Not sure what it is & no time to research, but I wanted to let you know that I also have Maximum Security, a Lenovo notebook, run Windows 10, and use Edge (mostly). There must be something in your settings and/or configuration somewhere that is causing this. Good luck.

Hello maryann3645 and welcome to the Community!

Seems like this is a website redirection to a Tech Support Scam page. Can you please confirm if the screen you saw contains a number to call? 

Please check if you have the Trend Micro's latest version installed (which is version 12). There is already a Tech Support Scam Prevention feature in the latest version which will notify you if it's only a scam error. Resetting your browser will help resolve what you just encountered. You may refer to the instructions in the link provided.

Resetting your web browser for performance and website redirection issues

It would be best if you will be able to provide us the exact link where it had been redirected and the number that had been displayed on the page for the improvement of Technical Support Scam Prevention feature of Trend Micro. 

You may read this article to give you more info.
