I am constantly seeing pop ups that indicate that a file has been removed. They are very distracting. Can I prevent this from happening?

Hi scubablu and welcome to the Trend Micro Community!community!

I understand that you are distracted by the pop-ups and you want to prevent it from constantly showing up on you screen.

We apologize but, you cannot remove the pop-ups for the threat detection. It notifies you that there are some malicious/infected files or program on your computer and the Trend Micro Security program prevented it from running on your computer.

And, on the other hand, can you please send us a screenshot of the detection so we can see what the detection is.
Kindly refer on the link below on how to take a screenshot and you may, please click on the camera icon to select a picture from your computer.

Thanks so much!

Those repeated pop ups for the same alleged file being removed is crazy.  ba311.Ink file message has been popping up since I downloaded the 2017 Trend Maximum Security.
