Security Master AV Uninstall Guide

I suggest following the above instructions.

In the event that fails to solve it, follow the instructions in the guide (near the bottom which begin "If you are still having problems..."

Good luck :thumbsup:.

Thank you Louse for your responce.

Just need to let you know that the infected computer will not hold open the internet page for more than a few seconds before it closes by itself.

I am using a second computer to communicate with you & am planning to use this computer to down loan any fixes to be transfered via a USB junk drive.

Will this still work with the method you have suggested to me to get rid of this problem?

Thanks again.

Rush.

Yes, it should work...if you follow the detailed instructions exactly as they are written.

You will need to download the programs listed, then burn them to CD.

In the event that you have problems that you cannot overcome...follow the directions for posting which appear (as previously noted) near the bottom of the instructions.
