  1. I need some newbie help with removing mssearchnet.exe and nvctrl.exe

    i read this thread http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic36910.html

    but couldn't get it to work

    basically i try restarting my computer in safe mode and deleting all the hp....tmps and the mssearch and nvctrl like it says from my windows/system32 folder

    then i go to run regedit and delete mssearch from
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\Run

    i do all this but it still comes back :(

    any help is appreciated

    Go HERE and follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post a fresh HJT log, only after doing the above.

    If you don`t follow the instructions exactly, I`m afraid I can`t help you.

    If you`re finding it too complicated, then the only other thing you can do is reformat and reinstall.

    Regards Howard :)

    does reformatting get rid of everything on my computer?
