    Please delete your PreVX 2 folder in \Program Files\ after uninstalling it. The uninstall process wasn't clean on my machine.

    I deleted PreVX 2 sometime ago and when I happened to run ProcExp, I found still pxagent, a component of PreVX 2 still running as a service!

    This was the dirtiest uninstall I've ever seen. I used RegSeeker to search out things to remove, and there were a lot of them.

    About 60 reg keys or values contained the string "prevx." I deleted all of them. Plus, what must have been almost the entire contents of the install folder remained. I deleted the folder. I'd like to see the company supply a list of things to remove, in the absence of a competent uninstaller.

    I used Ccleaner to remove the remnants of Prevx one then I re-installed Prevx 2 ... then uninsalled Prevx 2 again ... then re-installed 2 again... but I noticed one of the folder was still there whenever I uninstalled Prevx 2 ...

    My patient is waring thin now since I cannot update it for whatever reason. I email them but to no avail.

    I could update Prevx 1 but not 2.

    Let's see ... hmmm ...

    :mad:

    Consider deleting pxfsf.sys on \windows\system32\drivers as well when u r uninstalling PreVx 2.

    A check shows that it is a PreVx 2 driver...

    Of course please do a backup or rar it before deleting.
