    Have you tried removing it using the add/remove in Windows?

    It's in Control Panel.

    if all else fails.

    format your hard-drive!

    Does it scan your computer when it opens, then when you click remove it asks you to buy it?

    I used these after much searching.

    It was the worst thing I have seen on a pc. It wouldn't let me reinstall windows or format the hard drive either.

    Any ideas how you got it? it was a friends pc and I fixed it but I'd love to know where she got it from?

    it keeps coming up in the corner with warnings about finding trojans etc :x think my son probably let it in when looking for game sites
    hi SS:-D

    restore to a previous date, worked for me recently, if not then try scanning using freeware aswell as adaware. Try in safe mode...if all else fails full system restore

    that will remove it im sure, ive used it to remove PAV from family computers.

    Have you sorted it?
