Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Antivirus system Pro, removal, how to.

It is best if you perform the following steps when your computer is operating in safe mode. You can select safe mode by pressing the F8 or F10 key just before the operating system is about to start. Once in safe mode open up the Task Manager, head over to the processes tab and end any of the following processes if you see them listed:
antivirussystempro.exe
uninstall.exe
antivirsystempro.exe
sysguard.exe

You can also use rkill, which is a fantastic little utility that can detect and terminate a number of malware processes automatically.
Next up its time to delete files that Antivirus System Pro created when it made a home on your computer. Keep in mind that some of these files may be locked by the application and may not be possible to simply delete them. You can use Unlocker to remove such files or folders. Also you might need to run the command “regsvr32 /u iehelper.dll” before you can delete that file.

Documents and SettingsXXXXsysguard.exe
Finally, you need to dive in deep and delete some values from the registry. To do so, open up the run dialog box by pressing the key combination Win + R and then type in regedit. This will open the registry editor.
You will see HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, HKEY_CURRENT_USER, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, HKEY_USERS listed in the left side pane. These are the trees which contain values created by various software and the operating system to run properly. Antivirus System Pro also makes certain entries to the registry, which should be deleted for complete removal. The entries are listed below:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREAntivirus System PRO
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUninstallAntivirus System PRO
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun “Antivirus System PRO”

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerBrowser Helper Objects{BAD4551D-9B24-42cb-9BCD-818CA2DA7B63}

Ok, this should have gotten rid of that horrid virus.
