uninstall TrendMicro Messaging Suite Client without the password

I loathe the Trend Micro Messaging Suite. But I had an instance today where I had to uninstall the client version of the program from a laptop. The thing about this program is that it requires the Trend Micro administrator's password to uninstall it. This was put in place by someone else, so I didn't have it. I found this trick to having it not ask for the password:

Find HKLM\SOFTWARE\TrendMicro\PC-cillinNTCorp\CurrentVersion\Misc. and set "Allow Uninstall" = 1
