Solved Is Uniblue RegistryBooster a type of malware?

February 1, 2011 at 00:56:38
Specs: Windows 7

I see mixed reviews about it on the internet, I don't know how it got onto my computer, but I can't seem to get rid of it in the conventional way using Control Panel / Add/remove program. Please help, thanks!

Jem109, next time just download revo uninstaller and remove all entries found.

That should work for you.
All those paid registry cleaners really don't do much more than the freebie Ccleaner Slim

You need to find the program folder for Registry Booster, there should be a uninstall hidden in there. Is doesn't register itself with the Windows Add & Remove Programs application.

Jem109 "I don't know how it got on my computer?"
If you don't know where it came from? wouldn't that answer your question. If like Shela57 you wen't to a reliable website to download it, then it would most likely be ok.

Mr GoodGuy / shela57 - thank you for your help, I found the uninstall program in the Registry, but when I tried to run it, it did not do an uninstall.

I then decided to delete every instance of Uniblue in the Registry, and carefully deleted the entry, or if appropriate the subdirectory that contained it.

It appears to be completely gone now, hopefully it won't come back. Thank you again.

I meant to add, that I downloaded and ran Malwarebytes anti-malware and that successfully detected and quarantined lots of bad stuff and I would strongly recommend that.

Your most welcome Jem109.
I was going to mention Revo Uninstaller as well, but thought it would hide from that as it did with Add/Remove Programs?

Malware Bytes Anti Malware isn't bad but I highly recommend Advanced Systemcare...saves a lot of IT guys a lot of time-get the pro version if you like it-they deserve the money!

advanced system care isn't worth a hoot nor the money. It just doesn't do what it says it will do.

Advanced SystemCare is junk
After using this tool for over a year, proudly thinking I'd found a great freeby, I decided just to try another cleaner today - as Advanced SystemCare was not removing my .sol file (supercookie from Flash) and I wondered if another program would.

I downloaded CCleaner (another freeby) and cautiously ran it. Much to my amazement, CCleaner removed the .sol cookie but ALSO found literally 5,000+ cookies on my system that I have clearly checked off using Advanced SystemCare to remove.

No wonder my computer has been so slow! I hate to think whatever else junk it's promised and not delivering on. I am simply astounded at the pure waste of time Advanced SystemCare is!!!!

Another product by Iobit Smart Defrag - same issue!! After downloading CCleaner's defrag program, it found my drive to be 43% defragmented! After Smart Defrag said it was totally defragged!! Don't be fooled by this product, I got suspicious when Iobit kept pushing the "Pro" version on me. Getting rid of it now!

I installed revo, in order to uninstall the free trial version of uniblue...but uniblue does not show up as installed. One writer said go to the program folder for registry, but I don't understand. Suggestions much appreciated.
