Hello Experts,

Can you advice if you know anyway that I can retrieve or reset the password of Trend Micro OfficeScan Version 8.0? The reason being is that the one who installed the software is no longer connected on the company where this anti-virus is installed and when we take over and try to uninstall the thing, we cannot proceed because it is password protected. Any tips on how to uninstall officescan with this regard?
