Uninstall Trend Micro Officescan Client

Here's the post that helped me: http://www.computing.net/security/wwwboard/forum/20289.html

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'.
