memturbo 4 uninstall

Specs: Windows XP
While trying to install a "Clear Registry" program today, somehow "memturbo 4" got in the system. Am trying to uninstall this unwanted software but it refuses to leave. It says that it is working elsewhere on the system and to stop it before uninstalling it.

Also noted that the "memturbo 4" software (or virus) has tomorrow's date on it. Very strange. Any suggestions?

I don't know much about memturbo but it seems like it needs disabling before you will be able to uninstall it. Check it's icon or control panel to see if there is a disable facility supplied. If not, type msconfig in the Run box and if you see it there in startup, "untick it". Once you can re-boot without it starting up you will probably be able to uninstall it.
If all else fails use this:

If its a virus then try downloading, installing, updating and running MalwareBytes freebie for starters.

Be aware that RAM boosting programs never help because they simply move the problems elsewhere (such as producing excessive paging to your HD which is slower than RAM). If you are short of RAM you need to add more.

Similarly registry cleaners can often mess up the system because every computer has a different mix of software and they cannot always interpret the registry entries correctly. Unused registry entries are ignored so they cause little trouble and removing them makes no obvious speed difference. If you must go that way then the one included in CCleaner is probably about the safest. My view is that if you don't understand the entries registry cleaners are removing then it's best to steer clear of them.

We all live on a ball.
