-I'm not a Trend Micro representative, but I like to give you some suggestion-

Hello,
please, access Programs&Features (Windows10), or anyway run 'appwiz.cpl' to open installed apps list screen.
Search and deinstall 'ByteFence Anti-Malware'; 'ByteFence Module' and any other kind of program about -ByteFence-.

On various knowledge base around the net I see that in some circumstances you have to deinstall it accessing Windows in safe mode.

Check also in your browsers in order to delete ByteFence extensions, if exist.

Let us know. :)

Thank you for your advice.  I did delete Byte Fence from Programs & Features.  I think it is gone.  Will see if anything pops up again.  I appreciate your time in helping me resolve this issue.
