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)?

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.
