Fully uninstalling Trend MicroNovember 12, 2009
I had to get an installation of Trend Micro off one of my computers so I could install the Pro version and apply an existing 3-user serial number to it. The Trend support person told me to uninstall it a different way — a way that gets rid of ALL the processes and little bits and pieces that hang around with you uninstall software using Windows’ Add/Remove Programs.
Here’s what you do:
- Go to the Run box (on XP, it’s available from the Start button).
- Type tistools then press Enter.
- You get a dialog box with several tabs on it. Click the Uninstall tab.
- Click the Uninstall button to fully uninstall Trend Micro.
