So here's my first post. Been working on a computer, was mega infected with all sorts of lovelies. Ran AVG, AVG Antispyware, Adaware 2007, Avira Antivir, and Kaspersky internet security on it. Seems clean now, however, there are 2 programs in add/remove that will not uninstall. Pretty sure they are malware or something of the sort, as a lot of the infected compy's I work on have these items in add/remove. The name of the programs are "Internet Service" and "Secure Browsing". When you hit change/remove, it pops up a box saying "You should reboot prior to uninstalling this software. Reboot now?" with an OK or cancel button. Hitting cancel takes you back to add/remove, OK reboots. Even after reboot, hitting change/remove pops up the same box. Tried Google, but those two phrases are common enough that I can't find anything. Any help would be much appreciated.

hello and welcome to bleepingcomputer
If you really want to delete the program you can always use registry editor to do that:
start>run>regedit
click HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall
find that program you want to delete and right click it and select delete.
Now you should create a system restore point.
please read the tutorial here: system restore tutorial
Note: Please do not PM me asking for help, instead please post it in the correct forum requesting for help. Help requests via the PM system will be ignored.

If I'm helping you and I don't reply within 48 hours please feel free to send me a PM.

I don't really care about the program being in add/remove, I am more interested in making sure that these aren't active malware programs that are just going to screw things up again in a week.
