Hi TM For the last few days whenever I log into my Windows 10 PC I am advised the TM status is "Protection disabled" after just a few seconds only. Restart is required. Your conversations show a 'Restart required' update was automatically released (June 27) - assuming I received the update, why has this apparently stopped working ?

Hi r.alexander

I suggest to reinstall or upgrade to 2019 version.
Reinstalling the latest version of Trend Micro Security program
Hope this works for you.

Kind regards,

Hi r.alexander, 

While Tom's suggestion is a quick fix for this, I highly suggest you check out this link and follow the instructions in it. 

"Protection Disabled" error message appears when opening the main console of your Trend Micro Security program

Let us know how it goes. :)
