That we have a trojan


If you have a trojan or any kind of virus, you will require either a knowledge of how to clean registries, as well as files out of your computer.

Or you will require software to cleanup. If you don't have software, I would say use Malware bytes, Spybot Search and Destroy, and to cleanup after a virus scan I would suggest CCleaner for a registry cleaning and file cleanup.

I hope this helps.

I am tryign to uninstall fix it, get error 5006


Installation or uninstallation of an application or game fails and gives the following error code:

This issue is due to a previous installation not finishing properly



Solution 1. Rename the Installshield folder

Make sure you've enabled Show hidden files and folders.

Find and rename the Installshield folder:

Windows 32-bit: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Installshield

Windows 64-bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Installshield

If there is an Installshield file in the Common Files folder, rename that one also (e.g. to Installshield_OLD).



Solution 2. Remove all traces of previous uninstall

If renaming the Installshield folder had no effect, find and delete any traces of uninstalled applications.

Applications that can assist you are: Revo Uninstaller, Windows Installer Cleanup Utility , CCleaner.

Alternatively, do a manual clean-up:

Close all running programs. Then clear the Temp folder (found via input of %temp% in Start > Search or Start > Run).

Use the Windows registry editor to delete registry entries related to the program.

Restart the computer.


hope this helps

My search has reviled a couple of things.
First, is your video cards chip-set supported?
If so, are the latest drivers installed?
Is Direct X up to date?
You may have corrupt or missing or data in the Windows registry.
Try the windows Installer cleanup utility. After that use a registry cleaner
