With each scan, Troj_Poweliks is detected. I am instructed to restart my computer, but restarting doesn't remove it.

Sorry for the late reply. You can go to the following websites in the future to find what you need:
  • Threat Encyclopedia -- this is where you can find information on all known malware detected by us

For your question, why Trend Micro Internet Security could not remove Troj_Poweliks in your computer, it could be due to specific settings or a glitch on how Trend Micro Security was installed on your PC. To further investigate, we'd like to pass the issue you encountered to our support center, where our support engineer will request you to run our diagnostic tool that will auto send diagnostic data to help us analyze in-depth. Please let me know if you'd like to do that.
