Hello Everyone: I am using xp home edition sp2
Awhile back I had to Uninstall Outpost firewall. But I notice it is still on my Administrative Services List! I started the pc in safe mode and tried to delete it, but there was no option for doing this, How do I remove it from there? Thanks, Tom

    Expert4xp:  Thanks, But I used these instructions to uninstall outpost a couple of months ago, but the Outpost Service is still in the administrative services as Disabled! I want to get rid of it there because I no longer use Outpost.
