How to disable Trend Micro Office Scan Password

In order to unload or uninstall the Trend Micro Office Scan suite you are required to enter a password. One of my friends’ old notebook still had it installed and as some might know the LAN connections are disabled until the office scan is loaded… This can be a very painful operation.


In order to remove it simply do that:

Browse to the c:\program files\XXX directory or simply search your system drive for the Ofcscan.ini

In this file uncomment the line Uninstall_Pwd= by putting a # in front of it

After the deselected line put Uninstall_Pwd=70 and try the removal again. The value 70 is the hash for an ordinary 1. So in order to uninstall the package simply use the password 1.


Microsoft’s IE 8 Beta 2 released

Today is the big day after a few days playing with beta 1 of Microsoft’s new Internet Explorer 8 I finally upgraded to beta 2 and have to say I am surprised! This new version was released today.

This is by far the fastest and best looking browser on the market at the moment. The extension support java, ActiveX… is far ahead of any other vendor.

The greatest new features are the new tabs and the webslices. The tabs run all as a separate process that means in case a tab locks up only this tab disappears and you can still use all the other open ones. The webslices allow you to open several dynamic websites in your own private main page.
