Hello there, ......question. Has anyone deleted the "Sweet packs Updater" folder from your registry? Has its removal caused any operational programs? I don't have the sweet packs virus, just the registry entry from a previous drive-by download. It looks safe to delete.............but...you never know for sure.

 

 

Thanks

Tools like AdwCleaner, Junkware Removal Tool and Malwarebytes detect Sweet Packs and automatically remove all its related files, folders and registry entries. Automatic removal is easier than folks mucking around in the registry searching for and deleting stuff.

Worked like a charm! Not only did ADwCleaner get rid of 'sweetpacks updater', but it found a boat load of other stuff i didn't even know had downloaded itself without my knowledge. The program even out performed Malwarebytes!

 

Thanks quietman7

You're welcome.

As far as the other stuff it found which you did not realize was downloaded and installed, please read:
