Too much memory!

The Trend Micro Anti-Malware Solution Platform (PC, Trend Micro Internet Security v11.0) uses a massive amount of memory and percentage of CPU time. In fact, it uses twice the memory of Firefox, which is a known memory hog. My CPU runs way too hot--I keep a desk fan on it. Is there anything I can do about this?

This issue happening to me once awhile, though i'm only checking on memory usage. It can go over 1G ram. Your dev team really need to find out how this happening, asking us to reinstall is obvious lame.
