Hi dougplant

Welcome to TM Home users Community, a public site where volunteers try to help each-other , also there are TM Employees that can give answers.
I think you meant Activate TM??
Can you open the  Main Console and at the Top Click on About the software and what do you see, it should look like this. ( if it is TM Maximum Security )
Here from you.

Kind regards,

Hi dougplant,

Thanks for posting your concern here and welcome to the community!

May I ask what exactly do you mean by "activating your computer"?

By default, the Trend Micro program is enabled at startup. Usually, you'll see the Trend Micro icon on your system tray and when you hover your cursor on it, it will say “Starting your protection”. Is this what you mean?

Hoping for your response!
