Why use Trend Micro Uninstaller tool?

Most users prefer using the default Add Remove Programs available in Windows 10, but this type of uninstall process only removes files from the install folder of that program and some files from its system folder. Many files in the system folder remain unchanged, which can create conflicts in the future.

For a more thorough uninstall, some users prefer the command line process, where they try to uninstall Trend Micro AV by using ‘msiexec.exe’ file. In this removal process, not all the entries of the software are removed and some registry entries remain.

Furthermore, in both these processes you can’t uninstall Trend Micro AV which is password protected. Without a password you will get an invalid password error or the uninstall process will simply fail to complete. Therefore, the only way out is a highly complicated process to bypass the default password and uninstall using the Trend Micro AV Management Console. For this process, you will have to create a script with a password bypass option, which will ignore the password protection.

As you can see all the simple methods of uninstallation give unsatisfactory results and the method that works is highly complicated. Therefore, using Trend Micro removal tools is the best way forward as they are easy to operate and deliver desired results.

Proper uninstallation matters

Some may argue that improper uninstallation is not a big issue. This is completely wrong as the left-over files or registry entries of Trend Micro AV can cause conflicts with the files or settings of the antivirus which you will install later. These conflicts can cause fatal errors in the working of your computer.

Errors that can occur due to improper uninstallation of Trend Micro AV can have wide ranging effects. It can lead to the freezing of computer applications, you may think your applications are not working, but in reality, your computer would have slowed down. Internet connectivity can also get adversely affected and installing other programs can cause errors.

Difference between Diagnostic tool and Uninstall Tool

As the name suggests, the Trend Micro Uninstaller Tool is specifically designed for uninstalling Trend Micro programs and can’t be used for anything else. However, the Trend Micro Diagnostic Tool can be used for other purposes like debugging a Trend Micro application, it also allows you to monitor threats and to create an exception list.

It doesn’t matter which tool you will use for removing Trend Micro AV you can be assured that all the files and entries created by the Trend Micro AV will be completely deleted during the uninstall process.

You will be surprised to know that every application that you uninstall by using default uninstallers of your operating system tends to leave some of its traces on your computer, which may cause problems in the future. For most applications this is not a big problem, but for some programs, like antivirus programs, it can be a major issue. Therefore, for Trend Micro Antivirus you must use Trend Micro Uninstaller Tool kit for its complete removal from your computer.
