So, when I opned Dr. Web it asked to get the updated version. Fine. I clicked "yes" and it downloaded the new version. But, I now have two icons on the desktop. After I ran the new version (which found nothing--that's good) I decided to delete one of the versions. Could not delete the old version, so I deleted the new version, planning on THEN deleting the old one (I figured they were linked that's why it could not delete the old one).BUT, cannot delete the old version. Now, I'm just pissy--IT GOES. Then, I will, possibly, download the new one again. On the other hand, any program that tells me I cannot get rid of it has me mad.
So, how do you get rid of it?

you really are talking about utility: Dr. Web Cureit? His base is not updated every time you need a new pump. Or are you talking about antivirus, but no utility? More precisely the name and product number.

Your log is posted here.

Now that your log is posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Response Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process or make things worst which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Response Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic until you are cleared by the Malware Response Team. If you still need assistance after your log has been reviewed and you have been cleared, please PM me or another moderator and we will re-open this topic.

Good luck with your log.
