Hello wheffron,

The Trend Micro Anti-malware Solution Platform with 30% CPU usage is still within the threshold limit. Meaning, it is still normal.

In addition to that, you may want to double check because you might be referring to the overall CPU usage instead of the actual usage just for Trend Micro.

You may also consider removing conflicting programs with Trend Micro Security if you have one. You may visit this article for your reference:
