"UIMgmt wants to make changes." I'm being asked by a pop-up window to allow this by entering my administrator password when my Mac boots up. What does this mean, is it a function of my Trend Micro Antivirus software, and should I allow it?

Hi jmersch,

Welcome to Trend Micro Community!

UIMgmt is one of the components of Trend Micro for MAC. It is asking your computer's permission for our program to run. Kindly agree to it and enter your credentials.

It should not appear again after you restart your computer. If it still reappears, you have to reinstall your Trend Micro program

You will need to uninstall your Trend Micro program first then install it using the latest installer: For detailed steps, please see the article below
