    Question Remove Securus

    Is there a way of removing Securus?

    We sold some old computers and want to tell the new owners how to remove the program.

    Thanks.

    I would have thought you would have wiped them before they left site....

    Anyway just remove it from add and remove programs.

    You can't do that.

    Send me a PM and I'll send you over the instructions rather than post them publicly for any lurking kids to see. ;-)

    Shouldn't work. There's a mechanism in there to stop you doing it that way. Maybe you was just lucky. :-)

    MSCONFIG, untick Securus from Startup. Reboot. Uninstall as normal.
