Preferred Solution: Uninstalled a potentially important program

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

So the other day I was trying to uninstall some fluff programs from my computer (after apparently downloading some pretty violent malware) and I accidentally uninstalled a program that I guess helped web images load up properly. Since then I've been getting everything from broken image links, to adds and forum posts with jumbled images and even this weird static cut-off thing. Help me find/replace the program please? Sure, it's bearable but it's ugly and driving me nuts.

I use Google Chrome for a web browser. Here are some screenshots for the problem I've been having:

I deleted some rarely used programs and defragged. My computer now runs very slow. I downloaded a few anti-virus programs (MalwareBytes, Spyware Terminator, and of course Spybot S&D) and they didn't catch anything. Now I have massive lag. I have a Dell Inspiron 2200 Laptop with 528 RAM, Windows XP, and I'm essentially a noob when it comes to this. I want to thank you guys for your help ahead of time.

A:Uninstalled programs now I have MASSIVE lag! Did I delete something important???

Welcome to TSG... Please clarify what you actually did.

Uninstalling a program implies you used the Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel. "Deleting" has another meaning entirely.

I just uninstalled Office 2010 using the uninstaller and the Windows updater keeps installing important updates for it ~300 MB at a time. How do I stop this?

A:Windows keeps installing important updates for uninstalled Office 2010

Which uninstaller did you use? The one in control panel > programs and features or something else? If programs and features you could try using the official Microsoft Fix it tool.

Can someone tell me what this is, other than what my antivirus is telling me...

Name: Generic PUP.d

Location: C:\System Volume Information\_restore{39C571A2-5C6A-433B-8AC6-DBD815F09639}\RP392\A0045864.exe

It gives me three options when it pops the alert up: Remove, Trust or close the alert. So far it's popped up about 5 times since yesterday morning and I've been telling it just close the alert.

Is this a virus or a security issue that I should let the anti-virus remove or should I let it trust it?

Thanks

A:Is it really a Potentially Unwanted Program?

I would trust it. Its potentially unwanted. Basically, the av does not know what it is.
Also System Volume is a for Restore Settings, I doubt you should be too worried.

A:Potentially unwanted program

Hi and welcome to TSG,

PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) are not always malicious. They are flagged because of the nature of the program as they can alter settings in your system or run scripts, etc.

If yours is like the other thread that I split you off from and is in system restore, then it's not a threat unless you restore your system to an earlier date.

Where is the file or pgoram located that McAfee is detecting as a PUP?

Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

A:Trojans and Potentially Unwanted Program

Hello -

For McAfee detection questions, you'd be better served asking in their support forums. They can help you more specifically about why McAfee is targeting these items.

http://community.mcafee.com/communit...ew=discussions

The first find you've listed seems to be similar to your previous topic, same folder. Seems McAfee doesn't care for what's in that folder, as internet connection setup files can be considered "dialers". Seems the folder likely came with the machine.

Artemis is a generic detection.

System Volume Information is System Restore's cache. When files get deleted, they are cached also. You can flush out System Restore and set a new clean point to be rid of that.

The registry item is very old adware, with no active loading point, what we call a "trace". I wouldn't worry myself about it.

Once again, I see no sign of active infection in these logs.

McAfee prevented a potentially unwanted program from running. Protect your PC by only allowing programs you trust.

Should I just put it in the vault?
Awhile back I had a trojan that would make copies of files, and a backup folder, and move the real program into the backup folder. I can't tell if this is similar or not. AVG is updated and hasn't found anything like this in a while, possibly from one of it's updates?

I used an uninstaller to remove some files as the left over bits were slowing my computer down, the uninstaller was called REVO Uninstaller, but i unknowingly deleted something important for the start menu it appears because the start menu no longer displays the system files and folders and programs i installed.
http://i795.photobucket.com/albums/y...Untitled-1.jpg

So now, every program i had is still there, but i can't access it from the start menu, i have to go into my computer, then find the programs company name, then access it. I tried creating a new account but it has also affected that one so i am stumped as to what happened. I can ordinarily solve most of my computer's problems, but this one i cant seem to fix.

It looks like you are running in Classic Mode? Right click the Start button/Properties and choose Start Menu. instead of Classic Start Menu. You may be using a Default profile.

A:How do I remove wutop.exe potentially unwanted program

hello, jason26, i am not a guru or geek (yet), but i have learned a little on this site!

you can copy the above url, and past it to your browser address window.

then run that program...to get you started just hit the start button. next click full system scan...and go make a pot of coffee, because the scan takes a while.

then open the logfile and be amazed at all who are tracking you!

right mouse click on any object will give many options, including info on that object. you can click a check mark in the empty box if you don't like that particular object, and if you have hundreds of cookies, you can select them all, with your right mouse click on any of the objects. after you select the objecive objects, press the "next" button, confirm your delete, then close adaware!

http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/

this is the log that is needed to be posted!

after you run the setup, click the first box "do a system scan and save a log file"...this does not take long at all.

the only thing that you need to do at this point is click save a log file (in lower left hand corner)...save it wherever you like...my documents or whatever, then open the text file it created.

copy and past the entire log file to your next posting and then sit back and wait for the replies!

an important point to keep in mind is the difference in respondent's timing! this forum is like a semi-instant messaging service and many variables play part in the speed of your replies...it may take minutes or hours to gat your replies....f5 key will refresh your page, and e-mail replies will also be generated. (you may first need to take this site off your junk-mail list!

i hope this is helpful to you and best of luck,

G'day minmin 11 and Welcome to BC.

