100% disk usage

I have a notebook where disk usage occasionally peaks at 100% and becomes unusable.

When i sort by usage it's usually Trendmicro utilizing it.

When TM is disabled then it becomes normal.

I tried to uninstall and reinstall TM, problem still exists.

Any advise please ?

TM Maximum security version: 16.0.1378
