here in your thread and it made my post a single post outside of this thread.

In the Add/Remove -- look and see if it shows Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall.

That's what mine shows.

Hope this helps.

I have found one thing though Julea
by roddy32 / March 2, 2006 8:31 AM PST

once you submit a post, even if you get a "page not found" OR the post disappears, eventually it WILL show back up so posting again WILL create a double eventually so I would just post once so we don't have to delete the double. It's gotten bad enough where I stopped posting news and the virus alerts will be next. I WILL keep posting the updates though as long as I am able. Supposedly they ARE working on this LOL.

I already tried kerio for info on removing before posting,but to no avail.

I tried the castle cop link,but to no avail.

It is odd that it is not in add/remove or an uninstall option

I found this,but was hoping as a last resort,what do you think

This should only be done if removing Kerio Personal Firewall through Add/Remove Programs is not possible.

1. click on the Start button and go to Search and then Files and Folders.
2. Search for fwdrv.sys and fwdrv.vxd
3. Delete both files if you find them.
4. Delete the Kerio\\PersonalFirewall4 folder. Typically this folder is found here: C:\\Program Files.
5. Click on the Start button and go to Run.
6. Type "regedit" without the quotation marks and click OK. This will launch Window's registry editor.
7. Navigate to this registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Kerio\\Personal Firewall 4.
8. Delete this key.
9. If you are using Windows 98/ME then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CURRENTCONTROLSET\\SERVICES\\VXD\\FWDRV.
10. Delete this key.
11. If you are using Windows 2000/XP then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CURRENTCONTROLSET001\\SERVICES\\FWDRV.
12. Delete this key.
13. Those are the only components you will need to remove.

Sounds ok if this is coming from an authorative source... little complicated for me but may be better than my suggestion. I am unfamiliar with nor have I ever used Kerio... so your judgement is as good as mine.

Good luck!

Tom, this may sound like a stupid suggestion
by roddy32 / March 2, 2006 7:10 AM PST
In reply to: Glenn

but try going through add/remove programs again and look EVERYWHERE, particularly in the "K"'s for Kerio which is where I assume that you are looking but also look under "P" for "Personal Firewall" and "S" for "Sunbelt". I would think that it HAS to be there somewhere unless something got deleted by mistake.

Sorry if somebody already suggested this, I didn't take the time to read all the threads.

In reply to: Roddy

I recently installed Kerio and am very pleased with it; but you can bet that I've printed off the thread of how to uninstall should the need ever arise -- just in case it disappears from my add/remove list.

Good luck Tom.

some kind of quirk with W2K. I have never used that. I went from W95 on one computer to W98SE on my next and XP on this one which will hopefully last long enough for Vista to be a stable release for me next one LOL.

Tom.. There are reasons ....
by Carol~ Moderator / March 2, 2006 9:56 AM PST
In reply to: Curcat

for entries to be missing in Add/Remove, frow what I've been reading. It has all to do with how Add/Remove functions, or doesn't, and nothing to do with Kerio itself. I believe you'd have to go hunting around in the registry to discern the difference. I gather this is not an option.

You say you are 100% sure it is not there. I'm presuming you've also looked at the very bottom of the list too. If it's not a glitch with Window's, my guess is it was never there in the first place, or you inadvertently removed it.

I believe someone suggested reinstalling it, and then ''uninstalling''. Have you tried that? (I'd like to read through this thread again to see who said what, but I'm afraid all I'll wind up seeing is..''Page not found''. Wink So forgive me, if I've made a ''duplicate'' suggestion.)

If you're not going to manually uninstall it, or try to re-install then un-install, I don't know how many options you have left. There very well may be many more, but since I'm not an ''all knowing'' computer wiz, you won't find those options coming from me. GrinSad

Good luck with it..

I must have missed something; why did you want to uninstall Kerio in the first place?

To put it simply,not happy with it.

The icon in the task bar would be there,then not there on next boot up,I don't have a lot of experience with computers.I was not raised with computers,this is a new world to me,even these forums.I started using computers about 1 1/2 years ago and never knew these forums even excisted.I find computers quite exasperating.

So if something keeps bothering me it has to go LOL

I hope ZA de-bugged their latest version. I had used it happily for over 5 years when they started playing games with it.

I have been happy with Kerio to date (only a few weeks under my belt) but that's why they make Ford and Chevy. Good luck with it.

Hi Tom -- I smiled when reading your post about being exasperated and being new to computers.

I was right where you are about 5 years ago. Thanks to cnet, I learned how to use my PC and to keep it spot free (thus far anyway).

When working, I did desktop publishing and word processing; however, after quitting when hubby retired, I wanted to know what makes the computer tick and why it did what it did when.

I started coming to this forum and read lots before ever asking any questions. Thanks to the moderators and members here, I got where I am today. I find now there is no dumb question -- what's dumb is when the question is not asked. Now I'm involved in helping teach computer classes for our local computer club and helping friends and club members keep their PC's up to snuff.

Keep at it, you'll like it.

Julea

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
