My son recently downloaded Ares, and we want to delete it. It does not show up in the Control panel Add or delete programs, but only in the Programs file on My computer. When I try to delete it I get a message that says Cannot delete Ares. Access denied. Make sure disk is not full or write protected and file is not currently in use.
we also keep getting a pop up from our virus software (Trend micro) that says a threat has been detected as an application keeps trying to access our computer. The threat is Ares.
What should I do?

Thanks,
Sandy

Thanks, Mystic eyes. What a pain. I went to the spywaredb.com site, downloaded it and ran the scan. It said it found all sorts of low and medium level threats but you have to buy the software for them to remove the threats. Don't you hate when that happens? There were also instructions for how to remove Ares manually, but they make no sense to me.

Below listed processes registry entries files are part of this spyware. To manually get rid of it, follow these instructions (at your own risk).Ares Removal Instructions
Kill the following processes
ares.exe
Delete these registry entries
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run\ares

Remove the following files
ares.exe in Program Files\ares\

Does any of that make sense to you? I am also downloading the other free software you recommended, so hopefully it will be more helpful.
