Cannot get rid of an unwanted program .

Cannot get rid of an unwnted program (antivirus2008XP) that showed up on my computer! It's a scan-only program, and "they" want money for the full program. I've tried majorgeeks. com (per your instructions) but I had no luck finding the download (s) recommended. Tried a couple that I thought might work......no luck. I'm really stuck. Help!

    What I finally did, to get rid of the problem, was (per your suggestion) was download the free antispyware software, Spyware Doctor. It finally got rid of the spyware. I had to go into settings to get rid of the warning on my desk top. You guys aimed me in the right direction to clear the problem. I now use the Spyware Doctor every time I fire up the computer, and just before I shut 'er down. So far, no more problems. Hey...Light the fires, & kick the tires! You guys were a big help................Thanks!

    Hi - thanks for the reply. Let's work something out. Can you tell me what all you have out there under the Startup tab in MSCONFIG? Thanks!

  • Venkat CV May 11, 2010

    Does this program show up on Add/Remove Programs? You can access this by using Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs.



    If you can't uninstall it from there, we could try and eliminate the program by doing a manual uninstall. To start off with, go to Start > Run. Type in MSCONFIG and hit Enter. Click the Startup tab. Can you let me know what all programs you see listed on the Startup tab? We'll discuss next steps from there.



    Thanks!

Here's manual antivirus xp 2008 removal
http://www.2-spyware.com/remove-antivirus-xp.html

If you are having problems with your desktop or getting the nasty message when you boot up follow the instructions below, but use the above link to remove the virus. YES THIS IS A VIRUS AND NOT A VIRUS REMOVAL TOOL!

First you need to stop the program from loading on startup. This is what you do to stop it:

Start, run

Type msconfig

Go to Startup tab
(if you've totally removed the antivirus program, you will not find these files and you can skip to the gpedit.msc step)

Uncheck lphc35dj0e1an
Uncheck rhc75dj0e1an

Click apply, then ok
Restart computer


Then you need to delete the main files this program uses. Delete the following file:

C:\windows\system32\lphc35dj0e1an.exe

Delete the following folder and all contents:

C:\program files\rhc75dj0e1an

This should remove the program from your system but you probably still have a warning message displayed as your wallpaper in Windows and the virus removed the ability to change the wallpaper or your desktop settings.

To restore ability to change your desktop settings and select a different wallpaper and screen saver do the following:

Start, run

type Gpedit.msc

Navigate to User configuration, Administrative Templates, Control Panel, Display

Right click on Remove Display in Control Panel
Click on Properties and select Disabled

Do the same steps to change the following attributes to disabled:

Hide Desktop Tab
Prevent changing wallpaper
Hide Apperance and Themes tab
Hide Settings tab
Hide Screen Saver tab

You should now be able to use your computer normally and change the wallpaper/screensaver to something other than the warning message Antivirus XP 2008 set it to.

    Now do i reset google as my web page


    You likely have malware on your PC which has hijacked your home page.
    • Download Malwarebytes (free), and have it scan your pc
    • Delete/quarantine anything it finds
    • Download SuperAntispyware (free), and have it scan your PC
    • Delete/quarantine anything it finds.

    To reset your home page:
    • Open the page you want as your home page in your Browser
    • Next, go to your browser settings (in google, its the "gear" on the Upper RH corner of your browser; in IE, also click on the "gear" and select "internet options)
    • In the section for setting home page, select "use Current" (the page you opened in the 1st step)
    • Hit OK
    If the home page you set (google) doesn't appear, you will need to have further Malware/virus removal work done.

Download and install Malwarebytes and Superantispyware (Note: If you can\'t do the download on your machine, do it on a friend\'s, put them on a thumb drive, and install them from it).

    Hi! i have a acer aspire one, everytime i switch my laptop on it pops up with a privacy center and i cant get rid of it?


    Privacy Center, or PrivacyCenter, is a rogue anti-spyware program designed to trick users into purchasing its full rogue version. Privacy Center looks similar to Privacy Components. Privacy Center may infect your computer through a Trojan, spam emails or it may have come bundled with another malicious program. Privacy Center sells itself as an effective spyware remover tool, however, all it does is make you believe you're infected with numerous spyware threats to offer its "licensed" program.

    Go to the link below and download and run MalwareBytes Anti-Malware program. When it installs it will ask to update and run, please do both. Once it updates, run the program and perfrom a QUICK scan only. When it is through scanning it will ask you to click on the show results button. When you do that it will show you the infections it has found, make sure they are all selected and delete them. You should be malware free now.
