It sounds as if the Trend Micro Product is not truly Vista-compatible,
and is trying to access an area that Vista's default security doesn't
allow. As a test, try briefly disabling the User Account Control (UAC)
to see if the application then stops giving that error. If the error
stops, you'll know that the application isn't really Vista-compatible,
despite its maker's claims.
