Hi @flysky331, thanks for asking in Trend Micro Community!

For your issue, we assume this message appears since your scan is unable to remove or clean an infected file since the logged-in user account did not have full "read/write" access to where the threat was found (such as a CD-ROM or network drive). So we suggest using the Trend Micro Anti-Threat Toolkit with Clean Boot and the performing a Full Scan to check if the threats will be removed. Check out this article for step by step directions on how to do it.

Running a scan using your Trend Micro Security software - refer to "Performing Quick or Full Scan"

It's quite a few steps to perform, but please do let us know if it solves your issue. We'll assist you if you still encounter problems.
