Trend Micro and PsExec don't play nice

Hi all,

I'd been using PsExec for about 2-3 months before the powers above me
decided to replace Symantec Anti-virus with Trend Micro SMB and Trend
Micro's Anti-Spyware.

Ever since then, psexec.exe has been picked off by TMAS and I'm
getting annoyed with running around to each computer on our network to
do routine software updates.

I've tried searching on the web to find free alternatives to PsExec,
and I've come to 2 conclusions:
1) None exist.
2) My feeble attempts with search keywords aren't working.

Can anyone give me any advice as to where to go from here?

Trend Micro interferes with all sorts of legitimate administration
utilities, which is why I've moved several customers away from it. Rather
than search for alternatives for PsExec (something you will continue to
have to do with other similar programs) maybe you should consider an
alternative to Trend Micro. If you're not able to do so due to the powers
that be, and can't disable "Potentially unwanted applications", maybe the
powers that be should be doing the searching for a PsExec replacement :-)
