Hi

I had trouble with my computer, and uninstalled trend micro pc-cillin 2007. The problem is that now when I want to re install it, it says its already installed. I try to uninstall from add/remove but nothing happens, i cant find any files anywhere that have been left behind.

Any help on how to clean it up 100%? Thanks

I have tried using other software such as Ccleaner but nothing works and i am out of options

Thanks

have you checked the registry? there may be some references left that still think it is installed on your comp

start > run > regedit

then use view >> find and enter 'pc-cillin' and see if you get any matches
