Can't uninstall Vongo

by dhirub4u / September 11, 2006 12:48 PM PDT

Hi All,

I'm running XP SP2 on an HP laptop. Every time I log
into my user account, I get an error message.

See for a screenshot of the error message.

I deleted all the files associated with Vongo, but the auto install keeps happening every time I log in. I have to use Task Manager to abort the install. Any way to disable the auto install? Something in the registry?

1. Microsoft Installer Cleanup Utility
2. Hijackthis

Usually I kill it off with both of these.

My workaround to the problem

I was able to uninstall Vongo from my Compaq Notebook using the Control Panel -> Add Remove Program. That said, there are limitations:

1. You must use an Admin Account to do the actual removal.
2. The InstallShield script only removes Vongo from the Admin Account.
3. If you switch users or log into another user account (i.e. Guest account) you will find yourself in a never-ending dialog loop, which makes it difficult to move forward during Startup. You must then call down the task manager (using 3 finger salute) to halt the beast. The next time you login to other than Admin Account, you will have the same problem.

Because I hosed up the Windows Registry trying to fix it, I had to do a complete PC Recovery using Startup Disks. I have yet to find a permanent solution to the problem and use only the Admin Account on my new notebook. I also taught guest users how to kill the task.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
