Sure will Ray.

Make sure when you reinstall, you delete ALL partitions & format.

Don't know the RAR app to which you refer; but perhaps this link may be of help as it specifically deals with its removal:

If Special Uninstaller asks you for money, don't pay, there are other ways to remove RAR Opener.

Good point from JohnW. I haven't used the app(s) in the link I posted, and it does appear to cost $29.95... It offers a free trial (which is something) but I'd be inclined to look for to look for others (freebies).

Revo Uninstaller is free, and might be equally adept at getting rid of RAR Opener.

If it is not there trvlr, I doubt any uninstaller will find it, I'm going to wait until I hear from Ray ( who I helped last year ) just in case the trial version works.

Another point to watch out for, is that free Revo is not 64-bit supported.

I use Wise Program Uninstaller

Revo Uninstaller Pro is a FULLY FUNCTIONAL TRIAL - 30 DAYS FREE!
Revo Uninstaller, 64-bit is only supported in the Pro ( paid ) version.

hi Johnw,
yes you sure did help me last year. Now, I have another problem since I would like to get rid of RAR file opener but I cannot. I tried trvlr's Revo Uninstaller but it did not do the job. I tried the 30 days free app.

I also tried the apps you suggested above but not one works for me. Tell me my next move.

Thanks

Hi Ray.

"I also tried the apps you suggested above but not one works for me"
I didn't expect it to help Ray, but I did want to make sure you knew the uninstaller I use, mainly because it works on 32 & 64-bit comps.

Lets see what these reveal.

Here are the first 2 steps, there will be more steps needed, after I see the results of these logs.

Run them in this order.

Step 1: Run AdwCleaner

Tutorial
http://general-changelog-team.fr/en...
Close all open programs and internet browsers.
Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
Click on Clean.
Confirm each time with Ok.
Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
Please Copy & Paste the contents of that logfile with your next answer.
You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.

Step 2: Run Junkware Removal Tool

On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved onto your Desktop and will automatically open.
Copy and Paste the contents of the JRT.txt log please.

ist result from AdwCleaner Can you send me again the app that compresses this
file so it would not be too big a file to transmit.

Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the Desktop.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt).

And also ensure you have safely copied "all" your personal files to external storage too. Typically DVD but an external hard drive too is nice(r)...

Check the copies are OK (accessible) on at least one other working system; and anything really important... make a duplicate set?

YW Ray, here is the info to make sure you don't make the same mistakes.

Here is how a USER got these problems, no AV would have prevented USER error. Go to any Malware forum & no matter what AV they have installed, they got infected.

As you can see from your logs, you had a lot of stuff installed, that you do not know, how it got installed.
A lot of programs, now give you the choice to install toolbars & other during the install. Either uncheck these items during install, or use Custom install. No more click, click during an install, you have to read after each click.

WARNING: CNET Download.com downloads now come bundled with opt-out crapware and toolbars ( Same applies to Softonic & Brothersoft )
http://www.groovypost.com/unplugged...

I use Softpedia & FreewareFiles.com, they make you aware what Ad-supported programs the author of the program has included.
http://win.softpedia.com/index.free...
http://www.freewarefiles.com/new_fi...
Sample pages
http://www.softpedia.com/get/CD-DVD...
First and foremost, extra attention needs to be paid during installation as ImgBurn offers to create desktop shortcuts to third-party apps, as well as install a browser toolbar onto the host computer, which are not required to ensure the smooth running of the app.
SS of above.

It is "so" easy to install stuff you don't wish or intend to; as so much of the software download off the web has "bundled additions" pre-checked for installation - for "your" convenience; and which will be installed automatically when you use that automatic install option.

Hence the oft repeated advice to use the custom/manual option, and carefully verify what unwanted "stuff" may be still pre-checked - even after running Unchecky - and "uncheck" it.

Well dun to Johnw (and to you raycuardo for sticking with this one to the end).
