How do i uninstall knctr


Quickly and completely remove Knctr from your computer by downloading "Should I Remove It?", its 100% FREE
http://www.shouldiremoveit.com/download.aspx
This will remove Knctr from your computer.


Or, you can uninstall Knctr from your computer by using the Add/Remove Program feature in the Window's Control Panel.

  1. On the Start menu (for Windows 8, right-click the screen's bottom-left corner), click Control Panel, and then, underPrograms, do one of the following:
    • Windows Vista/7/8: Click Uninstall a Program.
    • Windows XP: Click Add or Remove Programs.
  2. When you find the program Knctr, click it, and then do one of the following:
    • Windows Vista/7/8: Click Uninstall.
    • Windows XP: Click the Remove or Change/Remove tab (to the right of the program).
  3. Follow the prompts. A progress bar shows you how long it will take to remove Knctr.
  4. If for some reason uninstallation fails, please install Microsoft's uninstall fixer utility which will help fix problems with programs that can't be uninstalled at support.microsoft.com.

Hopefully it works and solve your problem. Please rate, thank you. Sharing is caring. :)

My computer just started misbehaving this evening; 1. Task manager just got disabled without me disabling it. I tried enabling it through 'run', but i got another error message saying registry...


Yes the probable cause of this was a missed behaved anti virus program. Formating your computer and installing a new operating system would work, but there is still one option to perform.Why not try to repair your xp installation instead . If you run your xp operating system setup disk, At first you will be prompted to repair or install a new operating system, then press enter to install a new os. After pressing f8 it will search for a recent xp installation . select repair and leave the current file system intact no changes. But if you really want to change your operating system XP to Win7, yes it will work with your computer, but the softwares and programs that you'll need will also have to be compatible with win7. The most important thing here is your computers drivers installation. If you have your computer drivers installation cd, you could proceed. Have a nice day .

Fix it 10 software removal


Buy the program again install and un-install?
That is with out a doubt the most asinine thing I have ever heard. Ignore him and try booting into Safe mode then run the add /remove program. The software is simply loading with the system files and once activated is difficult to remove while the Fix-it files are running. Many spyware and Virus programs do the exact same thing.
Running in safe mode loads just the bare essential files Windows needs to run. All others are skipped..

If this fails, try downloading and installing Revo link here.
It will ask to search the registry for stray entries left behind. Let it do this, but be careful deleting the registry entries. Be sure it is a stray from the Fix-it utilities. You can usually tell by checking the entry displayed.

Revo is a powerful clean up tool.
It will TRY to use the programs un-installer first.
"Most installations set up a "un-installer" file.
If Revo does not find one, It will automatically go to the next phase and do it's best to locate all the bits and pieces and purge them.

Good luck!
Hope this helps!

How do I stop webroot from running to uninstall? The virus protection isn't running and I want to reinstall. I am running Windows XP


If available, it is highly recommended that software be uninstalled through this option of Windows. To view a list of currently installed programs in your computer click Start, Settings, Control Panel, and double-click Add/Remove Programs. Within Add/Remove programs click the "Install/Uninstall" tab or click the "Change or Remove Programs" button.

I have Norton 360 V.2. Last night I downloaded


Boot up the PC in safe mode. How? Well when you start the PC press F8 before the windows start loading. A menu will open up. On top or there so you will find safe mode. Select it and boot. On booting in safe mode you will be warned that your PC is running in safe mode. Done? Now start control panel and then Add Remove Programs. Once that window is populated with all the progs that are installed on your PC, select Norton V3 and uninstall it. Uninstall V2 as well. Restart the PC in normal mode. Now install V3 and compute happily.

Webroot problems


I just went through this this afternoon, I spent 8 hours removing and updating and loading McAfee and running it too.

Webroot is a bad program, it is hard to remove and some of the componets just cannot be removed unless you do a search for the file and then delete it....if you need a certain dll then the anti-virus should detect that and remove or quarantine it.

I would suggest that you remove Webroot, and install another anti-virus program...I swear by McAfee, it removed over 30 problems or quarantined them, it works and is well worth the money spent....If you have Comcast, it is FREE to download on all of your computers in your home....just part of the internet service.

PS...Uniblue registry booster is no good, and another one that is hard to remove...it has spyware too.

AVG wont work nor will my laptop


Looks like a certain toolbar feature was included with the AVG that wants to keep starting. Go to Start button, then Control Panel. In the control panel, click Classic View on the left, open up Internet Options and click the Programs Tab on the top of the Internet Options Box that opens up.

Then click the Manage Add-Ons button. Beside the word "Show:", check under each option from the dropdown menu (Add-ons that have been used, Add-ons currently loaded, etc) and in the box below the Show menu, left click to highlight anything that says AVG, then click the round button near the botton to Disable that add-on.

Also check your Control Panel > Programs And Features for anything that mentions an AVG Toolbar as it was possibly separately installed and has it's own Uninstall Listing in the Programs and Features.

If those don't help, you can try this:

You can try to download and install the Microsoft Installer Cleanup Utility. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

Download and install the Cleanup Utility, then start the program from your Programs list.

***Be careful with this tool...you do not want to remove the wrong things or use the Remove All button, or no/most programs will not work anymore***

After you start the program, browse down the list and anything you see listed with AVG, left click to highlight the item then click the Remove Selected button at the bottom.

Hopefully this removes any traces of the installed AVG.

Webroot Spyware Question


Hi kn21_83

Your SpySweeper program functions by viewing incoming programs requesting access to your computer, referencing them to a built-in definitions file that updates regularly, and granting permission or red-flagging potential spyware programs. So, the definitions file is very important for the program to work properly.

I recently had a customer's computer display the same error message, and the way I was able to work-around it and make the SpySweeper program work properly was to uninstall it completely, ensure that there are no other anti-virus programs that might interfere with SpySweeper's install (if you have norton for example, manualy disable it for the duration of the install), and download the most current version from the internet rather than your disks that came with it.

Now, there could be other things involved, such as a malicious program interfering with how SpySweeper functions. In that scenario, restoring your OS is usually the fastest method of restoring functionality to your machine. Hopefully it is not a virus infection, but if you run out of ideas to resolve the issue a restore is a simple fix that guarantees success.
