Unable to delete Talk Talk Online Security

  Scubaman 21:27 23 Jul 2007

Hi folks, I have just been given a computer and I am deleting unwanted programs using the Add Remove facility. I have one left to get rid of and it is Talk Talk Online Security. I am unable to delete it using this method. Is there another way to get rid of it, short of a format?

Try removal in safe mode (disconnect from 'net).Hit F8 repeatedly during bootup.
Or download it again (click `Try it free for 90 days` click here )

then install and uninstall

Tried to uninstall in safe mode but still no joy. When you say to try it again, I am trying to get rid of it.

Is it listed from Start>Programs?

If so there is possibly an Uninstall facility listed.

In addition, this is the TalkTalk support page about Online Security, which has to be removed if no longer wishing to subscribe:

Hi Also look in all programs they maybe a uninstall option there under talktalk security?

If not try,

click/ run
type in the box services.msc
click OK

then see if talktalk security is running if yes STOP the service,

Then try to remove talktalk again,

Hi I seem to have the same problem as Scubaman ie. cannot remove Talk Talk Online Security within add/remove programs. T have downloaded Ccleaner and PC Registry cleaner but it still won't remove the programme. Help!

IIRC you have to do it via the TT My Account?Help and Support.
