    Default Panda Titanium Uninstall Problem

    A little over a month ago I downloaded and installed the Panda Titanium 30 day trial. It installed and has run fine. I have decided not to keep it and uninstalled it this morning. Immediately after I uninstalled it my network connection failed. I'm now getting an error message that I have limited or no connectivity to my network because an address was not assigned. I called my broadband cable ISP provider and they verified that there's nothing wrong with my connection. So the problem has to be on my PC. I suspect that the uninstall removed some important component from my PC! Has anyone else had this problem?? I tried to do a system restore back to yesterday, but this hasn't resolved the problem. It put Panda back on there but it won't run, says it's missing a file (can't remember the name). And I still can't connect to the internet.

    I'm running Windows XP. I found some things on the internet that I can try, but most of them require files that I have no way of getting from my work PC to my home PC (no floppy or CD/DVD writable drive).

    So are you saying that you have more than 1 PC connected (Networked) ?

    When you say "limited" means it will work part of the time ?

    Does the "sick" PC happen to be XP with SP2 installed ?

    This is/was a known problem experienced with the 2005 version but I thought it has been fixed.

    Try the usual .. go to Start menu > All Programs and see if the entry for Panda has a "uninstall Panda" option. If it doesn't work then you still have options.

    From Panda's own FAQs on how to uninstall the 2006 version ...

    http://www.pandasoftware.com/com/sup...oma=2&pagina=1

    If the Panda uninstaller doesn't work you can download and install an uninstaller program. I have never used either of them but these programs are said delete files and registry keys belonging to the program in question. There are two software programs used with great success by others. They are...

    TuneUp Utilities 2006... http://www.tune-up.com/ ... and

    Iolo's System Mechanic 5 or 6 ... http://www.iolo.com/sm/index.cfm.

    Each is a suite of system utilities which includes an uninstaller. Both offer a 30-day trial period. The programs are fully functional during the trial period and not crippleware. Both use wizards to guide you through the process of removing a program. They are, apparently, extremely easy to use and incredibly efficient.

    The fianl option is much harder. It requires you to go in to the registry and manually delete Panda's registry keys. If you are not comfortable with this then try the previous options.
