With a restore with Veeam and maintained exclusion list in TrendMicro I get a BSOD. An investigation by Veeam has shown that the cause of the Trendmicro driver is tmevtmgr.sys. This driver is corrupt and responsible for the BSOD. How can I remove the driver completely from the system. It is so that a restore with Veeam and deactivated virus scanner works perfectly.

Meanwhile I think that the Trendmicro virus scanner is not the right product for me.

Hi ap,

I think, the best you can do is after a system restore is to uninstall TM and do a new install, and this is of course the Veenam restore while TM still working and protecting, then you get older and newer files and TM get mixed-up.
Installing Internet Security 2017
Hope this work for you.

Kind regards,
