Hi, I am having trouble removing a program off a friends laptop. When I try to delete it using add/remove programs, it tells me that the program cannot be removed. The program is called trash eraser and when the laptop starts up he has to click close on the little cross 10 times before he can use the laptop. Just wondering if someone can help me fix the problem.
Thanks, Mike.

TrashEraser is a corrupt spyware remover. It infects computers with help of trojans and then it attacks user with fabricated security warnings. Trash Eraser warns user against registry errors, system security breaches and similar things, but all these alerts are falsified.

TrashEraser displays exaggerated security reports in order to scare people and push them into buying full version of Trash Eraser. If you are in previously described situation, don’t purchase TrashEraser!
If you do, you will pay for having a parasite on your computer.

TrashEraser is a malware. ]Remove Trash Eraser as soon as possible.


I am guessing that you are not too much of an expert but the only way to clear the crapware is to stop it running in the first place, there will be a startup line in there and this software will have placed a line in there which has to be removed. Also you could try checking for service with names relating to the software. Also run the name on google and you may find someone has produced a removal tool.... hope that helps

there you go ... put there while i was typing!!
