I have no idea how I downloaded this, but now every time I turn on my computer this starts to run and all I can do is close it. I have searched for it, and found nothing. I have tried right clicking when it comes on the screen and nothing, all I can do is close it. (eScan Antivirus Toolkit Utility Ver (4.4.7)
I have no idea what it is doing.
Any ideas?
Thanks! :thumbsup:

Looks like Antivirus software.
Looks like a 30-day trial, if you didn't purchase it.

This is what I found on Escan:
eScan Internet Security Suite

You can go here and click View Screenshot to see if it's the same thing you have:

From a PM:

The screen shot on the eScan doesn't look the same as the one that I get.

Have you checked your Add/Remove programs, in the Control Panel, for this program?
If it's there, have you tried to delete it.
If it is, and you haven't tried to delete it yet, do it in Safe Mode:
How to start Windows in Safe Mode

Let us know if this works, or not.

From a PM:

I looked in the add/remove and still can't find it.


Is there an icon for it on your Task Bar, at the bottom of your screen?
If so, when you right click it, does it give you the option to disable it?
If so, disable it.
Then look for it in C:\Program Files.
If it's there, go into the folder and look for an uninstaller, and double click it.
That should uninstall it.

If this doesn't help, post back here.

Kaspersky is a well known, and highly thought of Antivirus.

Where did you find it, and how did you get rid of it?
