    Hi. Using WinME. Does anyone know how to delete microsoft PCHealth from windows?

    I tried to turn it off in msconfig, but it just turns itself back on again every time we reboot :(

    We need to either completely delete it, or PERMANENTLY turn it off.

    Thanks :)

    Hi, PCHealth is not necessary and is easy to get rid of. Just use your search function and look for PCHealth, once it finds the folder right click on it and delete it. Now to finish the job use the run function and type regedit in the box and hit o.k., open up HKEY_CURRENT USER/software/microsoft/pchealth and delete it also. Job finished!

    Hi Again, Forgot that it also has a key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/software/microsoft/pchealth for you to delete! Ciao

    Hi,

    How to delete PChealth folder from windows. If I delete the contents inside those folders, it automatically creates again and I am not able to access my "Regedit" , "it says unable to edit registry". System "C:\", "Task Manager", "regedit" are all blocked by the PChealth virus. Can someone guide in removing this virus.

    Thanks
    Soorya
