So this came with my dell and I assume it to be trash like all programs that come preinstalled on laptops. So I got my own anti virus (AGV), and tried to uninstall PC-cillin. It didnt seem to like that. I got through most of the uninstalling and then the process froze and wouldnt move for 10 minutes or so, so I forced it to end the program. Then i tried to shut down and start it up again, but it wouldnt respond to the shut down command, so I forced it to shut down. Now when I look through add/remove programs (or whatever it's called on vista) it shows PC-cillin as quite present (104MB of space, which is less than it took up before) but when I try to uninstall it, it says "this action can only be used for programs that are currently installed"

What happened? -.-

How to uninstall Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2007

You may have to reinstall it, then remove while in "Safe Mode".

Please note, that if you already have AVG installed, then you may have a problem reinstalling Pc-cillin. If that happens you may have to uninstall AVG as well to do this, then reinstall it after the other anti-virus has been removed.
