I am painstakingly trying to fix/repair my computer.  I have a 64bit OP w/Vista. I just noticed a program by InfoWatch

called CryptoStorage. I have no idea what it is and it was taking way too long researching it. Can I get rid of it? I am

really curious how I got it.   

 

Thanks,

Karen

It's an application that allows you to encrypt data on your machine to deny unauthorized access to that data. It may have been part of an OEM bundle or came bundled with another application. It retails for @24.95. Here is a copy of the user guide in .pdf format. That may help you decide to keep it or delete it.

Thanks for the info. I decided to take a look at the user guide that you suggested and I flipped 1 page and there it was

the dreaded Kaspersky. It has taken over my computer. It's the 1 last issue that I can't quite seem to figure out. I had

downloaded the trial version of Kaspersky pure 2.0 (huge mistake- lesson learned). I have had people suggest to get

the uninstaller from Kaspersky, but in looking at the info. regarding the removal tool, it's not just a simple removal tool.

They say you need the code from when you installed the trial. And I already have problems because of a download

from Kaspersky, I don't need any more. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks for the help

Karen

My suggestion is that you follow up with your original topic here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/490876/help-with-kaspersky-issues/

You can link back to this one to give them more information. If indeed this is bundled with Kaspersky finishing your other topic may resolve this issue.
