Disabling and re-activating your Trend Micro internet protection

If you’re having problems sending large attachments from Outlook, you may need to temporarily disable your Trend Micro internet security.

Here’s how:

  1. Locate and right click your Trend Micro icon (usually found on the right hand side of the task bar)
  2. Click the “Protection Against Viruses and Spyware” option
  3. A pop-up will appear asking you how soon you want to automatically reactivate your protection. If necessary, change the time to the shortest time period available (15 minutes).
  4. Send your email.
  5. To reactivate your protection before the reactivation time, right click your Trend Micro icon, and click the “Protection Against Viruses and Spyware” option again.

    Personally I do not like the Trend Micro Spam fillter. It is not user friendly and I just can’t get used to it. While you are at greater risk with out it I have found my mail system run’s far faster when it is disabled. Plus most of us can tell a spam message when we get it.

    Actually, I think I’ve come to the same conclusion. A couple of months ago I lost access to all my flash drives as well as my DVD drive… turned out I’d got a virus. Where was Trend Micro then? When it came back from the computer store they’d disabled one of the Trend components so I uninstalled and re-installed the software and since then every time I close Outlook I get a pop-up saying Trend Micro Anti-Spam has encountered a problem. So I may have to remove the Spam filter anyway. In January when I need to renew I may go back to AVG which I have on my laptop. I see you operate an anti-virus site… I’ll have to look at your recommendations.
