Trend regularly closes and often does not initiate at startup.

-I'm not a Trend Micro representative-

Hello Peggy,
maybe that TM is running good but the icon in the taskbar is hidden by Windows. 

So please, do it for me when icon disappear:
Right click in taskbar and open Task Manager. You will see a screen with a lot of apps name, check if Trend Micro is here. 

HERE a video. How set wich icons are active in Windows 7 tasbar. 

Are you sure there are NOT other Security softwares that may conflict with TM?

Hi peggylayne01,

The upgrade is done silently by the Trend Micro Security software on your computer. And since you encountered an issue with it lately, it could've contributed  why it did not download the latest version.

We have just recently released the latest version of Trend Micro Security and the automatic upgrade is being deployed to users by region.
