What AV?

by mr.sweetchuck In reply to removal of virusprotect f ...

What is it? If it's Norton, you can download a removal tool. It's probably the same for the majority of 'big' AV providers. Failling that, there may be an uninstall option with the installation file, (CD or Download???)

Alternatively, you could delete the files from the hard disk and stop the services from running at startup, using msconfig.

I wouldn't recomend modifying the registry unless yuo know what you're doing or are willing to risk having to rebuild the machine.

What os do you have?
What are the computer specs?
What AV do you have?

More importantly, why do want to be silly and do this, I hope that you do intend to replace the AV with something like AVG.
