Hi agrumney

Thank you for posting here. Welcome to Trend Micro Community!

I believe you're upgrading your Trend Micro program to the latest version. 

For you to upgrade your Trend Micro program, you need to have an administrator privileges.

Please switch first to your admin account and then upgrade your program.

Hope this helps.

Have a wonderful day!
