    Any suggestions on how to remove Advanced System Protector? I tried to uninstall program, but Windows block stated file does not exist. ACS block still shows up on screen upon computer start up. I went into registry to remove but was not sure which file was ACS. Thanks in advance for you help.

    did you uninstall from add/remove or your programmes,you could look in your c-drive >programme files and see if there is a folder in there to delete

    I did go into my "C" drive program files and did find Syswteak, however when I tried to delete it a block came up and stated "Folder in use cannot delete because file is open in another program. Close the folder or file and try again. Any suggestions on how I can find the program that is open?? Very frustrating.

    Have you tried this?

    It's useful for deleting programs that do not show up in the control panel (add/remove programs)

    Thank you both for your replies. I was finally able to remove this Pest, after re-installing ASP, rebooting and using revo uninstaller in safe mode. Thanks again for your help.
