    POWERSCAN 1.1 Removal
    =====================
    Begin by backing up your registry and your system, and/or setting a Restore Point,
    to prevent trouble if you make a mistake.

    KILL these running processes with Task Manager:
    cleanup.exe
    ignorelist.exe
    patchnow.exe
    productsupport.exe
    programfilesdir+\power scan\powerscan.exe
    sysrestore.exe

    REMOVE these registry items (if present) with RegEdit:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\powerscan
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\powerscan\{4e7bd74f-2b8d-469e-dbfc-ed1ca787ad2d}
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\powerscan\account_id
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run\power scan
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\powerscan
    Now reboot the machine immediately.

    REMOVE these files (if present) with Windows Explorer:
    cleanup.exe
    ignorelist.exe
    patchnow.exe
    pc powerscan - live update.lnk
    pc powerscan.lnk
    power scan.lnk
    productsupport.exe
    programfilesdir+\power scan\powerscan.exe
    sysrestore.exe

    REMOVE this directory (if present) with Windows Explorer:
    programfilesdir+\power scan

    After that I think it may be time to go to this post here, and follow the instructions EXACTLY.

    Then see How to post your Hijackthis log-files.

    Don't be so quick to fix a problem with a reformat, unless that is ultimetly what you want to do. There is often a solution to fix your current problem without having to start over and possibly lose your data. But if you're happy with it then no worries.
