Home Antivirus 2010

Recommended Posts

I don't mean to hijack this post, but I'm having the exact problem after contracting Home Antivirus 2010. Most of the scans get aborted before completing. Then, you cannot start them again because windows won't let you have access. This is the same for secedit and sfc. I noticed all local security polices are gone which is probably part of the problem. I was hoping to run secedit to restore default but it gets blocked. From what programs I could get to run, some from a second boot partition, I found several viruses and finally got all of the files removed. but still have the no access problem plus my searches are still hijacked.

I tried running DDS and has the same problem, the prompt never does display. If I could figure out what is causing secedit not to run, I could probably get this thing figured out. I'm still a little stumped why my searches are being redirected. There still has to be something undetected doing that. I did the manual unistall of 2010 so I know I have all of those files deleted.

I would normally just do a system restore but those got deleted when I got Home Antivirus 2010. I waited too long to recover them so they were corrupt.
