I have been using Trend Micro OfficeScan for almost a month now. After having most of the softwares were blocked, I am planning to uninstall the Trend Micro Office. The problem was I forgot the password I set.
How can I get out of rid or bypass when the system prompted for the password so I can proceed the un-installation of Trend Micro Office?

Forgot the password won't give you a reason to give up, because there's some tips about how to uninstall your TrendMicro Officescan. Browse Explorer to find Ofcscan.ini. Usually it's located in C:Windows, or C:WINNT directory, or in C:Program Files folder.
Use editor to open the Ofcscan.ini, then search for the line [INI_CLIENT_SECTION]. Make "Uninstall_Pwd=" inactive by adding # in front of the line, i.e. #Uninstall_Pwd=
Type new line below it: Uninstall_Pwd=70. And then save it.
Try uninstall Trend Micro again. When prompted to enter a password enter 1.
