My control panel won't remove An ad-ware or a virus off of my computer. It installed itself to my computer and is call (ADVITISMEN). Everytime I remove it and it says for it to be complete you have to restart computer for it to be completely removed. I restarted it, but it still won't remove the program or virus. I tried getting virus removie and spy hunter. It removed some things but not that virus. The program jus won't go away. It causes crashes and make the computer freeze, all you can see is your background with the arrow. You can't open nothing or do anything. Even the (ctrl + alt delete) won't work. It won't even respond and many of the times I have to push the power or off button right off of the HP. Which messes up my computer more.

Read this topic. Follow all the steps given and see if that gets rid of it. If not then post a HJT Log.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Advertman is a very strong spyware pest. Try to follow these removal instructions. If that fails please follow the steps as set out by Budapest
