I don't want Trend hogging resources while I'm working! I work with huge art files and Trend decides it wants to start scanning or whatever it's doing even though I have it set to scan only at 4 am. I don't care how good it is, if it interferes with my work, I'm about to delete it!

Hello geraldmwelch and welcome to the community! 

We understand that you do not want your work to be affected by the Trend Micro program, for it slows down your PC while working. However, we really do not advise our customers/users to disable the Trend Micro program so your protection won't be compromised. Here are some suggestions that we can give to you aside from disabling the Trend Micro program: 

Option 1. Use the Mute Mode feature of the Trend Micro program. 
Using the Mute Mode feature of Trend Micro Security

Option 2. Change the time of your Scheduled Scan after your work shift or before shutting it down.
Configuring the Scheduled Scan of Trend Micro Security

Option 3. If none of these options works for you, this will be our last option, as you requested, but again, we do not advise nor suggest you disabling the Trend Micro program, you may do this at your own risk. 
Disabling the Trend Micro Toolbar of Trend Micro Security software

I hope this helps.

Have a wonderful day!
