Hello,

sometime ago i have done the biggest mistake I could have and downloaded Bitcomet P2P utility. it has messed up my computer and filled it with viruses from top to bottom so I am trying to get it all back together. I started with removing spyware and malware and viruses and deleting Bitcomet but it happened that after I removed it from Control panel/Add and Remove software no space has been freed on my hard disc and as it took up 12GB it is quite noticeable it is still somewhere there...

Any ideas how to remove it completly???

Thanks for tips...

Monika xxx

You will need to run more than one different virus scan software to completely remove all of it. You should scan your computer with a least 4 different kinds of scanners. You have virus, adware, spyware, trojan, malware and other types of software.

Scan using them, and try to clean what you can. You also need to clean out your registry.

If you still have the problem with the used space after doing your scans/cleaning, just post a HJT log in the forum.

In normal mode, run an online antivirus check from at least two and preferably three of the following sites
BitDefender
Computer Associates Online Virus Scan
Panda's ActiveScan
Trend Micro Housecall
Windows Live Safety Center Free Online Scan
This scanner from Trend does not require an Active X to run.

1. Detects and removes malware ( viruses, worms, trojans, etc. )
2. Detects and removes grayware and spyware
3. Restores damage caused by malware to your system.
4. Notifies about vulnerabilities in installed programs and connected network services.
5. Multi-platform support for: Windows, Linux, Solaris.
6. Easy-to-use with the Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.

Hi Monika:

Make sure you have subscribed to your HJT topic. I see that you posted one in late January, but never responded to your helper. Your HJT thread is here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/79382/so-slow-to-get-going/ If this problem here is the same concern as the one in that thread, please follow the directions in post 3 of that thread. Otherwise, follow the HJT posting directions in your other Am I Infected topic buddy215 referred to.
