Cannot Remove Internet Security Suite File
Posted 09 December 2007 - 11:54 PM
I just used Autoruns for the first time and it lists these five files of iolo that automatically start:
MSAFD Tcpip [RAW/IP] Winsock Hook Module iolo technologies, LLC c:\program files\iolo\common\firewall\ifw_xfilter.dll
MSAFD Tcpip [TCP/IP] Winsock Hook Module iolo technologies, LLC c:\program files\iolo\common\firewall\ifw_xfilter.dll
MSAFD Tcpip [UDP/IP] Winsock Hook Module iolo technologies, LLC c:\program files\iolo\common\firewall\ifw_xfilter.dll
RSVP TCP Service Provider Winsock Hook Module iolo technologies, LLC c:\program files\iolo\common\firewall\ifw_xfilter.dll
RSVP UDP Service Provider Winsock Hook Module iolo technologies, LLC c:\program files\iolo\common\firewall\ifw_xfilter.dll
It won't let me uncheck them so they won't start automatically but it will let me delete them. Would this be safe since it is in a folder called Common?

If one of these LSPs is removed incorrectly, that chain could become broken, possibly removing your ability to connect to the Internet or a network.
You can use LSP-Fix to remove LSPs under advanced computer user.
LSP-Fix attempts to correct Internet connection problems resulting from buggy or improperly-removed Layered Service Provider (LSP) software. When you start LSP-Fix, it will read the list of LSP modules from the Windows registry and verify that each module is present. If a module is missing, it is placed on the "Remove" list for removal. Advanced users can override suggested removals in the "Advanced" area. When "Finish" is pressed, the undesired entries are removed, and the remaining entries in the registry are renumbered to make them consecutive. The total module counts are then updated. Finally, the program will display a summary of the changes that were made.
This program should only be used under the supervision of an advanced computer user.
For a tutorial on how to use this tool see the link below:
