Find the program in your disk drive or in c drive in my computer. Open your disk and find programs then find this program that keeps installing itself and delete it. If it doesn't want to delete all at once start deleting it one icon at a time once you open this program. Thentry to delete the whole program. Sometimes these programs give up as you delete more and more of these icons . Be sure and don't delete anything but this one program. This is the folder all of your programs are installed in on your computer. Just delete the program you do not want. Then you should get rid of your problem.

Hello manx, Fortunately for you, your Dimension 4600 has windows xp on it, which has a feature to put you back in time, before the virus. Go to start, programs, accessories, system tools, system restore. Click - restore my computer to an earlier time. Click next, and then choose a date from the calendar, usually a few days before the virus appeared, and follow the prompts through, including restarting your computer to complete the restoration. Please let us know how it works for you, and if you need any additional assistance. Best regards, nightdiver

It may have put something into the registry so that it will always download and run on start up. You can try the following to get rid of it. 1) Open the registry editor. (To do this, go to Start -> Run and type: regedit ) 2) Browse to the following location HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run 3) Look at all the keys (items) in this folder. The program you are looking for may be listed here. If you find it, make note of where the file is located and delete the file that is mentioned in the key. Then delete the key. This will keep it form restarting after reboot.

See if you can get to safe mode. Write back to see if you can, and we will give you instructions on how to proceed from there.

Otherwise you will need a restore or winxp OS installation disk.

SOURCE: i have no sound on my dell optiplex gx280. it

My first thought is to check if the card has become lose from the slot. To check that you will need to open the case safely (make sure to wear an anti-static wrist strap or ground yourself any time you move). Unplug your computer from all of the external devices and power as well.

These directions assume your card is not screwed into the back of the case (in which case either the slot is not getting enough power or the card is bad).

Pull the sound card out and place it in the slot (or, preferably, another open slot of the same type). Push down evenly on the entire card (sometimes you'll need to press on the front and then the back of the card until it is fully seated).

Close the case and plug in your external devices (at least power, mouse, keyboard and speakers) and test if the device is found.

I'm also assuming you have a sound card and not on-board audio. If at some time a sound card was added and the on-board audio was disabled, you may be able to re-enable the on-board audio after removing the sound card drivers. If the reseating of the card doesn't work, I'd try a new sound card.

I hope this helps.

Norton anti virus


The best anti virus programme in my view is Norton Anti Virus. If Norton tells you a programme is a potential problem, it is.
You can download from Symantec the uninstall programme that will remove Norton.

Tying to install kaspersky anti virus programme.its coming up to remove norton anti virus which ive removed all norton programmes but its still saying remove norton virurs


If you did a reboot then it should be gone however; Norton is notorious for not removing all of its little registry stragglers after uninstall. They have a program that will go in and grab the remnants.

Please see

Enter the start menu, type "eType" in the search field. In the results list, you'll find the uninstall link under eType.

BTW, if the eType tagline disturbs you, you can remove it from the Settings/Advanced tab by unchecking: "Help keep eType free by sharing with your friends"

I cannot remove a programme from my taskbar cos it always comes up saying InstallSheild (R) Setup Launcher what does that mean? I need to get rid of these programmes cos they have viruses in them.


hi there, thanks for the fast reply. waht program is this? is this games or software program? the problem there is, the program that you are trying to uninstall doesnt have uninstall shield. uninstall shield are executable file that works when you are trying to uninstall a certain program. they act as triggers for you to uninstall the program.

I have two antivirus programs, avast and avira, I want to completely remove avira but whenever i click it, the CCPLG.XML: unable to find file (c:progra-1aviraantivi-1ccplg.xml). appears.. I also cant find...


I would suggest an uninstaller program like the Revo Uninstaller, which can be downloaded from www.download.com. This is good for removing the remains of a program that hasn't uninstalled properly.

See if it helps with your problem.