I think a good choice would be either AVAST  or  AVIRA

Do NOT install it until we have uninstalled the existing AV program

2. Uninstall McAfee....HERE
When it has uninstalled....be sure to REBOOT

3. Install your choice of AV's

4. If you do not already have it, install Malwarebytes from HERE

When you have finished that we will go further.

A:Old Uninstalled Programs Still In Program File

Hello,

This is a common problem in windows. When a program is removed, the instal directory remains, mainly due to a untidy uninstaller.
In most cases it is safe to remove the folders of programs you have installed. Make sure not to delete any folders where the program it belongs to still exists, this will result in a ruined program.

Today, I downloaded a StickyNotes program from cnet. It came with instructions for installing and uninstalling it. For whatever reason (aka, it didn't work or open, really), I decided to uninstall it, and I was instructed to delete the files containing the program- which I supposed was logical, considering it didn't show up in the "uninstall a program" section of the Control Panel. Now though, in the Notification Areas Icon drawer-thing, the program StickyNotes.exe is still running. I can't find where it is on my laptop otherwise. How do I get rid of it?

You can use Revo uninstaller to remove the program you downloaded and installed.

Close all open programs and internet browsers.
Double click on adwcleaner.exe to run the tool.
Click on Delete.
Confirm each time with Ok.
You will be prompted to restart your computer. A text file will open after the restart.

I had frostwire installed but then I got a virus. I uninstalled frostwire and ran my anti virus and put the virus in the virus vault. I thought i was rid of the frostwire program but now everytime I try to download a torrent using Utorrent Frostwire shows up and takes over. I delete frostwire and folders from my start menu and clear my recycle bin. Frostwire is not in my add or remove programs or in my start menu after this but shows up when I try to download a torrent. I has never come back into add or remove programs but it continues to come back in my start menu. I do not know how to delete or get rid of this program.

Hi,

I had Kodak EasyShare installed on my comp, but it was never used, and it was a pain in the butt. I uninstalled it yesterday, and I deleted the Kodak folder in "Program Data" that wasn't uninstalled (for whatever reason).

But I'm still getting a Kodak registration dll error popup on startup, and it says that the required dll could not be loaded. Well, of course it can't, the program doesn't exist.

But where is this message originating? How do I get rid of it?

A:dll error notice from an uninstalled program

It's possible that the program is loading as a "service" - in which case you wouldn't see it. To get at the services, type "Services" from the Start command bar and then look for the offending program. Sorry, I don't what that would be as I don't have Easy Share.

A:Uninstalled program still showing in autoplay

Hello Antonio and welcome to Seven Forums.

As I understand it, Windows 7 uses AutoPlay Handlers to identify devices (like cameras) and Event Handlers to identify the device software. In order to remove these items from the AutoPlay dialog box, it's necessary to edit the registry. The usual cautions apply: if a mistake is made while editing the registry, your computer could become an expensive paperweight. So backup your registry by creating a restore point or exporting the registry.

Registry - Backup and Restore

This article, along with screen shots, should let you clean out those unwanted AutoPlay handlers.

Remove AutoPlay Handler from the Options List in Windows 7 / Vista / XP

In the alternative, you could search for "AutoPlay Repair Tool" or "AutoPlay Cleanup Utility" and find 3rd party software to accomplish the same registry modifications. Same caution: backup your registry before using any utility. This utility is one example of a 3rd party software:

Hi.

To make a long story short, I installed a program that works with images and then uninstalled it because it doesn't do the thing I needed it to. However, in a Winrar-style fashion, thumbnails of the images it would work with are replaced with the program's icon. This effect has stayed even though I uninstalled it. It's just an annoyance, but is there a way that I can get the image thumbnails back?

After this update, a program was uninstalled (gone with no trace). The program had a screensaver option and I noticed it when the screensaver came up blank. Its shortcut was no longer on the desktop.

Two files I had created October 12th, and was working on were deleted.
I don't know if any other files were deleted.

The update before was October 11, 2011

This appears to be a rollback not unlike a system restore. Any ideas?

Welcome to the Windows Seven forum.

Did you install the package yourself? That update came through MS Update back in June. A previous release was in April. Perhaps you deleted some files or did a restore. Another posibility is that you loaded/installed a program with old redistributable files.

I am not certain that this is possible with 2000 or XP without some sort of third party program such as resplendent resolver, which actually doesn't change the resolution, it just tricks the program into thinking it has 16 bit color.

There are some fast display switchers that come with some manufacturers display cards. There is also a free third party mode switcher called Multires from http://www.entechtaiwan.com/

Hello.

