I have had Trend Micro for several years. I am pleased with it. BUT if you are to improve anything, find a way that people can stop microsoft from downloading updates. They always screw something up. The last one has POP-UPS coming all the time. If you could help me get rid of them, I'd be very grateful.

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

introducing windows 10 april update (1803) there are a lot of new notifies. You can disable them from Windows settings panel. Probably you have all of them enabled. I do not know exactly the pages name in english version, so check at the attached image.

It is not a good idea to disable Windows Updates. These updates are very important to run better the OS and to fix security issue. A Third Party company like Trend Micro will never interfering with Windows Updates! 

In extraordinary cases you can simply disable them from setting page and selecting Update&Security. This is not a good option, anyway!!!

Welcome to the Community, Steve!

What kind of pop-ups? Max Slo is correct. I understand that problems arise everytime Microsoft releases some updates but it's not recommended to stop Windows Updates permanently, you need it so that your PC patch up some vulnerabilities in the system.

You can do what Max Slo advised and let us know if it helps. :)

Warm Regards....
