Hello lesandnola,

Happy New Year and Welcome to the Trend Micro Community!

TBMessagingHost.exe is part of an unauthorized program installed on your computer as free software, we call this PUA or  Potentially Unwanted Application. PUA is designed to protect its bundled programs and make sure they remain installed or unchanged by other third party or Antivirus Programs. The TBMessagingHost.exe program is a part of the “Search Protect by conduit” program and is developed by Conduit Ltd, a company known for their malicious programs.

Here's a How-To guide in Uninstalling Potentially Unwanted Applications (PUA)

Hope this helps.

Kree :)
