Hi vinni.singh,

We're sorry to hear of your experience.

We can try to add the files into Trend Micro Security's whitelist. Here's how: Trend Micro Security keeps detecting files or programs that are already added to the Exception List

Please let us know if this solution will work for you.

I've been having this problem as well. The solution you posted does NOT work, neither does reinstalling TM. I've been reporting this issue for the last couple years and nothing ever gets done about it. I'm about to switch myself.
