trend micro isn't detecting dangerous malware like
and mediaplex
i downloaded spyhunter4 and it found so much malware over 2000 that TrendMicro has not been detecting and i had to remove them manually. trend micro needs to update its database of malware sites and programs to stop such programs

Hi blackdragonexorsist,

Spyhunter4 is  Rogueware 
Don't compare this with TM
Spyhunter4 detect a lot of nothing and at the end they ask if you want to remove it, buy it!!!!!
So i think you better use a exorcist...............................................

Kind regards,

Hello, Tom! Wish you had a great time last Thanksgiving!

Welcome to the Community, blackdragonexorcist!

Those,, and such are mainly caused by adware installed on your PC and may be bundled with free programs you install from the internet. There are so many factors we need to consider since adware programs may behave so much like a certain legitimate program, so having those added in dangerous programs list may cause false detection. That's just one of the reasons, I'm afraid we won't be able to provide more details about it. That is why we also recommend to not just install any free programs from the internet.

Let us know if you have further inquiries. Have a lovely weekend to all! :)
