I have Trend Micro Internet Security installed on my computer. For some reason, a few days ago, the Administrator Icon started flashing at the bottom of my screen and I cannot close it. It will not allow me to click on any of the icons at the bottom of my screen. Prior to this icon displaying at the bottom, I kept get unresponsive script errors and plug-in errors. Can you please help? Thank you!

Welcome to the community. According to your description, the Administrator Icon you mentioned seems like User Account Control (UAC) shield icon, and it was requesting the Administrator Permission for a program.

My suggestion is to press Windows key + D key to minimize all running programs and click the UAC shield icon to confirm the request.

 If above solution does not help, please provide some screenshots of errors and suggestions, and a bit more detail (e.g. basic PC info, actions taken before errors occur)? So we can understand more background before recommending a solution.
