WildTangent Program Warning
Wild Tangent is a video game software company specializing in online games. It has even made a partnership with AOL to include itself as part of the AOL Instant Messenger for their AIM games section. The WildTangent Web Driver is their technology that allows you to play 3D games over the Internet. Although it's not technically considered spyware it does have built in components to update itself and gather information about the computer system including:
- Operating System Version
- CPU Type and Speed
- Memory Amount
- Video Card type and Driver Version
- Sound Card type and Driver Version
- DirectX Version
- Location that the Web Driver was installed from
For that reason, I would suggest you uninstalled it via add/remove.
Reboot after the uninstallation.<- Important.
We need to remove programs using "Programs and Features"
Open Computer and click on the "Computer" tab, then click on Uninstall or Change a Program.
A list of programs installed will be "populated" (this may take a bit of time).
If they exist, uninstall the following by clicking the below entries and selecting "Remove":
AVG Driver Updater
AVG PC TuneUp
Additional instructions can be found here if needed.
We need to run a fix with FRST:
- Please download the attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the same location as FRST
Note: It's important that both files, FRST.exe/FRST64.exe and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work
NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on that particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system
- Run FRST.exe/FRST64.exe and press the Fix button just once and wait
- If for some reason the tool needs a restart, please make sure you let the system restart normally, then let the tool complete its run
- When finished, FRST will generate a log (Fixlog.txt) in the same location the tool was run, please post it to your reply
How's your computer running?
After the fix has been completed, please create a new set of FRST log files (FRST.txt and Addition.txt) for me.
If I don't reply back to you in 2 days, feel free to send me a PM.
