hello

 

       I realize this is day 2 of  a 3 day wait before asking for additional help.   I was switched  from Xp Home & Professional section of the forum to I am infected. When I  posted it was my own believe  I would  need help uninstalling  Driver Pack Solution.  I  understand that there is forum protocol.  But can use help soon.   In regards.  I am not sure what needs to be addressed.  Uninstalling Driver Pack Solutions or  eliminate the virus.  My original query was: 

 

 

 

 

    I would like to uninstall  Driver Pack Solution 14 Beta and  downloaded it  to reinstall drivers after upgrading from Xp Home to Professional.  I choose software  Driver pack solution.   Microsoft stopped supporting Windows xp and those drivers are no longer available there or at the maker website.  The computer is 12 years and runs well other wise.    At clean install  I couldn't get online without drivers and when I did get on line  I didn't have  antivirus software installed and got one Trojan virus.   The  drivers were installed  by  flash drive.  Tried  uninstalling form Add and Remove programs  ( where it no longer appears ) an  active  desktop icon appears and opens when I click on it.  Driver Pack  also appears in control panel. 

 

      When  I run a Kaspersky  virus  removal  scan it doesn't complete due to a conflict with Driver Pack Solution.

 

      I have tried the program Unlocker and other free software's  such as Revo uninstaller.   But Driver pack solution  doesn't populate in any of  them to uninstall.  Attempted  a simple tutorial to delete what ever I could from the registry.    I  am just a new be and want to uninstall to remove the virus.   With all said looking for a tutorial or step by step instructions to remove it.  Please any ideas?  C_C_.

Have you considered installing a Linux OS instead of Windows? Linux installers would likely identify the hardware and install

the proper drivers. Choosing the best Linux OS for that computer would depend on what it's resources are...amount of memory

for instance.

Unless you need XP for some program that will only run in XP then Linux would be a good choice.

 

If you would seriously consider using a Linux OS you can download one for free, burn it to a CD, DVD or a flash drive install. 

Most Linux OSes can be run as Live, which means it doesn't even need a hdd....only will run from memory. Which allows you

to test for compatibility of the computer and you before deciding to install.

 

There is a Linux forum here at BC if you need assistance or recommendations.
