TrendMicro probably is large enough to have significant resources to update this program, yet small enough not to be consumed by corporate interests. As long as they keep in mind that this needs to be a barebones tool which is intended to be used by experienced, knowledgeable persons, I'll keep using it to clean filth-ridden PCs.
