When Trend Premium Security is installed on a new windows 10 laptop, Forza Motorsport crashes immediately. Disabling Trend by right click taskbar icon had no effect - still crashes on startup. Exited Trend completely and Forza Motorsport runs as expected. Uninstalled Trend and Installed Macafee - no problem. Uninstalled mcfee and enabled windows defender - no problem. Is there a reason that Trend is causing issues?

-I'm not a Trend Micro representative, but I like to give you some suggestion-

Hi bob.

I'm using Forza without any problem.
Just create an expception as suggested from Representative. 

I created an exception for the Steam, Origin and GOG (the stores I use) main folders. 
So, installing a game for example from Steam, it is 'automatically' under exception cause it is installed in a subfolder of the Steam main folder.

Just to be sure of the content of these folders, you can start a manual scan every few months.
