Does the Trend Micro virus program run automatically at a set time everyday or do I have to run it manually?  If I can run it at a chosen time, how do I set it?

Hi @griggs83! 

Thank you for trying out our new Trend Micro Community.

To answer your query, the Trend Micro program actually runs on real time basis and scans for viruses whenever it is enabled. It also have a smart scheduled scan feature that automatically start at an appropriate time based on your recent computer usage. But you can also set up your preferred scan schedule.
