Question trend micro - ad aware conflict

Hi i have trend micro and ad aware installed on my computer. Recently trend micro stopped being able to scan. I called tech support and the tech claims that ad aware is conflicting with trend micro. I don't think that makes sense considering i had ad aware on the computer for well over a year now and never had a prob with either that or trend micro. It actually did work afterward but i think that is because he made me reinstall trend micro.
Anyone have an opinion aboutt this? Does it make sense that they would conflict after so long?
Thanks

Thanks. I think I'll install ad aware again and see. In the worst case i'll remove both again and do a fresh install. Do you think it could be a virus which disabled trend micro or something? Though malwarebytes didn't find any infections. I appreciate your input. Thanks
