Trend micro itself could possibly be the problem. It's rare but sometimes third party av/security suites cause issues with some win 7 machines.
Assuming your windows is legit. You can just use microsoft security essentials in its place. In that scenario I would also get the free version of malwarebytes antimalware and scan manually now and then.
