System slowdown when Trend Micro is turned on

For the last few weeks I have noticed my systems hanging when either opening applications or the chrome browser, the problem goes away when I right click and exit Trend Micro, this problem has also been reported to me by several clients both Windows 10 & 11.

I have just finished building a system for a client, and the system ran very well until I installed Trend Micro, as now it takes it's time opening applications, I have been using this software for years and have also sold it to my customers, and I have never come across this problem, if it isn't resolved soon we will have no choice but to look elsewhere for an anti virus solution
