Why does a Trend Micro page launch each time I start my computer after installing Avast?

by on December 6, 2010

Q: I downloaded the free version of Avast Antivirus and now a Trend Micro page launches Internet Explorer.

What can I do to stop IE from launching automatically. I am scanning now with an antimalware program, but nothing has shown up.

  1.  

    Check Start > All Programs > Startup

    And see if any of the shortcuts in there are for the Trend Micro Page, if there are, delete them.

    If you don’t see them in there, go Start > Run and type in msconfig. Click on the startup tab, and look for the URL listed in there, uncheck the box to the left and click okay.
