Best way to uninstall a Trend Micro Antivirus package?

Post by flashthedeveloper on 13th September 2012, 5:55 pm

Sure, I know I can simply uninstall it from my control panel but the last time I uninstalled antivirus software (Norton) it was a nightmare because it never fully uninstalled.

It would start doing scans 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 etc etc months after it was supposedly uninstalled.

I'm guessing all these big software houses never let you fully uninstall in the hope they can win you back.

So my long winded question is, is there a sure fire way to competely remove a Trend Micro software package from my pc?

Thanks.

it looks as if it has worked perfectly. Thanks Jay.

On another note, I've just installed a free version of AVG.

It states that I don't have a firewall with the free edition. Should I just use the free microsoft one that came with my windows 7 pro? If yes, will that interfere with AVG?

Thanks again.

Yes, run the OS firewall. It'll work fine with AVG.
