So looks like you will have to do a Manual uninstall, Go to Search type Talk Talk Try deleting the Security from there if you only want to remove that. If you want Talk Talk of your comp delete all that it finds. if it say's cannot Delete Try emptying the folder to the last bit that are left then try removing folder. the other part is ether use CCleaner or you have to go into Registry to remove it if that's the way you want to go come back hear not my e-mail please so others can learn

Hi Woodchip
Have conducted search but it wouldn't let me delete. How do I get into Registry?

Hi Woodchip
When using Ccleaner in the Registry window it suggests deleting the reistry key as a solution. How do i do this?
I spent over an hour on the phone to Talk Talk technical support earlier and they tried lots of different ways of uninstalling but all were unsuccessful. Eventually she gave me a Microsoft Tech support no. in the hope that they would take me into the computers registry and remove F-Secure that way.

Just got back, As I have been out. Go to run type regedit, then go to Menu, under edit you will see find, press find and click on the Computer icon at the top of the list so when it startes looking it's going to start from the top in find, type Talk Talk press enter delete any Talk talk you find if it lets you, press F3 to go to next entry in Regedit, you have to do this untill you get to the End. Do not try removing anything else or windows may not boot. you can then reboot and after reboot try deleting Talk talk from Windows
