So sorry to hear about this, brianhf

Are you able to check the activities of Trend Micro when it reached 34%? Is it doing a scan or an update in the background?
To resolve this, please do the following: 

1. Run this hotfix: High CPU Usage Hotfix
2. Double-click the Ti_150_win_en_LCE_hfb7.1.1021.exe file once the download is complete.
3. Accept the License Agreement, then click Next.
4. Click Install.
5. When a warning window appears, click Yes.
6. Restart your computer.

Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes.
