I'm attempting to help my friend make his computer useable again. He somehow got Winantivirus Pro on his computer and when it told him he was infected he ran the scan and ever since then he has been unable to open any applications. I went to his task manager and it was filled with spools.exe and a few spoolsv.exe. I found through a google search that sometimes idle printing jobs will slow the computer to a halt but he does not even have a printer hooked up to cause a problem of that sort. Since I am unable to open both mozilla and IE I can't download HijackThis or spybot to get a sense of what is going on. I'm assuming we will just have to reload windows but I'm hoping there is an easier fix. Thanks for helping us out and let me know what can be done to help you resolve this problem.

P.S. I am typing this from another computer.

My recommendation would be to disconnect that computer from the internet IMMEDIATELY as how WinAntiVirus Pro is also a keylogger and can take screen shots of the system.

WinAntiVirus Pro is a tough application to uninstall. It can wreak havoc in your system with its extremely damaging capabilities. You must make it a point to remove this application by quickly detecting and removing the rogue applications and all of its components. This process involves removing all application processes, registry keys, DLL files, and other hazardous files from your computer. To avoid the unnecessary risk of damaging your computer by WinAntiVirus Pro, we recommend using a reputable antispyware program to safely remove it. Most antivirus programs are not designed to remove WinAntiVirus Pro because it isn't a virus.

Removing WinAntiVirus Pro is a challenging process, but it is possible to eliminate this pest from your system, either by an exhaustive manual process or by using an easier automatic method. If you are not familiar with the intricacies of working with your registry, using the manual removal method may do damage to your operating system. If you are a non-technical person then please consider using a reputable antispyware program to do it for you. ParetoLogic's XoftSpySE is a good one. If you still face a problem, you can always contact ParetoLogic to have access to one-to-one help.

To remove WinAntiVirus Pro completely by using an automatic tool, you may need to first uninstall the application to delete all system installation files. Here is a brief procedure that will assist you to remove WinAntiVirus Pro from your computer system:

* Uninstall WinAntiVirus Pro by using the "Add/Remove Programs Utility" in your system.
* Restart the computer in a Safe Mode.
* Once the system boots up in the Safe Mode, you can run a good spyware removal utility like ParetoLogic XoftSpySE to scan the system files and folders. This tool will remove almost all traces of WinAntiVirus Pro installation from your computer.
* You can also use the auto cleanup facility to delete all WinAntiVirus Pro related files and folders from the system. This procedure may take a long time to finish, as it will probe and explore every corner of your computer system.

This will automatically detect WinAntiVirus Pro and safely remove all traces of it from your computer.
