Dear mosrt,

If you have a bunch of anti-spyware programs poping up when you turn on your PC, you may have a bad case of OEM preinstalled software. This type of software is generally easily uninstalled so make a list and start uninstalling from the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel.

Good luck!

How to Uninstall Unwanted Programs?


As we know that it?s more difficult to uninstall programs than installing them. It?s observed that programs always leave their update folder or some DLL files. Some programs even leave their registry values in system registry. That?s why these programs still pop up after being uninstalled and strange DLL errors appear. Control panel is the most common method to uninstall a program. But it can?t completely remove all components of a program.


Users sometimes want to uninstall and reinstall a program, but there will be a pop up saying that program has been installed and our users can?t find it. Some users want to change their anti-virus or anti-spyware and uninstall them thru control panel. When they install another anti-virus or anti-spyware, there is another pop up saying their previous anti-virus or anti-spyware is still there, please uninstall it first.


In the above cases, users can?t find the uninstalled programs nor install the new ones. When users uninstall programs with Perfect Uninstaller, it will uninstall the program and scan the registry for the left over entries as well as drivers for the left over files. These three steps ensures a complete...

Preventing Spywares from Entering your System is not that Difficult.
You should Never Trust a Pop Up that Says your System is Infected or Anything Like that if it is a Message from your Internet Browser. Following are some of the Thumb Rules that can prevent Spywares from Entering your System:
Stop Visiting Websites that offer Cracked Softwares or Other Illegal Activity.
Do Not Visit Porn Related Websites.
Do not Visit Websites that Generate Unwanted Pop Ups.
DO NOT Click on Any Pop Ups that are Generated by your Internet Browser. (ALWAYS Use the RED X on the Top Right To Close the Pop Up)
Avoid using File Sharing Softwares. If you are using them, use it very carefully and Read the "License Agreement" Before Installing those Softwares, as they may mention about other Softwares that are being installed.
Install a Good Antivirus and Keep it Updated Regularly.
Keep your Windows OS Regularly Updated and if Possible, be sure that Service Pack 2 is installed as it also has a good Pop Up Blocker.
Install a Good Anti Spyware like Ad Aware or Spy Sweeper or Windows Defender and Keep it Updated.
Run a Virus Scan using Antivirus at least Once a Week.
Run a Spyware Scan using Anti Spywares at least Once in every 3 or 4 days (If Possible Every Night Before Turning Computer Off).

Pc recovery not working


Update your Anti Virus definitions to current, then reboot your PC into Safe Mode (tapping F8 on boot will give you the boot option screen, choose "Save Mode"), then choose your Operating System and click "Yes" to the pop up, then once at your desktop click Start, All programs and open your Anti Virus and run a Complete/Thorough scan to completion and hopefully it will detect and repair the Virus damage. Then reboot Normally and your system may be repaired.
Good luck!

(If I understand your first problem is: you may have some virus and/or spyware) Update and run your anti-virus program.
You need to install update and do all the tweaks on a recognised anti-spyware program.
 If you have an anti-spyware program installed make sure it is NOT listed on 'The Spyware Warrior List of ‘Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products & Web Sites’
http://www.spywarewarrior.com/rogue_anti...
Those are "anti-spyware programs" that install their OWN spyware, while 'supposedly' removing everything else.
Use instead "Ad-Aware 2007", "Spybot - Search & Destroy", "SpywareBlaster" are three good ones. Beware of imitations and name similarities. Install and update then run them weekly after doing the latest updates.
Lastly, to stay OFF of Weird and Strange websites!  ;>)
Install McAfee SiteAdvisor.

After you clean-up your computer.
Go to your "Device Manager" (Right click on ‘My Computer', select 'Properties', click the 'Hardware' tab, click the 'Device Manager' button. Click the "Sound video and game controllers"). If there is some kind of a "Warning" icon superimposed on the 'Vidieo Camera' icon there is your problem!
If no "Warning" icons then try...
One at a time...
Double click on each of the devices that have 'Vidieo' in the listings.
Click the "Properties" tab; look for any "Warning" icons
Uninstall the DRIVERS for THAT DEVICE only. See instructions below.
Click on the faulty device and hit the remove button, follow the instructions given by the program.
Shutdown, restart, the device will automatically reinstall by the "Found New Hardware" program.
