    Hi
    I have trialed TDS-3 and don't want to purchase it and I would like to completely remove it from my computer. On the DCS website it says to remove the registry keys found under:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\Diamond Computer Systems\TDS


    Are these the keys i should delete?


    1. (default) (value not set)

    2. greet_enabled "1"

    3. regproc "0"

    Anything else i should delete? Thank you for your time.

    Start menu / TDS-3 / uninstall TDS-3


    That works.

    Thank you Detox, but i should have said i already did that and am still left with what i put in my first post. Is it completely safe to remove those 3 entries from the registry? I just don't want to cause problems with my computer by removing something i'm not completely sure about first. Normally i don't mess with the registry, but it says to remove the registry entries, under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\Diamond Computer Systems\TDS on the DCS website, to properly and fully remove TDS-3. Thanks.

    Hi,

    Yes, its completely safe to remove those entries, OR to leave them. They wont ever be accessed so they are no problem

    If you choose to remove them you should actually delete the "TDS" key (on the left, looks like a folder)

    Thank you Gavin. I'm still learning about all this stuff, so the help is appreciated. :)

    Hello, Picasso. :)

    What did you not like about TDS-3 that made you not want to purchase it? Just curious.

    Hi Dazed_and_Confused

    It's not i didn't like the program, it's just I don't feel I need that much protection at this time. I have a couple other anti-trojans, and many other serurity apps, so I feel my protection is pretty good, and I do pratice safe hex. Besides it can get rather expensive always purchasing new software. Maybe when TDS-4 comes out I'll look into that. :)

    You do have a point - but then one of the major factors in my buying TDS-3 was the free upgrade to a version of TDS4 upon its release :D
