It actually is by way of normal UNINSTALL in Widows 10 but a password is needed and it is not one's own password but 1122
found this out eventually from telstra phone tech.
It's unusual to need an uninstall password for such things, but not as bad as Norton many years back when I had to do a factory reset of the hard disk just to remove the application. It's like tying you down with an umbilical cord unless you scream out.
So Telstra, why make us go through the hoops?
The problem with this password request is that, after selecting remove from the Add/ remove window, the Telstra Broadband Protect program asks for your Telstra Bigpond account and password,
see these instructs from the company site https://wontok.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/205144680-Uninstalling-Telstra-Broadband-Protect-Anti-V...
and after entering your login and password correctly it says they are incorrect!!
On the same site - NOT Telstra's FAQs, is a removal tool that works - see this link:
You can go through the 30 mins negotiations with several Telstra help people, to finally be given the random password to use 1122 - as was reported elsewhere in this forum.
If Telstra is going to promote a product to install, that doesn't uninstall in the usual way, then it would be very helpful if Telsta added a link to the removal tool to their help sections.
Use the remover tool. Telstra dont know anything about this tool until you get to someone high up int the tech support. https://wontok.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/212186186-Uninstalling-Telstra-Broadband-Protect-Anti-V...
