I found this on the Web - very easy, requires no app, works well.

To delete the Yaco.pro permission to send notifications to your Google Chrome browser, follow the below steps. These steps are for Google Chrome running on Windows and Mac devices.

1.    In the top right corner, click on Chrome’s main menu button, represented by three vertical dots. When the drop-down menu appears, click on “Settings“.

2.    Chrome’s “Settings” menu should now be displayed, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on “Advanced“.

3.    In the Privacy and Security section, click on “Content settings“.

4.    Click on “Notifications“.

5.    Find the Yaco.pro site and click the three vertical dots button next to it, then click on “Remove”.

Hi bwillsj,

Have you tried those steps?

Actually, if that yaco.pro is a browser add-on, Trend Micro won't detect it because it was manually installed on the browser and usually . You just need to manually remove it from the browser.
