Hello, I accidentally installed Antivermins. I keep getting annoying messages on the right-bottom of my screen that I need to update a virus-scanner, but I already have McAffee. Even worse is that my computer is running three or four times slower. So I did a search on google to find out how to get rid of it. I first found this site: remove-antivermins.org/
. That site recommends using XoftSpy so I installed it, registered it, and ran it. It looked like it was doing a good job, it claimed it found a list of adware etc. and deleted them. But the update-messages remained, antivermins was still active. So I tried several forums, one of them was this one. I found this: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/69886/how-to-remove-antivermins-antiverminser-or-antivermeans-removal-instructions/
and I tried it. I did everything as was recommended, but here's the problem: the uninstall-guide says that I should let disk-cleanup perform it's task, but it's been "cleaning up" for over eight hours now and there doesn't seem to be any progress! It's still calculating how to comprise old unused files. I actually had the same problem a while ago when defragmentating; it just lasts forever. I think there should be a way to set disk-cleanup to not comprise the old files, but how? Or do I actually have to wait for a week until it's finished?
: Topic moved to a more appropriate forum.
