Mod Edit: moved to Antivirus tools ~~ boopme
 
 
Tried to uninstall emsisoft free program and was only able to do so partially. When I tried to reinstall same get message saying to uninstall existing program when I try to do so I get the following message "C:\Program File (x86)\emsisoft anti-malware\uninstall 000.msg" missing. please correct or obtain new.
Emailed emsisoft support two days ago, still waiting on response. Posted problem with access being denied via secured router, but I feel that problem is due to emsisoft fire wall which I can not disable since I can not completely uninstall defective program, nor can I install a new program. Any help would be more than appreciated. Had to move entire PC to another location so I can access internet via hard wire, HELP!

Hi Johnnyedee & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

 

See if the problem is solved by using this Uninstall Tool of Emsisoft -

 

http://tmp.emsisoft.com/fw/emsiclean.exe

 

Let me know how it goes ^_^

This is a summary of instructions provided by Fabian Wosar, Emsisoft Employee.
1. Save emsiclean.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to run.
2. Read the disclaimer carefully and press "Yes" if you accept it.
3. The tool will then show a list of all Emsisoft Anti-Malware and Mamutu objects it found installed on your system.
4. Enable the check boxes of all objects you want to remove. Be careful with objects of type "Folder" and check their contents before selecting them for removal, as they may still contain data that you may want to save first.
5. Then press the "Remove selected objects" button and reboot when asked.

Thanks for the help! It has removed it all. The only rub is that I still can't remove it from the control panel on uninstall, nor can I remove it from start up folder (it is unchecked). But I am up and running on a unsecured Wi-Fi access at present. Hopeful emsisoft firewall issue with secured router is finally resolved. Thanks again!

Orphaned or invalid entries in the Programs & Features (Add Remove Programs) List can be removed by editing the registry or by using a third-party utility.

List of third-party uninstallers (Add/Remove alternatives):These tools work similar to Windows Add/Remove (Programs and Features) but include several options in addition to uninstall. For orphaned entries, right-click on the entry and choose "Remove Entry" or "Delete" to remove it from the list.

Anything found in the Start Menu can be manually removed by right-clicking on the entry and choosing Delete from the context menu.
