My Trend Micro Maximum Security does not start.

I have followed/performed steps from sites below yesterday and Trend Micro Maximum Security worked. However, when I booted my computer today, Trend Micro Max Security does not start again. I have also used Trend Micro Diagnostic tool to stop and restart components but it still failed to restart.

- Checked there are no conflicting programs based on steps on site,,

- i have reinstalled Trend Micro Max Security based on instructions from site,
