Hi Darren

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.
Can you Turn TM off ( icon/rightclick/exit )
See of the problem persist.
Launcher.exe is a Java file from Oracle, in the Java folder (c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_79\jre\lib\)
Did you have the latest Java updates?
Here from you,

Kind regards,

Thank you for your input Tom and Amir. It's greatly appreciated. :)

Hello @darren and welcome to the community!

May we know when did you start getting error messages? Is it right after you install Trend Micro? Or is it after you install Trend Micro and reboot the computer? Can you please send us screenshot of the error message?

By the way, may we know what your Windows 10 build version? On your keyboard, press the Windows Windows Key+ R keys. The Run window should appear. Type "winver", then press ENTER. What build version do you see?

Also, please try what Tom suggested. To verify if Trend Micro program is causing the issue on your computer, kindly temporarily disable the Trend Micro program. Please refer to the link below:

Disabling Trend Micro Security software

Afterwards, please check if the problem persists. Please let us know how this goes.

Thank you!
