    Hey,does anyone know how to manually delete a program?My all in one downstairs has a malicious program that got past everything(wife kept clicking the "close" button,thus allowing it access,lol).
    It wont delete by programs>click>uninstall.It wont even let me do it in SAFE MODE.
    It immediatly calls out to its website,says uninstall Findingdiscount(its name),but its not an uninstall tool.Warnings pop up that says its bad to go futher.
    In the programs list,it is the only one that is listed with no publishers name,or a date it was entered in.
    I know its destroyed alot in the computer.
    I have since downloaded windows 10,trying to rewrite it,but its still there,and will not go.
    Is there anyway I can manually pick it out?
    BTW,earlier attempts at restore points are blocked,probably by it.It just goes roundy round for awhile,and nothing happens.
    Was running kasperski,got by it,and maleware doesnt detect it either.Also runing firefox after it installed.

    It ignores maleware,lol.
    I think it fluicked some "toggles" in my computer that let it do whatever it wants.
    I dont know how to un-allow it.

    There is also an AVG toolbar program that downloaded in there that totally ignores any delete requests too.
    I didnt put that in there either.
    It doesnt show up anywhere else except in the programs list.
    I just wanted to know if there is a recipe to manually pick it out of the computer.
    I think thats the only way Im going to get rid of it now.

    If you're updating the OS to Win 10, will it allow you to do a clean install, just reformat the HD and go from there?

    HOVERDESK makes some freeware called RegSeeker. Can't tell you how many times it's removed things that nothing else would. Type in the program name, it finds all the pieces, and you then remove them to a special file where they can be deleted. It even digs out the self-replicating programs that will hide in different folders.

    Try norton power eraser. https://security.symantec.com/nbrt/npe.aspx

    You could also possibly try JV16 uninstall tool and do a manual removal.

    Other option would involve going to startup repair with command prompt and manually deleting the file/directory via command prompt. Or making a boot disk and deleting it that way either through Windows PE or possibly even a Linux Live CD.

    Somehow I got part of a program called SpeedupPcpro and can't get rid of it. It wants me to activate it with a code but I never downloaded it, at least not knowingly so I don't have a code. I get around it by starting the task manager and shutting it off. A little later it will start running again. I had to take an older machine in for work and they mentioned it was hard to get rid of.

    I think Microsoft has back doors to get in our machines and hackers find these.

    Thanks guys.
    I tried the symantec download.
    It recognizes it as a problem,but same thing when I go to delete it.
    It takes me to its site,and wants to burrow further in.

    Try a system restore to an earlier date.
