Personally, I wouldn't. I've seen more people have problems because they removed a program they shouldn't have.
Or a removal tool they use removes more then it's supposed to, and they end up having to figure out what it broke.

A number of programs in windows "share" files. Some of the removal tools get a little too aggressive, and will not cross check to see if any other programs use a .dll or similar file.
They remove the program you are trying to remove, and you suddenly find out, 2 other programs stop working.

But the choice is yours. Sometime you can run them, and everything is fine. It's that once in a blue moon chance that bad things happen.
Before using a removal tool, find reviews on it, or feed back from people that have used it and see if there are ever any problems with it.

Why Google Search Redirects Virus? How to Fix Google Redirecting Virus


Two good software tools can help you to fix the redirecting virus with Google search.One is the registry repairing program and the other is the malware removal tool. With the help of the registry cleaning program the infection is completely removed from the hidden registry entries of the Windows. While the anti-malware detects and removes the infection from the computer. If during search, Google redirects virus and produces undesired web results then follow these instructions:
Step 1:
Download a software to thoroughly repair and clean Windows registry. The Windows registry is an area which contains very sensitive information about all the programs running in the computer. Most of the viruses and malwares also attack the Windows registry. Unfortunately running the anti-virus/anti-malware scans only does not remove the infections from Windows registry.

Step 2:
Download a good malware removal tool and conduct scan through it. The Google search redirect virus is caused by the malwares that shall be removed from the computer. If properly used with the registry cleaning tool, the antimalware can greatly help to fix the Google redirecting virus.

Step 3:

Go to My Computer > Properties > Device Manager > Hardware > View > Show Hidden Devices. After this select the option "Non-Plug and Play Drivers" and disable 'TDSSserv.sys'. Don not uninstall it.

The above guidelines have been found to work well. Are you tired of this nuisance and want to have a quick fix to eliminate Google redirecting virus? Here are the tools which are recommended by PC experts to fix search redirect problem:

Use Intel Software Partner, RegInOut and Use Combofix Tool.You shall run RegInOut scan before and after this process if Google redirects virus in your browser.

Spyware removal


If you want to remove Movies toolbar, start fixing your computer with a full system scan. For that, I recommend using STOPzilla or SpyHunter. In addition, eliminate Movies Toolbar from Add/Remove Programs list. For that follow these steps:
Click Start -> Control Panel -> Programs (or Add/Remove Programs) -> Uninstall a Program.
Here, look for Movies and similar entries and select 'Uninstall/Change'.
Click OK to save the changes.

Finally, fix each of your browsers with these steps:

Internet Explorer:
Open Internet Explorer, go 'Tools' -> "Manage Add-ons' -> 'Toolbars and Extensions' and uninstall Movies toolbar and other entries that may be unknown for you.
Click ''Tools' -> 'Manage addons' -> 'Search Providers' and choose the search engine you used before instead of ask.com.

Mozilla Firefox:
Open Mozilla Firefox, go 'Tools' -> 'Add-ons' -> 'Extensions'; find Movies toolbar and other unknown entries and click 'Uninstall'.
Go to 'Tools' -> 'Options' and reset the startup homepage to google.com, yahoo.com or similar search page instead of ask.com.

Google Chrome:
Click the Chrome menu button on the Google Chrome browser, select Tools -> Extensions. Here, look for Movies toolbar extension and get rid of it by clicking on the Recycle Bin.
Click on wench icon, go to settings and choose 'Manage search engines'. Change search engine to Google or other. Then Go to section "On start" and make sure you get a blank page while creating a new tab.

I have CreataCard Platinum 8 version installed on my computer. Recently, I had to uninstall it and then re-install it due to some computer problems. I just tried to access the program and I keep getting...


Hi.

If you are unable to uninstall the software by way of 'Add or Remove Programs' or 'Programs and Features', it will be necessary for you to perform a manual uninstall by searching the hard drive for files and folders related to the program you want to uninstall. then manually removing those files and folders.
Many programs will install files and folders in several locations on the hard drive. And, even when it is possible to uninstall software by way of 'Add or Remove Programs' or 'Programs and Features', it is always a good idea to conduct a search of the entire hard drive then manually delete any files, folders, icons and shortcuts that are found by that search because many uninstall processes do not remove all files, folders, desktop icons and Start menu shortcuts associated with the software.
After making sure that all files, folders, icons and shortcuts have been removed from the computer, empty the Recycle Bin, restart the computer, then run a registry cleaner until no invalid registry entries are found. It is advisable to run the registry cleaner REPEATEDLY (always restart the computer before running the registry cleaner again) because fixing some invalid registry entries can cause other registry entries to become invalid.

If you are uninstalling the program because you believe that the installation is corrupt, these steps are especially important . Making sure that all files, folders, icons and shortcuts are manually deleted and using a registry cleaner to remove all invalid registry entries is the best way to ensure that all corruptioIf you don't have a registry cleaner installed on your computer, you can download the free CCleaner by clicking on the link below

Download Latest Version of CCleaner

If you use CCleaner, you must remember to click on the 'Registry' button on the left side of the window before starting the scan. And, with CCleaner, running the registry cleaner repeatedly will often cause the same invalid registry entries to be displayed over and over. If that happens more than twice, the only option is to allow those invalid registry entries to remain - because indications are that those invalid registry entries are not truly
invalid at all.

There is also an option to try and uninstall a program using CCleaner. If you click on "Tools" option on the left hand side, click on "Uninstall" and look down that list for Creatacard and try and uninstall the software using that option.

The 'Cleaner' option in CCleaner is a very useful tool for cleaning out unnecessary files and folders on the hard drive. So, it is also be a good idea to run the 'Cleaner' option in addition to the 'Registry' option.

Once you are sure that all traces have been removed restart your computer and proceed to re-install the software again.



Hope this helps.



Regards.

Thanks for your posting in FixYa.

Please do the following:

1) Click on Start, Settings, Control Panel
2) Double click on Add/Remove Programs
3) Find "My Web Search" in the list of installed programs and click on Change/Remove to uninstall it. You may also want to uninstall any of the following items associated with FunWebProducts.

If unable to remove from control panel, then try to remove them after rebooting PC in Safe mode..

CD / DVD player not listed as device on Windows Explorer


I also have the same problem. I've tried all the above plus some added info. The floppy still works when I swap it with the DVD. Occasionally it works for a short time right after a hard boot but soon after it appears to uninstall. I have searched the net for answers to this problem without success. I tried the registry correction without avail. There has been some online comments that the problem appeared after an auto update from uSoft. I believe the problem is software or firmware related.
