    My Asus EEEPC came with Trendmicro Security installed on it. The documentation says its the first version and you cant upgrade to it from any of TM's other packages. Issue is I dont want it and it wont uninstall. Any help here? Ive tried uninstaller software, trendmicro removal tools, and safe mode to no avail.

    You might also try to re-install first, then uninstall... in case it got broken somehow. And another tip would be AppRemover ;)

    Good luck.

    I uninstalled it myself.

    I deleted the program files folder, ran a registry scan, cleaned out the %appdata%\local and %appdata%\roaming files, and manually deleted TM's services by hand. All is good now.
