    I downloaded Immunet Protect and then decided it was unnecessary as I've Systemsuite Utility programme installed, so I uninstalled it in the normal manner.

    While installing the new version of Systemsuite, (11), I noticed that I still had some Immunet files, although the programme itself wasn't there. I did a file search and tried to delete all Immunet files that were detected, by highlighting and pressing delete and if that didn't work, by using a 'File Unlocker.

    With the new version of Systemsuite there are compatibility problems. The computer continually keeps locking up. CTR ALT Delete doesn't work, and I must power it off and restart. The 'locking up' occurs after a few minutes. It doesn't matter what programme is running.

    I decided to reinstall Immunet Protect and then uninstall it using Revo Uninstall. Unfortunately the programme would not install correctly and while installing I kept getting the following -

    Error opening file for writing
    C Program Files etc.........2.0.17\driver\ip\immunet protect.cat
    " is\ " self protect.cat
    .inf
    . sys
    \uninstall.exe
    \driver\ip\immunet protect.cat
    .inf
    . cat

    If I ignore the above and install what is possible, when I uninstall again using Revo I still have the following files -

    Immunet Protect.EXE, Immunet Protect.sys, Immunet Protect Self protect.sys, Immunet Protect.cat, Immunet Protect.inf, Immunet Protect.sys, Immunet Protect self protect.cat, Immunet Protect.self protect.inf, ImmunetProtectself protect.sys

    The above files are still on my computer.

    I've tried a system restore but that doesn't solve the problem.

    How can I delete all Immunet Protect files?

    Thanks

    After using Revo Uninstaller you are left with those files too?
