    So how does one go about uninstalling this program? I’ve been checking Google, with no luck (the only results talk about uninstalling via an options menu, which does not seem to exist).

    Note, that I DO NOT need to unlock a folder, I want to UNINSTALL the program.

    I am a user of this Sonysoft Folder Lock software. But it does not work as mentioned. I was surprise when my folder icon turn into Control Panel’s icon instead of Folder Icon with Lock sign. Even more surprise when i tried to open my folder it does not ask for a password rather than it goes to control panel having correct address in address bar… n then i uninstall the program but the problem is the same…. any one cud suggest me to recover my files… I appreciate your kind suggestions..

    many thanks
