Only Kaspersky and Microsoft's own Windows Defender did better, avoiding any false positives.
Trend Micro did nearly as well in SE Labs' previous two rounds, blocking all downloadable malware but failing to stop a couple of targeted attacks.
Trend Micro blocked 100 percent of online malware in four of those months, dropping to 99.6 percent in only one.
Kaspersky had zero false positives, and Bitdefender only two, during that same period, but both had lower overall protection rates.
All three of Trend Micro's paid Windows antivirus products use the same underlying malware scanning technology, differing only in the extra features they offer.
Trend Micro's malware-detection engine was a top performer in recent lab tests, rivaled overall only by Kaspersky Lab and Norton.It takes about 2 minutes to set it up to shield critical files such as tax records or family photos.Trend Micro's Mute Mode stops updates, popups and scans.Trend Micro Maximum Security incorporates file encryption, a password manager and a cloud-storage scanner to check Dropbox and One Drive for malware.Trend Micro doesn't come with its own firewall, but there is a firewall "booster" to beef up the Windows one.It adds for a social-media scanner, a system optimizer and parental controls.
