I've had a machine come in several times with BAD malware infections. I'll clean it and have installed WAY to much prevention and cleaner software. The laptop has Pareto Logic on it but it has never come up in a clean as a bad program. But my client is getting reinfected from somewhere. I can only blame the user(s) so much. Machine runs fine here before it goes back to the office. Anyone else have issues with Pareto being the guilty culprit? Yes I did uninstall the Pareto software and cleaned the doo-doo left behind this time. Probably should've done it before but now I'm clutching @ straws and working for free. I don't believe in wiping and reinstalling. Client loses to much and many times does not have access to software installed over a period of time.

If this is in the wrong forum please move to the correct place Mr. Admin

ParetoLogic is a data recovery program. They also provide utility software, driver updates,
and an anti-virus program. From everything I've seen about ParetoLogic, it's programs are legitimate and should not be what's causing reinfection.


If, after uninstalling ParetoLogic, the following error shows up:

Error loading C:/ Program File/ Common Files/ Paretologic/UUS2/UUS.dll

The program was likely installed on your system at some point, then uninstalled. This isn't
malware, a virus, or any other bad thing.
It's probably trying
to run a scheduled update. To get rid of it, go to Control Panel.
Open up Scheduled Tasks.
Find the entry for ParetoLogic Registration and delete it. The scheduled task entry is not deleted when the program in uninstalled.
To delete, right click on the entry, then choose Delete.

The only thing I have with ParetoLogic is that Microsoft flags some of their programs as rogues/misleading apps, and they are a partner of the corp for goodness sakes! I'm speaking from my own experience when I say this.

The AccessCop Network is just me and my crew.
