This seems to be a well-known scam and there are several uninstall processes advertised. Not only have they not worked for me but I have now lost the abilitty on my laptop to "system restore" and the popping up of Total Securiy is getting worse.

I would appreciate expert views on how to eliminate this program. The standard method via control panel has been somehow blocked and files advised by some to delete in the registry are not there at all. It is possible to get some temporary relief from Windows T :thumbsup: ask Manager by closing it down but like the Phoenix it soon reappears.

We Need to check for Rootkits with RootRepeal
  • Download RootRepeal from the following location and save it to your desktop.
  • Extract RootRepeal.exe from the archive (If you did not use the "Direct Download" mirror).
  • Open Posted Image on your desktop.
  • Click the Posted Image tab.
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Check all seven boxes: Posted Image
  • Push Ok
  • Check the box for your main system drive (Usually C:), and press Ok.
  • Allow RootRepeal to run a scan of your system. This may take some time.
  • Once the scan completes, push the Posted Image button. Save the log to your desktop, using a distinctive name, such as RootRepeal.txt. Include this report in your next reply, please.

----------------------------------

Please note: If Rootrepeal fails to run, try this step: Click Settings - Options. Set the Disk Access slider to High

Also try: right-click on rootrepeal.exe and rename it to tatertot.scr
