In Explorer find App Data folder and from both roaming and local directories delete hotfix.exe. http://www.myantispyware.com/2010/10/18/how-to-remove-thinkpoint-uninstall-instructions/ thanks again. Uncheck Allow Unprotected Startup. However I cannot open Windows Explorer.

You will then be able to proceed with the rest of the guide. When your computer reboots you will be presented with the ThinkPoint start screen before your normal Windows desktop is shown.

Go to that account. Closing hotfix with the task manager is the only thing that works so far. I hadn't downloaded anything from anywhere, so I have no idea how I got this. navigate here If you have already purchased it then you should contact your credit card company and dispute the charges.

About the blogThis blog provides reliable information about the latest computer security threats including spyware, adware, browser hijackers, Trojans and other malicious software. After that, just continue on and download the Malware link and you should be set. This is really confusing me.

Right click on each one and delete them. I looked in my documents and don't see anything. I will definitely be looking into purchasing your products!!!

never happened to me before. To make sure it’s working though search the hotfix.exe files again a few minutes later the same way you found them. Open My Computer, then go to the C drive. 6.

I was playing a Disney game with my nephew when think point came up. Had taken over my desktop. This should allow you to see your desktop screen in the background. Q: thank u very much!!
