Windows 7: Cannot remove Trend Micro

Cannot remove Trend Micro

Probably not the right place but I know there are the best folks in here so...........

Have a Toshiba A200 laptop running Vista SP2 32bit with a Core duo 2.0Ghz 2Gb RAM (DDR2 667Mhz) and an 80GB HDD.

Now the friend wanted me to get the email put right but on stating this machine I found it incredibly slow ie waiting for a Google page for a minute! I have replaced the RAM to 2GB (originally1GB) and removed a lot of Apple software her kids had on it and am working through Shawn's speed up tut. Plus downloaded SP1 and so many Windows updates it isn't funny any more.

Now the machine is running at a reasonable / acceptable rate.

However try as I may I cannot get rid of the Trend Micro I have got it out of Programs and Features, done a Revo and even in desperation tried deleting the regedit for it but that will not respond. I know it is still there because it pops up a renewal notice on every boot

I have Comodo free and MBAM set up for her a she tells me she hasn't renewed the Tend for two years and has just been running "blind" but I feel that getting rid of that wretched Trend will make a lot of difference to the boot.

So can anyone please help me as I don't now quite what to do
