Hi @hlongfamily and welcome to the community!

Thank you for posting your concern here.

I understand that you keep getting a pop-up for taskeng.exe. Just to verify, is the pop-up coming from the Trend Micro program? Since when did you start encountering this issue and what was the last activity that you've done on your PC before encountering this pop-up?

To inform you, taskeng.exe is a Windows process for the Task Scheduler Engine program which tracks the tasks that need to be ran on your compuler. For us to further check this, may we request for the screenshot of the pop-up?

If the pop-up shows the specific location of this exe error and shows Microsoft as its publisher, it is very much possible that it's not a malware but rather an application error on your PC.

We'll be waiting for your updates.

Thank you and have a great day!
