How do I run SolidWorks solid modeling program and Trend Micro Internet Security at the same time? Trend Micro is requiring too much memory.  SolidWorks needs a lot of memory too.  I have 8 GB RAM installed.  Trend Micro uses 63% of this!! Even if I knew how to disable Trend Micro, I would hesitate to do so.  It is great protection.

Hi jw_robinson, 

The Trend Micro program may use some of your computer's memory when running a scan or installing an update. However, if your computer is idle and your CPU usage remains at 63%, there could be an issue. Can you please take note of your computer's activity when the CPU usage is high -- i.e. what programs are running, etc. 

You may also experience a slowdown if SolidWorks is added to Trend Micro's Folder Shield as it prevents every process from accessing your program. You may remove it from there and add it to Exception List instead:

Hope this helps. Please keep us posted. :)
