System Update



A hotfix is a workaround or solution to a single customer-reported issue. Hotfixes are issue-specific, and are not released to all customers.


A new hotfix may include previous hotfixes until Trend Micro releases a patch.


A patch is a group of hot fixes and security patches that solve multiple program issues. Trend Micro makes patches available on a regular basis. Non-Windows patches commonly include a setup script.

Your vendor or support provider may contact you when these items become available. Check the Trend Micro website for information on new hotfix and patch releases:
