Hi @@quesdanthegreat,

Welcome to the Trend Micro User Community!

The reason it continues to prompt you to restart your device could be due to remaining files from the previous version of Trend Micro. You can use the Trend Micro Remnant File Remover Tool to eliminate these remnants from the old version.

After using the remnant file remover tool, feel free to download a fresh installer from this link.

Hope this helps!
