I am trying to remover personal internet security 2011 from a PC using the guide on this forum
O/S running V-Slow (Vista 32 bit)and windows defender and adawre both disabled/compromised
I have sucessfully used rkill & Malware to address the problem (792 objects), and have run the batch file as requested, but have hit an issue when it comes to deleting the HOSTS file. I can delete the HOSTS file and have noticed that there is a HOSTS file called backup which was created at initial install. The system is not granting me permission to replace the file (delete was fine) - no permissions and i cant seem to be able to amend my permissions. The system isn't mine so im not sure i can get an admin password. Will the system revert to the backup HOST file automaticaly?
Thankyou for your time - this site is a great find when you realise there is a virus
