Hi pbhowell,

This is won of them:

For your issue, I suggest re-installing Password Manager to reset the program and patterns. Since I suspect the issue you're encountering is related to Password Manager, which is bundled in Trend Micro Security installation, hopefully, a reinstall will reset everything and remove the error. Please refer to following pages to reinstall your Password Manager:
  1. Uninstalling Trend Micro Password Manager on Windows
  2. Downloading and installing Password Manager on Windows and Mac
If you're still seeing the expiration error message, please provide a description or picture of the message, I'll help you further. Thank you!

Kind reards,
Tom

Hi Tom, thanks for helping! It was good advice!

Hi pbhowell, have you tried the solution which Tom mentioned above? If the problem persists, provide more detail on what is happening. e.g. error message (if there's any), basic PC info.

Some screenshots would also be helpful! You may refer to this page to take pictures for us. Thanks!
