So I have some how gotten System Progressive Program Malware on my laptop.
It is my work laptop and the administration settings means I can not download software onto the computer to remove it.

Is there anyway of removing this software without the aid of downloadable software
How does one even get this malware anyway?

Hi thero_cpd,

My name is Donna and I'd love to help you clean your computer, though under normal circumstances we only offer help to clean malware from personal computers as pointed out in our Terms of Use. Please read the disclaimer under Section 3.b. which states:

We offer free computer help and tech support for home and personal use. We are not here to support others that work for profit, or to support/replace your company's IT department.

Do you have an IT Dept.? Please explain.

With the administrative settings as they are, your IT Dept. may be the only solution to remove the malware if we can't download tools for the removal of this rogue program.

In the meantime, to answer your questions on how one even gets malware installed, please read the following links:

Thank you,

Donna :)
