I have Dell PC Windows XP Home edition. Somehow there is that "UGLY" program called 'PC MightyMax v1', which I can not remove.
I did go to <Start><Control Panel><Add/Remove><Select PC MightyMax v1>and click Add/Remove to uninstall.=I get the following:
WISE UNINSTALL
Could not open INSTALL.Log file
OK
Then I tried this:<Start>click <RUN> and type MISCONFIG and click OK. Once the Window comes up click on the Start Tab. In this Window I looked for 'Realtime' (or 'PCD Realtime'). When I found 'Realtime' I unchecked the box next to its name and click <Apply> and click <OK>. Then I restarted my computer and that "UGLY, VERY, VERY, VERY "UGLY" and parasitic 'PC MightyMax v1' is still there.
Please any one who knows help me to see the light at the end of tunnel. (Who gives them RIGHT to drop anchor in my computer and I can not Remove them, but any other program I can Remove?!).
Have nice day & Thank you very much. Aspalathos :thumbsup:

That does look like a nasty piece of work! The thing that bothered me was after 10-15 minutes googling I could not get past the fake search engine sites like <anything>.treert.com.

I only found one useful link and this comment in a forum:

In the start>control panel>add/remove programs, PC MightyMax has a "Change" option.
Select that. it runs the PC MightyMax installer, but then presents you with an option to uninstall.
Worked for me.


Try the following, then, if it doesn't work look at submitting a HijackThis log:
please read the pinned posts 'How to use this Forum' and 'How to post a HiJack This log' at the top of the forum:

But first:
Is your Anti-virus program current and updated? If not you can download a free anti-virus program here (US Link): AVG Free
When you have downloaded and installed it you need to go online to register it and update it. (It will probably prompt you to do this.)
Once you have installed AVG uninstall your old Anti-Virus software because you should only have one running on your system.

Do you have any anti-spyware installed? If not download and update all of the following:Reboot your computer in Safe Mode and run the anti-virus scan and anti-spyware scans there.
If you are not sure how to boot in Safe Mode there is a tutorial here: Safe Mode

See if that helps :thumbsup:

I did find one person who says that when you go to Add/Remove Programs, there is a "change" option. If you choose that, it will start the installer, and one of the options is to remove the program. You might try it and let us know if it worked.

that is the correct way to uninstall..another option is go to c\programs, (wherever you have it dled, try search find target) open, select all programs, delete. However, using this method will delete programs needed for other functions!!!! Have backups for these.