I've been having troubles with perfectdisk 10 hanging and almost making my pc unusable in normal startup mode.

I've attempted to uninstall it but when i did i was met with some sort of message telling me pdengine was not able to continue and the uninstall could not be completed.

Starting up in safe mode,disabling pdengine in msconfig/services fixed issues with not being able to do anything in normal mode, but i still cant seem to find a way to get rid of the program

The program is still installed but i don't see it in my add/remove programs. What i'd like to know is if there are any programs that can completely uninstall a prog that wasnt properly uninstalled?

Any help is appreciated.

Thaanks.

XP SP3 When I slide my sensor over a photo image icon the following info is shown:
Dimensions of image, Date image taken, Camera model, Type, and Size in Mb. My problem is the "type" shown - it is always Jasc After Shot Picture. This is INCORRECT as Jasc Afte Shot program was uninstalled 2 years ago when I installed Adobe Lightroom. Where is this coming from and how do I remove this erroneous information from the description of all of my images? Please, if you can help, give me step by step - I'm old and computer challenged!

The Data Recovery Wizard program worked for me when I lost some important files. It had a prices tag but from my experience it was worth it. You can see the details info via http://www.easeus.com. I wanted to share but also wanted to make sure that I didn't stray from the forum rules.

My Great-Uncle has Windows 98se. He uses the newest Netscape and recently clean out his inbox using the Netscape email program. For one reason or another he had un-installed the email client and now he doesn't have any access to his emails or address book. I know nothing about Netscape because I haven't used it in like, years.

Is there anyway to obtain the emails or the address book from the Netscape email application after it is un-installed?

Thanks.

Groan, I downloaded a flight sim demo, didn't like it and tried to uninstall it but a message came up saying something about "uninstaller failed to initialize or is corrupted, program cannot be uninstalled".
Same message comes up regardless of whether I hit the in-program uninstall button, or the WinXPHome Add/Remove progs routine.
So thats 100Mb of useless stuff sitting on my hard drive that can't be got rid of, and I'm already short of HD space too, groan again..
Any suggestions?
Thanks

A:Oh great, "This program cannot be uninstalled" message

You can uninstall the program manually.

Hi guys,

I'm wondering why this security patch for a zero day flaw in IE 11 is not checked by default? Surely it should be.

A:KB2964358 Important update (but not that important)

Don't know why.
I usually manually check one or right click on one & hide it.

Whenever I try to open a certain .exe file i recieve this message:

"windows found that this file is potentially harmful.
To help protect your computer, Windows has blocked this file."

It wont let me open or in some cases download the file even though I know its safe. How can I disable this to view the files?

A:Potentially Harmful.....erm NO!

Hi and welcome. Is it from Windows Mail?

If so:

In Windows Mail go to Tools > Options. On the Security tab, choose
"Internet Zone" as the Internet Explorer security zone to use. Un-check "Do
not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a
virus." Click on Apply, then OK.

Hey all,

My MSE today has said that's it's potentially unprotected as it hasn't run a scan in a while, but I run a scan nearly every day with it.

Although this is a quick scan, maybe that is the problem i'm unsure. I haven't run a full scan in a long while (I run a long scan with MBAM).

Any ideas?

Craig

...make sure that if you're using any 3rd party cleaner, especially "CCleaner", that you don't have boxes checked for "MS Security Client" or, "MS AntiMalware" or, anything that looks like it's associated with it...

Hi
After diagnosing my system, using Fresh Diagnose, the report indicated that my CPU (currently running at 366MHz), has a maximum speed of 500MHz!!

Is it possible to tweak the PC to maximize the processor's potential?

In using Microsoft Security Essentials version 2.0.657.0 with Windows 7 Pro. In download new definitions daily and run a scan weekly, monitoring is turned on. The last two days the icon is burnt orange in color and the program says I’m POTENTIALLY UNPROTECTED. I ran a scan yesterday and one today but still no “green” light. Could it be a recent update? I turned off Malware byte and that didn’t help. If I re-boot I’ll get the green icon but only for a few minutes and then it turns burnt orange. What is happening? Thanks.

I checked for a new version within MSE and none available only to find here that there is a new version. I'll go get it and hope it solves the problem.

Hello, I'm worried that my computer is infected.  I can't really put my finger on what's wrong, I just have some concerns.  A few months ago I had a keylogger that was removed.

Can you give me some advice on what to do to ensure that my computer is clean?  MalwareBytes and McAffee detect nothing.

Thank you so much.

A:Potentially infected?

- Report IE Proxy Settings
- Reset IE Proxy Settings

Copy the resulting report and paste it into your next post.

Then run ESET from here: http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner-popup/ .  Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the box to accept the EULA and click the START button. Then click the Enable detection of potentailly unwanted applications button and click Start.  Click YES to any popups you get.  This will download the virus signature database then scan your system.  That will take a good while to run - on my laptop it took about 2 hours, but you can do other things while it runs.  When it finishes scanning, click List Threats. Then click Copy to clipboard and paste it into your next post here.
