I had a problem similar to yours this morning on start-up. What worked for me was to disconnect from the internet to avoid any outside interference, then re-start, then perform a scan while still disconnected. Nothing showed on the scan (quick scan), but it appears to have solved the problem. Have you tried this?

Thanks for your advice, woodartisan55! :)

Hi Markbuddenhagen,

Sorry to hear that you are experiencing this problem with the Trend Micro program. Kindly make sure to remove/uninstall any conflicting programs as having two security programs may cause performance issues.

By the way, I see here that you also contacted our Technical Support. Kindly take note of the Service Request number that was sent to you after contacting our support.

Have a good day!
