It is Earthlink software, ( from a ISP provider) I stopped using this program and their services about 2 years ago.
Recently i have done some cleanup on my desktop, i tried to uninstall through add/remove programs. The program would not allow me. The program i am referring to is there Earthlink accelerator program. I had to resort to deleting these files manually and have ran into some problems.
Whenever i open any folder at all my windows installer tries to install this program although it has been deleted. Which wouldn't be a problem except for the fact i cannot install anything else until this program is installed.
It is very annoying
Steps that i have taken:
Contacted Earthlink, They were unable to diagnose this problem.
Deleted all registry values for the earthlink software.
Downloaded process explorer so i can see the threads and current installations of my windows installer. Killed all threads and current processes under the misexec.dll tab. (windows installer file)
also there are two files i cannot delete because it says they are protected these are: prplsf.dll and
I am at wits end with this very annoying software. Any suggestions?
