I tried removing Netextender VPN software from my Vista computer, but I can't find Netextender listed in Control Panel >> Progams and Features, neither is the program listed in the Start >> All Programs menu. Netextender program icon shows on my system tray.

Hi bobox00,

Try removing Netextender VPN software with Revo Uninstaller. Here's the link: http://www.revouninstaller.com/

Have you tried to select "Uninstall on browser exit" from the taskbar icon (right-click, or left-click, that may depend)?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Revo uninstaller completed the installation (I used the slowest and most effective mode), then I rebooted. Sadly, the program icon is still in my system tray and I still can't install a new version of the program - I get an error message saying that there is another version on my computer and I need to unistall that first. Thanks for your help though.

torimar I had tried that, but that option was greyed-out.

Do you have this on CD? Did you install this with a CD? If you did or still have the CD, I would try to reinstall it, and then try to uninstall it again.

Did you try to uninstall the program in Safe Mode?

Is/was your computer part of a corporate network or domain?
Then netextender could have been deployed by the sysadmin, and changes/updates could be prohibited on a policy basis. In this case, contacting your sysadmin is the way to go.

Another thing you might want to try is Uruninstaller: http://www.ursoftware.com
It is a commercial product, but has free evaluation, and for your purpose of uninstalling just one product the evaluation version should be fine.
