Hi

Ive just got help in the malware removal part of the sight and was told to come here to get help to fix the following problems.

When i try to uninstall something i get a windows box with nothing in it apart from the ok button or

"The file unis000-0.bin is missing or something to that effect depending on the program im trying to uninstall"


When i open nero i get

"The nero executable file was modified! maby your pc is infected by a virus! we recommend to use the latest virus software to check your pc."


Also every time i close mozila firefox it deletes all my bookmarks, resets everything ive entered into search bars ect and resets all the toolbar icons.

Thanks in advance
brad

Are you using this version of Nero, if not, you may as well make a note of the serial number, run the general clean tool and install the new version

http://www.filehippo...nero_7_premium/

Using the Nero Clean Tool

There are clean tools available for Nero 6 and 7 but before you use them, make sure you have made a note of the serial number

Nero release updated versions, however, installing them usually involves downloading the complete package, so it can be as well to completely remove the current installation and clean install Nero

Generally, you should check the release notes for any update to see whether they include any changes which will be of use to you. If the version you have installed runs well and does everything you need, then leave things as they are.

If you decide to update Nero, download the version you need to your hard drive before removing the current installation


Click this to download versions 3 through 6 of Nero

Click this to download all versions of Nero 7

Click This for Nero 6 Clean Tool

Click This for Nero 7 Clean Tool

Run the tool and select clean all

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit, click select all, right click any file, click delete, confirm delete

Reboot the PC

Click start, all programs, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up

Click start, all programs, accessories, system tools to run disc defragmenter

Install Nero

Reboot the PC


Do you intend to re-install any of the programmes you want to uninstall now

If you can run start smart, click the word Nero on the left, then it will show the serial number

If you cannot run start smart

Before you uninstall it, have you got the Nero software CD, or the installation files on the hard drive?

Just wanted to check you can re-install it from somewhere first :whistling:

http://www.nero.com/...eng/nero-up.php

You could try the update route first, packages 1 and 2 will replace what you have, packet 3 is optional, as is package 4. Download and install package 1 first then 2 and so on, save them to the hard drive in case you need to uninstall

If it wont update, uninstall it then download the packages you want from the link in this post

the updates worked thanks

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit, click select all, right click any file, click delete, confirm delete <--- do i still have to do that?

Do you intend to re-install any of the programmes you want to uninstall now <--- no not unless i have to uninstall things i want to keep so that in the future if i want to get rid of them i can... if you get what i mean there.

eg ive got games installed but ill eventually uninstall them if i can do that without uninstalling them now cool if not then ill uninstall...

the problem also aplys to every program on the comp that has a uninstall feature not just one or two

With prefetch, if it ain't broke, don't fix it

As to the games, if they run or don't cause any problems then they can stay in place

If the uninstall information is missing, but the programme runs then leave it

Re-installing a programme usually replaces the uninstall information
