuously gather these data with the help of our customers and our initiatives to investigate this phenomenon on web security. Rest assured that we are taking this issue seriously.

Thank you for your trust to Trend Micro!
