Hello,

 

Sometime ago I down loaded emisoft  from bleeping.

 

and I thought I had uninstalled all of it off my pc.

 

anyhow I went through the proper unintall and even used revo to finish with any leftovers.

 

and I was going to re-use emisoft again a few days ago and won't install and the error message that comes up on my screen says emisoft is already installed.

 

and I do not see it listed in the C:\ files.

 

only place I found emisoft listed was in win patrol  services..

and I see it there but I disabled it.

 

my pc is windows 8 64-bit

 

any help is appreciated.

 

Thankyou.

You can download their uninstaller to remove tracks left behind. Then you can reinstall emisoft.

FYI...for future reference: Anti-virus software components insert themselves deep into the operating systems core where they install kernel mode drivers that load at boot-up and create files/folders/registry entries in various locations. It is not uncommon for some anti-virus programs to not completely uninstall itself using the usual method of Programs and Features or Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel due to the presence of related services and processes running in the background. Sometimes the uninstall works more effectively if you first stop and disable the program's service (and associated processes) or perform the removal in safe mode so there are less processes which can interfere with the uninstallation.

I can tell you that emisoft inserts itself deep in side the core of computers, and is the most stubborn anti-virus to get off. :smash:

 

I read other online discussions about it.

 

 

I never knew until I tried to re down load it again to check for virus and to use it as a 2nd opinion scanner and then I found out would not download. error message said you already have emisoft. 

I said ok then I went back to look round  some more  to find out were the rest of the remmants was at on my pc and found one listed in winpatrols search window and clicked on that and would not do nothing. so I ignore it for a while. :lmao:

Thankyou for the info and the new link quietman. :guitar:
