Can't get rid of Trend Micro OfficeScan Client!

This may seem as a minor problem, but... it's quite annoying, not to mention that it takes up a lot of resources.
I want to uninstall Trend Micro Office Scan for a number of reasons:
1) I use AVG instead since it's free and it seems to do an equally good job;
2) it's outdated and completely useless since they want money for updates, basically it's nothing but a extra burden on my windows;
3) it's annoyingly commercial.

My prolem is that it won't uninstall, and I tried all tricks I could think of.
The darn thing is asking for a password, and then refers me to "the administrator for details". Well, excuse me, but I AM the administrator (sort of), since I'm the only person who uses my own, private laptop!
It's very frustrating...

Please help, any suggestions will be appreciated!
