Registry Cleaner Pro Removal – How To Get Rid Of This Virus Completely

Registry Cleaner Pro is a fake antivirus product that infects your computer and tries to sell you the full version of this fake program. In order to put the pressure on you to buy it, Registry Cleaner Pro prohibits you from running your programs and blocks access to almost all websites. It does however allow access to its own sales pages, example checkeran.com. A typical symptom of this infection is that whenever you try to run any program, you receive a warning message that the application cannot be executed and that the file you are trying to run is infected. Below are two error messages associated with Registry Cleaner Pro:

* Internet Explorer Warning – visiting this web site may harm your computer!
* Application cannot be executed. The file wuauclt.exe is infected. Do you want to activate your antivirus now?

Since Registry Cleaner Pro prohibits you from running programs, the key to removing it is to work around this blocking ability. Here is how:

1. Right-click on your Start button, choose Explore. Navigate to your Temp folder. The Temp folder is usually located at C:Documents and Settings{username}Local SettingsTemp (for Windows XP) and at C:Users{username}AppDataLocalTemp (for Windows Vista / 7).
2. Locate a randomly named folder in the Temp folder. Note that this folder’s name will be made up for random characters, all small case. Double click this folder to open it. To be sure you have the right folder, this folder will only contain one randomly named file and nothing else.
3. Right-click the file from the above step and choose delete. This should enable you to run your programs once again (after restart).
4. Restart your computer and update your existing antivirus. Run a full system scan to remove Registry Cleaner Pro.

If your antivirus cannot or if you have any problems with the above steps, you can download this remover which is able to work around the infection and remove it.
