Why does my Trend Micro icon on my task bar always show "installing an update"? I have tried several things to get to stop showing this but nothing works. Is my software working or not, I can't tell. I have tried the check for updates function and it will show checking, then downloading an update until it gets to about 3% then it shows installing update but never stops installing. What's up with this?

Hi airforce26yrs


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, that is only at working hours. I am just a volunteer!
May i suggest to do a reinstall:
Un instal the normal way, notice your key!

Reinstalling the latest version of Trend Micro Security program
