How do you remove the uninstall password for Trend Micro Worry Free Business Security?

When attempting to uninstall Trend Micro Client/Server Security Agent, you may be prompted for an uninstall password.  To remove this feature, perform the following steps:
  1. Click Start - Run.

  2. Type: regedit

  3. Click OK.

  4. In Version 6 and previous versions:

    Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TrendMicro\PC-cillinNTCorp\CurrentVersion\Misc

    In Version 7:

    Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TrendMicro\UniClient\1600\Misc.

  5. Double-click AllowUninstall and change its Value to 1.

  6. Click OK.

  7. Double-click NoPwdProtect and change its Value to 1.

  8. Click OK.

  9. Close regedit.
You can now uninstall Trend Micro Client/Server Security Agent without being prompted for a password.

If this does not apply to your version of Trend Micro, you may find the following works perfectly fine:  Click Start - All Programs -Trend Micro Titanium (version) - Trend Micro Diagnostic Toolkit. 

Please Note: You may have to perform this process in Windows Safe Mode using a User Account with Administrator privileges.
