The program started scanning my computer and got stuck at 12%. I ended the process but when i try to scan or update, it says that it is still scanning. I tried to end the entire program process to restart it but it will not allow me. What do i do?

Sorry for the late response. For your situation, we have a FAQ that has related information on this. Please try:
Scan does not finish and you cannot turn off Trend Micro Security software

If the scan is already stoped, please follow the instruction below to perform a scan again:

  1. Restart your computer
  2. Right-click on the Trend Micro system tray icon at the bottom right corner of your screen.
  3. Click Check for Program Updates, then The About Your Software window will appear and will automatically check for available updates.
  4. After update completed, double-click the Trend Micro system tray icon to open the main console
  5. Perform a scan again
  6. If the scan still hangs, refer to the "If the scan still will not complete" section in above FAQ to resolve

Please let us know how it works! If the problem still occurs, please send us a screenshot or a description of the error message for us. Thank you.
