Hi wheatens444,

Welcome to Trend Micro Community!

Please make sure that you don't have other security software installed on your computer other than Trend Micro. You may refer for the list of incompatible sofwares/potentially unwanted programs and how to remove it:

Mine took over 2 hours to 'start protection' yesterday.  I've been having problems for the past 2 weeks and today again the 3rd remote to my pc and apparently all fixed.  I rebooted my new laptop that only takes a minute to boot up, but still waiting half an hour for protection to start... why is this happening ?

We updated Windows, uninstalled and reinstalled TM and yes, it worked initially until I did the update that was available and now I'm still having the same problems

What is going on ?  Never had a problem in the past like 10 years until now
