Hi Everyone,

I'm running Windows XP Home Edition with SP2 and I have two folders in my Documents and Settings folder that I want to get rid of. One is '.housecall6.6' and is 71.5 MB in size. The other is '.housecall' and is 29.8 MB in size. I know that both of those buggers are associated with Trend Micro's online virus scanner.

I need to know how to un-install those things. Neither one of them is listed in my Control Panel Add\Remove thingy so I cant get rid of them that way, and neither of their folders has an un-installer in its folder.

I know that I could just just delete their folders but I don't think that is the right way to get rid of things like that.

Do any of you guys have any suggestions?

Thanks,

Wendy

When you run housecall it creates that folder for itself that can be deleted once you've finished scanning.
It isn't technically a program

Right click on it and delete it.
