I'm using a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series. 
Windows 10 Home Single
2018 Microsoft Corporation

Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8250U CPU @ 1.60GHz

8.00 GB

64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor

Trend Micro Maximum Security.

I'm having delays in startups and the battery time is affected ever since I installed Trend Micro. The protection it gives is the best. But it is affecting the Laptop's performance. Please give me a solution for this ASAP.

Hi, Kimster07

Try to check first what start-up programs are enabled on your computer. To do that, you may follow the steps below:

1. Open Task Manager. (Ctrl + Alt + Del) or right click on your taskbar and select "Task Manager".
2. Select the "Startup" tab.
3. If you don't want a specific program to start after boot, right-click on the startup item and select "Disable".

Try to check if the startup is still slow. Also, can you elaborate more on how is it affecting the battery time?

Let me know if there are any updates on your end.
