When the Download process begins, a TrendMicro Downloader dialog box appears:
Select Save As (from “Save” dropdown) and navigate to the folder where you’ll put the Downloader, then click Save.
Once the download completes, click Open Folder (in IE), then double-click the Downloader. The User Account Control dialog appears, asking “Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer?”
Click Yes. The Downloader will complete the download and begin the installation. It will unpack the files, then check if your system meets the minimum requirements.
If your computer passes the system check, a window appears letting you choose the version you wish to install, with the Paid version selected by default.
Leave it as is, or click the Trial version button, then click Next. The License Agreement appears.
Titanium recommends a default location for the installation: C\:Program Files\Trend Micro. You can change this if you wish.
Read the License Agreement. If you agree with the License Agreement, click Agree and Install. Titanium will begin the installation, scanning your system for existing threats.
If you have installed a Trial version, when the installation is complete, a window will appear, saying “Installation Competed.”
To receive the latest news and offers from Trend Micro, please provide your email address.
If you have installed a Paid version, a dialog appears, asking you to enter your email address to activate your protection.
One of two alternate processes will now occur:
- If you have activated Trend Micro software before, simply enter the email you used before and click Next. The program activates and the installation is complete.
- If you have not activated Trend Micro software before, enter your preferred email address and click Next. A dialog appears, asking you to Enter Account Information.
Enter your account information and click Next. A window appears for you to check what you entered.
If your entries are accurate, click Next. A window appears, indicating Protection Activated. You may print this page.
Click Finish. The Installer closes and the Titanium Console opens, displaying also a Welcome screen.
Depending on whether you’ve installed a Trial or a Paid version of Titanium, you will see a different Welcome screen and Console.
Check “Don’t show this page again” if you don’t want to see the Welcome screen in the future, then close it by clicking the X to view the Titanium Console behind it.
The Titanium Console shows threats stopped, lets you execute scans, gives you access to reports, and lets you configure settings, using mouse-clicks from easy-to-use screens. Titanium Internet Security Console also gives you easy access to the Privacy scanner and protects you from bad URLs on social media.
After a short time, Titanium will automatically download and install any updates. On Windows 8, a popup will also appear, where you can get More Tools, including those for the Windows 8 Modern UI: Trend Micro Security Center, Trend Micro Go Everywhere, and Trend Micro SmartSurfing.
