I want to uninstall webroot and start over. I'm unable to remove aei.exe and other files. How can I accomplish this?


You may need to reinstall it to fully uninstall it. The uninstall may not have worked.
Have you turned off your computer since uninstalling Webroot? (Fully turned off, not hibernation mode) That may get rid of the running file.
To finish the job after uninstalling, simply delete the directory from the C: drive. (You may have to turn off and restart the computer before it will allow you to delete the folder.) A lot of programs that download updates on a regular basis will leave the updates on your hard drive even after an uninstall.

Open your control panel and check if every program associated with AVG is been uninstalled on your computer? you can also open your firewall settings and for a minute try to disable it, just to know if the firewall is miss-configured which might block your programs from from starting. also make sure you are log on as Administrator
Let me know if this solutions works for you.

Remove ask for genuine softwear


follow the following steps:

  1. Launch Windows Task Manager.
  2. End wgatray.exe process in Task Manager.
  3. Restart Windows XP in Safe Mode.
  4. Delete WgaTray.exe from C:\Windows\System32.
  5. Delete WgaTray.exe from C:\Windows\System32\dllcache.
  6. Launch RegEdit.
  7. Browse to the following location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify
  8. Delete the folder WgaLogon and all its contents
  9. Reboot Windows XP.
But the latest version of the WGN tool is a little tricky to handle. It will pop up again as soon as you end it from the task manager and while it is running in the memory, you can't delete it too.
Here is how I did it :
  • Ignore Step #2 of ending wgatray.exe before restarting to Safe Mode as it serves no purpose.
  • At Step #4, wait on the deletion confirmation dialog box and then open task manager to end wgatray.exe
  • When you are again prompted for a confirmation for terminating the process, align that confirmation box over the delete confirmation box.
  • Press Yes on the Task Manager prompt and then quickly press Yes on the deletion confirmation. (You need to repeat this if you miss it)
  • If you did it quickly then you will be able to delete the file.
  • Step #5 can be missed. I was able to do it without the Step #5.
  • Complete Step 6 to 9 as instructed.
After you have followed all the above instructions, then
  • Go to Control Panel > Security Center > Automatic Update Settings.
  • Select the third option "Notify me but don't automatically download or install them".
  • Click Ok.
  • Now when Windows Updates icon will appear in the system tray (it will take some time), click on the icon and it will display a list of available updates.
  • This time unselect the checkbox of Windows Genuine Advantage Notification Tool, and click on Download.

  • Select "Don't notify my about these updates again" so it will ignored every time updates are downloaded.
  • From the next time, make sure to check the list of download so that you might not install any new version of this tool.

My home laptop has been infected with Security Tool. Any advice?


Security tool trojan will alter your .exe files and in the end you will not be able to access/run any .exe file.
AVG ver. 8.5 does not detect it either.
Manual removal:

Search in /Document and Settings for "ave.exe" and "av.exe": delete all entries found. If you cant delete them go into Task Manager and end the process called ave or av then retry to delete.

Search in C:\Windows for "ave*.pf" and "av*.pf" -> delete the entries.

In Notepad paste:

[Version]
Signature="$Chicago$"
Provider=atropine

[DefaultInstall]
DelReg=regsec
AddReg=regsec1

[regsec]
HKCU, Software\Classes\.exe
HKCU, Software\Classes\secfile
HKCR, secfile
HKCR, .exe\shell\open\command

[regsec1]
HKCR, exefile\shell\open\command,,,"""%1"" %*"
HKCR, .exe,,,"exefile"
HKCR, .exe,"Content Type",,"application/x-msdownload"

Save this with the .inf (instead of the default .txt) extension on your desktop. Right click on the file and choose Install
Reboot.

I want to uninstall spy sweeper but I can't. I get a runtime error. How can I uninstall?


Hi Friend,

Close the SpySweeper Program
  • If SpySweeper isn't closed properly, it may not uninstall completely. Click the SpySweeper icon on the Windows toolbar, then choose the "Exit" command to close it. Hold down the "Control," "Alt" and "Delete" keys at the same time to open the Task Manager. Select "Processes" and look for a process called "spysweeper.exe." If you find it, choose it and then click "End Process." Next, look for a process called "WRSSSDK.exe" and follow the same procedure to close it if you find it.

  • Uninstall SpySweeper
  • Go to the Windows "Start" menu from the toolbar, then choose "Control Panel." Locate the "Add/Remove Program" option and choose it. Once the list of available programs is populated, find and select SpySweeper. Click "Uninstall" and let Windows complete the uninstall process. You will get a message when it is done.

  • Test the Computer
  • Reboot your computer, and once it has restarted, look for the SpySweeper icon on the toolbar. If it is absent, hold down "Control," "Alt" and "Delete" to open the Task Manager. Under "Processes," look for "spysweeper.exe" and "WRSSSDK.exe." If the uninstall was successful, you will not find them. If they are running, end them and go through the uninstall process again

    My task manager has been disabled due to virus attack. help me


    There is a registry hack to enable or disable Windows NT TaskManager. The same registry hack applies to Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
    Name: DisableTaskMgr
    Type: REG_DWORD
    Value: 1=Enablethis key, that is DISABLE TaskManager
    Value: 0=Disablethis key, that is Don't Disable, Enable TaskManager

    As part of the enhanced management available in Windows 2000 and Windows XP, rather than risking a registry change, as an administrator you can enable or disable Windows 2000 Pro or Windows XP Pro's TaskManager using Group Policy Editor. This can be applied to the local policy. Note: if you are trying to override your organizations group policy, you can't. As soon as you re-authenticate to the domain, the domain or OU Group Policy will rewrite the registry setting. But if the TaskManager was accidently disabled or you need to control this item for a set of standalone boxes this is for you:
    • Click Start
    • Click Run
    • Enter gpedit.msc in the Open box and click OK
    • In the Group Policy settings window
      • Select User Configuration
      • Select Administrative Templates
      • Select System
      • Select Ctrl+Alt+Delete options
      • Select Remove Task Manager
      • Double-click the Remove Task Manager option
    And as I mentioned above, since the policy is Remove Task Manager, by disabling the policy, you are enabling the Task Manager.
