Using Microsoft 7. Trend Micro was working. Then a scan stopped at 48% complete. Locked up and now I can't click on anything to get it started again.

Hi ed.gabriel,

This issue happens when the component handling the scanning process failed or stopped working. To troubleshoot the issue, temporarily disable your Trend Micro program for about 30 seconds, then enable it again. Follow the steps from the link below:

Quick or Full scan of the Trend Micro program hangs or stops at a certain percentage

If the scan still hangs or stops after performing all the steps from the link above, refer to this Knowledge Base article: 

Scan does not finish and you cannot turn off Trend Micro Security software

Please let us know how it goes. If the problem still occurs, please send us a screenshot or a description of the error message that it gives you.
