Hello Ulrich.Ege! Welcome to the Trend Micro Home Users Community!

We would like to know more about your inquiry. Do you mind telling us more about what you are experiencing with the certutil.exe?
Are you having difficulties accessing this specific file or does the Trend Micro Program installed on your computer blocks this executable file?

Certutil.exe is a command-line program that is installed as part of Windows Certificate Services on servers. It will show if a site has a official certificate. 
Do not delete it because it is a part of Windows

Just wanted you to know what certutil.exe is about. It is a Windows file and has nothing to do with Trend Micro. It needs to be in your files for safety on sites Windows opens.
