Uninstall Trend Micro Officescan Client

Here's the post that helped me:

It worked for me using the Corporate Edition Version 8.

For reference, here's a copy:

To remove / reset the uninstall password for Trend Micro OfficeScan

Edit Ofcscan.ini file. (Do a search.)

On Windows.95/98/XP machines it is usually in C:\Windows\Ofcscan.ini

On Windows.NT/2K machines it is usually in C:\WINNT\Ofcscan.ini

Open the Ofcscan.ini file using notepad search for the [INI_CLIENT_SECTION]

Find the line reading Uninstall_Pwd= and type a # at the beginning of the line to comment it out.

Insert a new line saying Uninstall_Pwd=70

Save the Ofcscan.ini file and retry the uninstall. When it prompts you for a password, enter a '1'.

Word 2007 connecting to printer

I have been corrupting Word documents of all types, having Word "recover from serious errors", and generally having to reboot my PC more than ever since installing Office 2007.

From a quick google of Word 2007 "connecting to printer", I am not alone. Although most posts reference running Windows Vista as well, I personally have already reverted to XP again.

Without much research as to why, I can tell you setting my default printer to Microsoft XPS Document Writer now allows Word 2007 to open faster than 2003, from what I remember.

For those who really need help, click Start | Printers and Faxes, right click Microsoft XPS Document Writer, and then click Set as default printer.

Fortunately, I really like the XPS Document Writer, and I typically telecommute. For those of you wired to a LAN and suffering with now having to flip between printers, let me know if you find a solution.
