UIHiddenPopUp annoyance

  1jimbo 17:28 10 Mar 2008

Hi, I'm having problems when I shut down (WindowsXP SP2). A message box flashes up with UIHiddenPopUp. It then stops the shutdown for a seconds unless I click the "End Now" button. The only thing I can find in Windows Task Manager remotely like it is UIWatcher, which I believe is part of Ashampoo Uninstaller Platinum 2. Any ideas?

I had this and I can confirm that it is very annoynig. It stopped my computer fromaccessing teh net and I had to shut it down to gtet it to work again.

I got rid of it. It is not a virus, It is a problem with PCGuard whic h is a Virgin branded Virus software made by Authentium and sold all over the world inder different guises and is usually supplied free by you isp.

To get rid of it just switch off the identity theft protection.

Hope this helps

Hi Martin,
Thanks for your response. I forgot about this post (it was a long time ago). I found out about PCGuard causing this and have given up on it due to numerous other problems as well. It's nice to have my suspicions confirmed though and hopefully others affected by PCGuard will read this.
