Thank you for asking here! Trend Micro Internet Security, by default, definitely downloads the updates automatically for you. It constantly checks online for security updates to stop new threats every 3 hours. 

For your reference, here's a online doc for the steps to manually get these updates, if you ever wanted to do this by yourself (e.g. PC has been off for several weeks):
Updating your Trend Micro Security software - see "Trend Micro Security (2015-2016)" section

Thanks and please let us know if you have more questions!

My computer automatically disables Trend Micro and recommends rebooting to fix the problem, I've rebooted 3 times and the problem continues. Why is this happening?

how do I stop updates before I go into screen saver mode? Windows 10 PC locks up when updates in background and I am away from PC
