Do not install new Mac OS X until compatible TrendMicro is available

Apple will be releasing the new version of OS X,  next week. Information Technology Services (ITS) recommends not installing the new version of OS X until ITS announces a compatible version of TrendMicro antivirus.

Attention. Do not install the new Mac OS XTests of El Capitan indicate:

  • upgrading to the new version of OS X with TrendMicro antivirus installed results in the computer not functioning.
  • installing TrendMicro antivirus on a computer that already has El Capitan installed results in the computer not booting correctly.

Both of these instances will require a technician to resolve the issue. Typically a new version of TrendMicro that is compatible with new versions of OS X are made available by the manufacturer within a few days of the final release of the new version of OS X.
