i scanned on the guest account and i can't get rid of these. please help. they keep coming back.
oh and they aren't installed on the compuer i checked the find file thing and the add remove thing not there so i'm confused FP maybe.
What program are u scanning with?
aol anti spyware the new edition.
Well i don't use that app. sooooo.....
Even though u said that it is not showing up in add and remove programs u might want to read through this thread pertaining to kazaa removal and see if any of it applies,
There's a little tool there that removes Kazaa and the bundled software that comes with it. If u do use it be sure to read thoroughly before as it seems it can break your internet connection.
eeks i'm going with spyware doctor then i don't want to kill my internet thanks for the help though
There's an LSP fix in this thread(at the bottom),
in case there is a problem with your internet connection after using Kazaabegone. U might want to check if any of that bundled software mentioned is showing up in your add and remove programs.
well spyware doctor didn't find anything i hope it was a false positive
If I'm not mistaken, isn't AOL Antispyware, Aluria's Spyware Eliminator? ..if so, if you scan with AOL/Aluria's scanner, it'll find the spyware 'WebP2P' which is caused by Kazaa. You unfortunately cannnot delete it as Kazaa needs it. Is this your issue?
YES thats it
Hi cheater87, as your issue relates to removal of a program, I have moved your thread into this forum where it should receive better attention.
Like I stated before, if you have Kazaa installed on your system, there is no way to delete it as it will keep adding itself into your registry everytime you run Kazaa..no matter if you clean/delete it with AOL/Aluria's scanner. Ad-Aware, Spy Sweeper, and Spyware Doctor don't seem to pick this up either because its flaged as a false or it simply doesn't consider it spyware.
Anyways, WebP2P is usually found in your registry under..
the thing is its not on the add remove list so i'm confused
Its not a software-type spyware, so that's why you don't see it in your Add/Remove Programs List. WebP2P adds a key to your registry (..probably one of the three I listed in my previous post) that allows Kazaa to run. I wouldn't worry to much about it, and there is nothing you can do if you have Kazaa installed. Just add the 'WebP2P' spyware to the ignore list..
its not installed to my knowlage
Do you use Shareaza? That will always insert those registry keys on startup, but it's not a problem, so don't worry about it.
WebP2P adds itself with one or all of the registry keys I had posted before if you have Shareaza, Kazaa, or Limewire installed..
try using KazaaBegone (scroll down), but also make sure u have lspfix downloaded beforehand.
LimeWire Pro always adds these keys only after I run this P2P program
