I found an easy fix for this at http://www.spyware-techie.com/antivirus-2008-or-antivirus2008-removal-guide/. It tells you about Antivirus 2008 running scans with fake results and how to use smitfraudfix to remove it completely. Smitfraudfix has a way of removing all files that are related to antivirus 2008 so they do not boot up next time you start your pc. You have to remove the files in safe mode with smitfraudfix.

Hi,

You can use the Nortan removal tool available from the Symantec :

ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/removal_tools/Norton_Removal_Tool.exe

Download & remove the norton 2007.

This tool can be used to remove all versions of Norton.

First you should shut down all the services of Norton before trying to remove it.

Restart the system.

Now you are good to go.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

Use Revo Uninstaller. It will work like the Add/remove programs however it will forcefully remove the programs and also will let you remove its registry items of the Omnipage.

How to completely uninstall a software


How to remove leftover files,folders and registry keys after uninstalling a software:
OK, first lets see what actually happens when we install a software?
When we install a software it copies some of its files usually in C:\Program Files , C:\Windows\System32 , Registry.
If we uninstall a Software from Add/Remove Program ( Win+R --> appwiz.cpl), it removes some files from C:\program Files only.
It will not remove the softwares supporting files and folders from System32 or Registry.
Now lets see how to remove these leftover files:
I use a small freeware utility called Revounistaller for this process.
What is Revounistaller ?
Revo Uninstaller helps you to uninstall and remove unwanted programs installed on your computer even if you have problems uninstalling and cannot uninstall them from "Windows Add or Remove Programs" control panel applet. Revo Uninstaller is a much faster and more powerful alternative to "Windows Add or Remove Programs" applet! With its advanced and fast algorithm, Revo Uninstaller analyzes an application's data before uninstall and scans after you uninstall an application. After the program's regular uninstaller runs, you can remove additional unnecessary files, folders and registry keys that are usually left over on your computer. Even if you have a broken installation, Revo Uninstaller scans for an application's data on your hard disk drives and in the Windows registry and shows all found files, folders and registry keys so you can delete them.
With its unique "Hunter mode", Revo Uninstaller offers you some simple, easy to use, but effective and powerful approaches to manage (uninstall, stop, delete, disable from auto starting) and to get information about your installed and/or running programs.

How do you uninstall a program from a palm treo 750?


You need activesync
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/downloads/microsoft/activesync-download.mspx

ActiveSync’s Tools >Add/Remove Programs screen lists all the programs that have been installed on your device. To uninstall a program, uncheck the box next to it and click on OK. To reinstall a program, click on the empty box next to it and click on OK. Do not click on the Remove button. Here's how to do it: If you used ActiveSync to install a third-party program to your Windows Mobile device, you can uninstall the program quickly from your PC.
  1. Make sure your Windows Mobile device is connected to your PC and ActiveSync is running.
  2. From the PC’s ActiveSync Window, click on Tools >Add/Remove Programs. This opens the “Add/Remove Programs” dialog box, which displays a list of third-party programs you have installed on your device.
  3. To uninstall any of the checked programs, click on the box to uncheck it and hit OK—ActiveSync will do the rest.

Reinstalling programs you’ve uninstalled Once you’ve installed a program using ActiveSync, the necessary installation files are saved on your PC. If you uninstall the program as described above, you can use the Add/Remove Programs menu to reinstall it at a later time. Uninstalled programs appear in the Add/Remove Programs list as items with unchecked boxes. To reinstall it, click on the check box next to it and hit OK. ActiveSync will reinstall the program automatically. Note that files in CAB format can be downloaded directly to a device and installed, so they will not appear in the Add/Remove Programs list. In addition, some freeware programs are installed by using ActiveSync’s Explorer to copy the program file to your device. Those also do not appear in the Add/Remove list. WARNING: Do not click on the “Remove” button at the bottom of the Add/Remove Programs screen unless you never again plan on using the program. This completely removes the necessary installation files from your PC and you won’t be able to reinstall the program by checking the box.

I'm trying to remove the creatacard program off my computer and I cant do it I've tried to go to the add and remove programs and it wont let me do it please help


If you know the path where it wa sinstalled go to the folder and just delete the folder where it was installed. Most programs are Installed into a folder in C:/Program Files
Look there and find the folder you want and delete it. Even if the program still shows up in the "add or remove" menu, it is actually deleted and wont take up anymore space on your hardrive.

Antivirus2008


Hi chief1ang,

Please do not install or open this program. It is a malware. I have dealt with this malware a few times already at work and it's nothing but a pain in the u know what. On 2 different occassions on 2 different pc's I had to scrub the hard drive, image, and re-install proprietary programs. Before I this I tried to scanning it with our corporate anti-virus program and it would detect the virus and says it removes it but when I re-scan it the same virus continously shows up. I did a search on the web and discovered that this virus hit alot of people and companies.

Please do not install it.

Unable to install a new powerdvd version


I imagine that it's trying to uninstall the older version to install the newer one, which it can't. NOTE: This is a desperate step. Delete the Cyberlink folder in C:\Program Files\; Go to Add/Remove Programs and attempt uninstall - it will say it can't uninstall, and ask you if oyu want to remove it from the program list. Click yes. Go to start->Search (or Find) and search for Cyberlink (make sure that Hidden and System files are being searched). Delete all Cyberlink files. Do the same, but with PowerDVD. Download and run CCleaner. Attempt to reinstall PowerDVD.
