ForceField Uninstaller Did Not Work
I tried the ForceField Trial Version and uninstalled it after a few days. Prior to installing the trial version, I had run many beta versions but I uninstalled the last beta version before I installed the final ForceField trial version. I found 6 ForceField files in my Zone Alarm Pro\Program Control\Program list and I removed them. However, the Zone Alarm ForceField programs keep coming back. The programs are in C:\Program Files\CheckPoint\ZAForceField\*.*. Windows Explorer and PowerDesk do not show this directory so it must be hidden and protected. A search for ForceField on C:\ does not find any files or folders. A registry search for ForceField also comes up blank. Yet ForceField is in my computer and I suspect it is affecting browser speed. I want all ForceField folders, files, and registry entries removed. How can I do this?
OS: Windows XP Pro SP3

Re: ForceField Uninstaller Did Not Work
I also used the ForceField beta last year and used to find it hungry for resources. the current version has fixed all that though. Didn't had a problem removing though. (Probably going to remove the current version too, but that's another story.)
Anyhow, I would remove all that you can, manually, then use Registry Mechanic by PC Tools to get rid of the rest, which it will if the main *.exe and *.dll files are non-existent.
That's safer than invading the registry and trying to remove a lot of individual references; which can be quite damaging if you're unsure of what you are doing.
Another program I used to use which was quite good was EasyCleaner by ToniArts, problem was that unless you watched it closely it liked to remove the Help and Support files too!
