Threaded View
RE: My daughter's PC, Visa Home premium, running CA AV:

She saw a popup and downloaded Antivirus 2008.
This thing is torture.. I ran CA Anti-spyware repeatedly- it removes it, and
it keeps coming back.

I Googled and removed a few registry references/startup programs 'run',
etc - Antivirus,  as well a few folders...

Still no luck.. the computer is crawling, freezing, and you can see the
screen refresh/redraw slowly....

If anyone could offer some advice and coaching, I'd greatly appreciate it..
I am not sure if it is all deleted, nor am I sure if I may have made a few
registry mods I should not have... as follows:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Antivirus
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Antivirus
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run "Antivirus"
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
"3P_UDEC" (not found on my pc)

Thank you very much...
