Removing Trend Office Scan Without Password

You want to uninstall trend office scan client of a PC but you do not know the administrator password. To get around this you can modify a registry key that allows you to uninstall it without the password!

- HKLM\Software\TrendMicro\PC-cillinNTCorp\CurrentVersion\Misc
- AllowUninstall=1

This needs to be a DWORD.

If you are still unable to uninstall it, see my post to forcefully remove trend office scan client:
