Hello busler.dana ! Welcome to the community!

We understand that you are unable to access your camera and receiving an error that you have just provided.

From what we have checked, this might be more related with the camera's drivers running on your computer.

Furthermore, you can check if Trend Micro program is the one causing the problem by temporarily disabling the protection.

Just locate the the Trend Micro icon on your taskbar and then do a right click on it then select Exit. Once that is done, kindly check if you will still have the same problem.

If the problem occurs only when the Trend Micro protection is enabled, kindly try adding the camera's program files on your computer to the Trend Micro Security's exception list.

Configuring the Exception List of Trend Micro Security software

I hope this helps
