Is there a freeware that will get rid of this annoying program?

Spybot and adaware do not seem to find it and while my antivirus (AVG) finds it, apparently it can not get rid of the program.

This is a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) detection. It is not a virus or trojan. PUPs are any piece of software which a reasonably security-or privacy-minded computer user may want to be informed of.



I would suggest:

First download ewido anti-spyware from HERE and save that file to your desktop.

This is a 30 trial of the program

Once you have downloaded ewido anti-spyware, locate the icon on the desktop and double-click it to launch the set up program.
Once the setup is complete you will need run ewido and update the definition files.
On the main screen select the icon "Update" then select the "Update now" link.
Next select the "Start Update" button, the update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
Once the update has completed select the "Scanner" icon at the top of the screen, then select the "Settings" tab.
Once in the Settings screen click on "Recommended actions" and then select "Quarantine".
Under "Reports"
Select "Automatically generate report after every scan"
Un-Select "Only if threats were found"
Close ewido anti-spyware, Do Not run a scan just yet, we will shortly.

Reboot your computer into SafeMode. You can do this by restarting your computer and continually tapping the F8 key until a menu appears. Use your up arrow key to highlight SafeMode then hit enter.

IMPORTANT: Do not open any other windows or programs while ewido is scanning, it may interfere with the scanning proccess.

Lauch ewido-anti-spyware by double-clicking the icon on your desktop.
Select the "Scanner" icon at the top and then the "Scan" tab then click on "Complete System Scan".
ewido will now begin the scanning process, be patient this may take a little time.
Once the scan is complete do the following:
If you have any infections you will prompted, then select "Apply all actions".

Close ewido and reboot your system back into Normal Mode.

Pls. let us know how you are doing.

So far so good

In reply to: casino on net

While it did not remove the program itself....it did seem to remove the call home or auto download portion of the program.......Just trying to decide if I should delete the folder or leave it there.

If it shows up again I will let you know.
