From the start menu, do a search, all file and folders, key word webroot spyware or antivirus. Then delete the items that pertain to the spyware/antivirus manually.

Manually Uninstalling Startup Control Panel Startup Control Panel is supposed to appear in Add/Remove Programs so that you can uninstall it easily. Unfortunately, at some point several years ago, something changed in Windows such that this entry is not created properly on new installations. Sorry about this. Here are detailed instructions for uninstalling the program manually.
Step 1. Close Startup Control Panel If Startup Control Panel itself is open, close it by pressing the X in the upper-right corner of the window.
Step 2. Close Control Panel If the Control Panel window, where you access the icons for all the different control panels (Display, Fonts, Sound, etc.), is open, close it by pressing the X in the upper-right corner of the window.
Step 3. Delete program file Delete the following files, if they exist. Only one of them should exist.

  • C:\Windows\System32\Startup.cpl
  • C:\Windows\System\Startup.cpl
Detailed instructions for step 3:
Navigate in Windows Explorer to the directory C:\Windows\System32 . Click away any warning messages until you see a long list of hundreds of files. Find the file named either "Startup" or "Startup.cpl". Delete the file by right-clicking on it and selecting "Delete" from the menu that pops up. Confirm the deletion and then verify that SCP has been removed. Do not delete any other files or directories: doing so can damage your operating system.
If you can't find the file in that folder, also look in C:\Windows\System . If you get an error message saying that the file is in use, verify that SCP and Control Panel are closed; if so, try restarting your computer and deleting the file as soon as the computer starts up again.
Step 4. Delete registry entries (optional) I do not recommend performing this step. It is only for advanced users who want to expunge every last trace of Startup Control Panel from their system. If you do not perform this step, a little bit of information stored by SCP will remain in your system registry. This information will not affect or slow down your system in any way if it is allowed to remain. Removing this information requires using the Registry Editor, which, if improperly used, can seriously damage your software and operating system. Proceed at your own risk!
Start the Registry Editor (regedit.exe) and delete the following keys and all their subkeys, if they exist:
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\mlin\StartupCPL
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\mlin\StartupCPL

Follow this in removing it:

1) Download Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml).
This small utility will help you remove any startup entries left behind by Webroot.
2) Run regedit and delete the Webroot key in HKLM>Software
3) Delete the Webroot Folder in Program Files.
4) Search for webroot and delete any other files/folders that remain.
5) Use CCleaner to delete any other temp install files

Hope that helps........

  3. Spybot antispyware software http://www.safer-networking.org/index2.html you need to run this program 1-4 times a month to keep your pc clean. it doesn't work on the background like the firewall and antivirus.

Computer virus


Make a BartPE boot disc. Put an addon for an antivirus program and an antispyware program in it too. Boot the computer up from that disc, and run bot the antivirus and the antispyware program and get rid of any problems. Also, if you want/need to, back up your data with it to an external drive.

Trend Micro Antivirus/Vista Antivirus 2008


Hello there.

Unfortunately you have been infected, by the software called "Vista Antivirus 2008". What this software does is infect you, then prompt you to pay to remove the infection that it installed. So it is a scam.

What i would recommend is use the uninstall instructions from here http://www.windowsvistaplace.com/xp-antivirus-2008-removal-instructions-xp-antivirus-2008/spyware-removal

This will remove the infection (and others) from your system.

Once you have completed the steps, be sure to try an online scanner such as housecall here http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
This will not conflict with your already-installed Trend Micro software, it mearly runs through your web browser.

On that note, Internet Explorer is not very safe for browsing the Internet with, i would recommend either Firefox or Opera for a safer/better browsing experience.

Hope this helps.
