Hi big.papa.g, 

Have you noticed the Trend Micro program's activity when this happened? Was it running a scan or installing an update? If so, it is normal that the program may use some of your computer's resources. If neither of this happened, you may add the game to the Trend Micro program's exception list. Here's how: 

Configuring the Exception List of Trend Micro Security Software

Let me know how it goes.
