How do you mean, it gets in your way? What does?

Are you the Administrator of this computer? If not, then ask the Administrator to remove it from Add/Remove programs in his account.

Have a look at this MajorGeeks forum discussion about a similar problem;
There are 2 pages, and I would suggest you read the whole lot first, before trying anything from the start of the thread again.

Let us know how you get on.

Using XP: I have studied the long and helpful replies on this subject in Majorgeeks. My problem is that Omnipass does not appear in my (Add/Remove) list of programs, nor does it appear in Perfect Uninstall lists. I suspect I never completely installed it, but it's always there in the Task Bar, and seems to slow down my access to Firefox &c
(I am the sole user of this Packard Bell desktop computer from new.)

Uninstalling Omnipass

With Windows XP, as Administrator and sole user, I have at last discovered that Omnipass is listed in Control Panel. But it is not listed among programs, or in Add/remove programs. PerfectUninstall will list it, but will uninstall it only if I register--for 39 dollars!
Perhaps it's not doing as much harm as I suspected--not 39 dollars' worth! UninstallGold might do the same, but the seller is regarded as of unproved trustworthiness! One feels like a shorn lamb.

Perfect uninstaller finally did the job

No other method worked, but when I downloaded a (free) trail version of Perfect uninstaller, it listed Omnipass among programs, and removed it. I was happy to make a donation, though I don't expect to need it again.

I contacted softex omnipass through the softexinc. website and they responded within 12 hours.
They provided the following link:

Use this address to download the opunst32.exe unistall program
Run the program and then reboot your computer.

You will now be able to delete the softex folder. They said it would be in c:\program files but on my computer it was in c:\apps

An inactive softex icon might still remain in the control panel. I found advice on how to remove an invalid icon from the control panel through google ( It was very simple.
