For some reason my PC has just started giving me 'Protection Disabled' messages. I haven't installed any new software or hardware recently. Does anyone know why this might be happening and how to fix? Many thanks.

Hi peter.oborn

Can you go to Main / info about the software then it checks for updates.
Else  go to programs, Trend micro, "Trend Micro Diagnostic Toolkit"  and if the toolkit started:
Click on "C" then on "5" til 5 comes up again, then click on "4"
Hope that solve the case.
Here from you.

Kind regards,
