So my mum bought a bundle pack for 6 computers so we went to put them on the computers. We did 3 and everything was fine but after I installed it on my computer, I went to go to google and I got an error.

GamePanel.exe - Application Error
The application was unable to start correctly (0x00000e5). Click OK to close the application.

I asked my brother and he said to just restart my computer because I had just installed something. I did, entered my password and now multiple of these boxes came up with a different exe each time. I notice Steam.exe and Discord.exe. I then realized that nothing opened up automatically like it used to. So it seems that after installing Trend Micro, nothing will now open up automatically. What can i do to fix this? I can't even open up these programs normally just by clicking on the shortcut.

I'm not exactly certain what one of the techs here will tell you, but if I had that situation, I'd disconnect from the internet and do, at least, a quick scan, if not a full one (which takes a bit longer). Something seems a bit off to me and It appears that you may have some problems which may not have been picked out before Trend Micro was installed. Learn how to use it. I've had it for about a decade now and would not switch(after having tried many others), you have to find out how to use it properly.

Hi peace.love.angels and welcome to the community! 

I understand that you are having trouble opening the programs on your computer after installing the Trend Micro program. 

The 0xc00000e5 error code is quite common among all versions of Windows systems and it is fairly broad.

If the error was gone, follow the steps below on how clean install the Trend Micro program: 
  1. Uninstall the Trend Micro program using the Diagnostic Toolkit
  2. Use the Trend Micro Remnant File Remover tool.  This hotfix removes any leftover Trend Micro files from your computer so that you can successfully install the latest version of your Trend Micro Security Software.
  3. Click here to see the steps on how to install the Trend Micro Maximum Security 11.0.
