Hi @TM_JB, thanks for trying our new community!

Yes, the reinstall is a good way to resolve this problem. It's good to hear that the this worked. 

To make sure that the debugging is off to prevent this problem in the future. You can refer to the steps below to manually disable debugging: 

Step1. Stop all Trend Micro Services 
Disabling or enabling your Trend Micro Security software - refer to "Disabling Trend Micro Program"

Step2. Change the setting
a. Go to C: Program Files Trend Micro AMSP. Look for AmspConfig.ini and copy-paste it to your Desktop.
b. Open AmspConfig.ini from Desktop, and look for DebugLogAMSPServiceStart, set it to 0 and then save it.
c. After saving AmspConfig.ini, please copy-paste this AmspConfig.ini from Desktop to AMSP folder.

Step3. Start all Trend Micro Services 
Disabling or enabling your Trend Micro Security software - refer to "Enabling Trend Micro Program"

It's quite a few steps to perform, but please let us know if your question is answered. Thank you!
