Hi,

I recently, well, it's been about a 6 months now since i've downloaded this Soundmax Driver. My original Legacy Driver somehow disappeared- probably from me screwing with the drivers- Anyway, i now have this Soundmax driver and i can't for the life of me get rid of it. I've tried just about everything. I have a older Dell PC (2001) using Windows XP Service pk 3. Did all the Maleware, antivirus, adware scans i could find and yes, that did rid me of some junk, but the Driver will not go away. When i go into remove it through the Control Panel it lets me do it, BUT, when i restart the PC, it re-installs itself.

I found this from 'SecurityStronghold.com' and it sounds like they have a grasp on the problem, except of course, they want to charge me for it. I was hoping not to pay the 39 clams that they want to charge. Please help if you can. Thank-you. Matt

From Security Stronghold:
soundmax virus intrusion method
soundmax virus copies its file(s) to your hard disk. Its typical file name is *.*. Then it creates new startup key with name soundmax virus and value *.*. You can also find it in your processes list with name *.* or soundmax virus.

I've tried using the most recent version and most comprehensive Malwarebytes scan. It removes malware, but doesn't remove Soundmax. I believe it's attached to the startup somehow.. I delete it and when i do, it asks me to reboot so it can re-install itself. Also, my PC has locked up and acted funny many times when trying to delete Soundmax. I've tried at least 20times to delete it and it keeps coming back. I really think it's more than a scan. I'm no expert, but i can tell you i've scanned an a**load w/no luck. ty
