Summary

To increase the boot speed:
  1. Disable the Security Agent's self-protection.
    1. Log on to the WFBS console.
    2. Go to Security Settings > Group (Configure) > Client Privileges.
    3. Under Client Security section, select Normal.
    4. Click Save.
    Note: This feature is enabled by default and is meant to prevent changes in the SA's registries, files and folders on 32-bit operating systems. Enable self-protection again once the procedure is completed.
  2. Delay the RealTimeScan process from running at startup:
    1. Open the Registry Editor.
      ImportantAlways back up the whole registry before making any modifications. Incorrect changes to the registry can cause serious system problems.
    2. Go to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Amsp registry hive.
    3. Change the "ImagePath" from: C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\AMSP\coreServiceShell.exe" coreFrameworkHost.exe -m=qb -dt=60000" registry key to:
      C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\AMSP\coreServiceShell.exe" coreFrameworkHost.exe -m=qb -dt=120000
      You may change this to a bigger value if you want to delay the time longer.
      Note: The unit is in milliseconds. Also, the value can vary depending on your need. Delaying the real-time scan service has a security risk. This means that the machine will not have scanning during bootup.
