If he is running XP, you could try Ewido click here You can download the up to date signature database click here as he won't be able to update on line.

Why can't you copy A² to CD?

  sunny staines 08:36 09 Dec 2005

to run the program you need to be connected to the internet to log in. So I presumed there was no point in copying over to the CD.

If I am wrong please advise me.

If you update on your own computer, then copy to CD it should run. I have just disconnected from the net and run mine with no trouble. Anyway give it a try.

I found these instructions for Manual Removal.

4. To delete the value from the registry
Important: Symantec strongly recommends that you back up the registry before making any changes to it. Incorrect changes to the registry can result in permanent data loss or corrupted files. Modify the specified subkeys only. For instructions refer to the document: How to make a backup of the Windows registry.

Click Start > Run.
Type regedit
Click OK.

Note: If the registry editor fails to open the threat may have modified the registry to prevent access to the registry editor. Security Response has developed a tool to resolve this problem. Download and run this tool, and then continue with the removal.

Navigate to the subkey:


In the right pane, delete the value:

"intell32.exe" = "%System%\intell32.exe"

Navigate to and delete the following subkeys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Internet Update

Navigate to the subkey:


In the right pane, reset the value:

"NoActiveDesktopChanges" = "1"

Navigate to the subkey:


In the right pane, reset the values:

"NoDispBackgroundPage" = "1"
"NoDispAppearancePage" = "1"

Navigate to the subkey:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

In the right pane, reset the values:

"Wallpaperstyle" = "0"
"Wallpaper" = "%SystemRoot%\%System%\wppp.html"

Exit the Registry Editor.
