I am a bit confused as how to fix this problem. It appears that my Trend Micro is not really running even thought it indicates it has been succefully updated and scanning daily. My computer has been slow so I checked in the add and remove programs and Trend Micro has not used since Nov 3rd. What should I do I have done automatic updates and still have problems. Thanks for any help you can give me.

I would first try Un and Re installing it.

I don't think the date shown in add & remove means a lot. I just checked my Comodo CIS and it said last used on 21st June which is nonsense.

Is there another reason to think that your Trend Micro is not running as normal?

The Add Remove programs area does not truly reflect the last time you used most programs or even updated them. If everything else indicates that it has been running, then I'd not be concerned.
