Well, I'm going to hazard a guess and say that the software wasn't written for Vista, which will shoot that down, and further, that it was never written for IE7, which (I've heard) is moving away from the giant security mess that is ActiveX.

Trend Micro is (in my opinion) substandard antivirus. Go get Nod32, as people around here like to recommend, and uninstall the Trend Micro stuff. With maybe one or two exceptions, any security software that comes free with hardware isn't worth the time it takes to mess with it, and sometimes can do more harm than good.

In short, my suggestion is: uninstall it, and don't worry about it. If you really, really, really want it installed, contact TM and ask them how to get it to work with IE7.
