App Control: Agent Not Starting With Trend Micro 11/XG Installed


Article ID: 288845


Updated On:


Carbon Black App Control (formerly Cb Protection)


  • Devices that have both Trend Micro XG or 11 installed and the App Control Agent are unable to start the App Control Agent Service
  • App Control service does not start on a reboot
  • Attempting to restart the service manually results in an immediate 1053: Service Timeout


  • App Control Agent: All Supported Versions


  • The cause of this is an injection of the Trend Micro DLLs into the Parity.exe process
  • Trend Micro kernel filter load prior to the App Control agent, a load of the DLL is injected into the process
  • This causes the Tamper Protection built into the filter driver to realize the process has been modified or changed and will stop the Parity.exe.
