Help with PC Cleaner Pro
« on: April 20, 2013, 04:21:00 AM »
I downloaded this program about a month ago to try to uninstall a program , I know dumb, usually I stay away from software like this. Anyways, after I was done I uninstalled it, no problems. Deleted any folders I could find, manually checked the registry not a sign of it anywhere. However when I use Belarc Advisor it shows 2 anti virus programs, Avast and PC Cleaner Pro.

I've scanned with Avast and Malwarebytes.
Did a registry search.
Tried Sysinternals Process Explorer and Registry Scanner.
Tried Ccleaner.
Tried Appremover.
Tried adwcleaner

Nothing. No sign of it anywhere. I think I even looked in the prefetch files.

I think its a uninst.exe file.

Anyone know how I can find and get rid of this.

Thanks.

attach a OTL diagnostic log..... then a removal expert may be able to remove any leftover files for you

Ignore, it worked.

I have Revo uninstaller, however PC Cleaner Pro does not show in installed programs, as I mentioned I think its just a pesky file hidden somewhere.

Thanks.

Hi I agree it is probably a hidden registry key, it does not show as active anywhere in the logs

For 64bit systems, download SystemLook from here.
 
 
  • Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
  • Copy the content of the following codebox into the main textfield:

PC Cleaner Pro

  • When finished, a notepad window will open with the results of the scan. Please post this log in your next reply.

In that case it may be just data held in windows security centre
