How do I remove memeo?

by catkenobi-208815654951464 / May 5, 2008 1:12 AM PDT

It some how got on to our computer. Keeps telling me I have a 25 day trial. No uninstall like other software. I have done a search and tried to delete it all. One day it appears, I delete it, the next day it reappears. How do I get rid of this? I do not need this.

Since I do not own the Memeo AutoSync software, I don't know if it will undo the work it's already done. After you unistall the software, check your external drives for folders and delete what you didn't put there. Or go over to the Memeo forums and ask the company directly:

I am having the same problem. I deleted the memeo files from regedit, removed the programs manually (they cannot be deleted from add/remove programs) and rebotted several times. I tried to contact memeo directly and have not heard back. There is something else that memeo installs that I cannot find. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated to eliminate what I consider a virus.

Just yesterday after another reccomendation, I found stuff ( I call it) lurking in the program files. Guess what was there, yep, Memeo. After I thought all this time it was gone. Nope. It was there. I went there and "tried" to delete it.It will try to install itself as you try to delete it. Just keep canceling if it does. It will eventually move to the recycle bin. After that I went to memeo site and did the regedit, both of them (link posted above). I actually then went to the recycle bin and without touching the actual Memeo, emptied the bin.

I restarted my computer. Checked the registry and deleted anything that said memeo. Just make sure auto sync is gone. I came to the conclusion that they only have you delete the auto sync portion for some reason (that's the paranoia talking). While in the registry I also checked every one of the subcategories for anything memeo and deleted it (I think I found something in asseblies{just do Memeo at the end, not beginning as I do not know what those files are).

After I made sure nothing was in my program files either.

It appears to be gone.

***Be very careful when you go into the registry. You can mess up your whole computer*****

I think I'm finally free of the offending (and offensive) software. The file I missed was 7606ACEFC96823F4F9E675E44169EC44 in the registry (I put the name here for future readers, it appears twice in the registry.) There are 2 other instances of memeo in the registry that I also deleted.

As you said, all readers should be careful editing registry files.

Although you went to uninstall (add/ remove) and it still auto load itself. So here's the beginning of it's end.

Let it load itself. Go to add/ remove and uninstall memeo (if it's still there) and also uninstall something like (truesync). It has another name that help it boot up.

Then click start and go to "run"... type in "memeo" then click find. Window will open a few different folders. Click each folder and carefully search for folders that reads memeo and wd or wp and delete all of it. It also have a hidden folder in start up menu folder. Anything affiliate with above folder just select all and delete. This will not affect any of your current programs from original.

Go back to desktop where memeo icon sucker sit and laugh. Right click the icon and click the tap "shortcut" then click "find target". Finally delete entire folder then it's sucker icon. Reboot. Done!!!

Use window washer, spy sweeper or uniblue to double clear it (if you have any). It would help if you have "http://www.ursoftware.com/" too. This memeo is now a tale tell story.

previously made a comment in there... just adding that you must also delete the registry folder and then it's finally out of sight. I'm all clear with the b.s. name and icon.
