64-bit Roaming Profiles

I have a 2012 Standard Server. A mix of XP, Windows 7 Professional 32-bit and 64-bit computers. We use roaming profiles. This started 6 to 8 months ago where nothing was being updated upon logoff. We kind of worked it back to Trend Micro Password Manager being the problem.  At least so we thought.....

   Today I noticed my roaming profile wasn't updating. Once again in playing around it appears to be the Trend Micro Maximum Security agent itself. This is really hard to put a finger on. In looking a little father it appears as though it is only the 64-bit computers. The 32-bit computers seem to be updating fine.

   Anyway this is like finding a needle in a haystack. Does anyone know if, in general, there are problems with roaming profiles on 64-bit machines?

We have found that some security applications that do not have a 64bit app have caused issues with roaming profiles and 64-bit machines.  Chances are you found another one.  Yet with that said most will/have updated to be compatible with a 32/64 shared environment.  Look and see if the Trend Micro application is installed in the Program Files directory or the Program Files (x86).

I would also recommend that you contact Trend Micro to see if they have an update or a fix for your issue.

Trend is not in the (x86). This is really wild. It is like a one way sync. We first noticed it when we deleted files in out local Downloads folder. As soon as we rebooted they were back. Happened again just now. I uninstalled several programs which in turn removed some icons from my desktop. When I rebooted the icons came back. It's like at this point it is one direction. Server to local. Changes I make locally aren't getting back to the server. What kills me is that there are no errors to tell me what is going on.

   The only errors I see at logon are event id 6005 and 6006: The winlogon notification subscriber <Profiles> is taking long time to handle the notification event (Logon).

and at logoff event ID 1530: Windows detected your registry file is still in use by other applications or services. The file will be unloaded now. The applications or services that hold your registry file may not function properly afterwards.  

 1 user registry handles leaked from \Registry\User\S-1-5-21-134172435-2103378684-2671918280-1002:
Process 1740 (\Device\HarddiskVolume2\Program Files\Trend Micro\AMSP\coreServiceShell.exe) has opened key \REGISTRY\USER\S-1-5-21-134172435-2103378684-2671918280-1002\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders

Both related to logging on/off and profiles but nothing really points to anything....
