GetMp3 removal

  greenkeen 18:48 05 Jun 2004

This program 'GetMp3' was downloaded to my computer. It resists all efforts to remove it. Norton says that it is protected and cannot be removed.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Does it appear in Add&Remove programs? If so start in Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key just before the Windows screen loads then try removing it.

No, it does not appear in add/remove programs. It is only on the desktop but trys to access the internet but is blocked by my firewall.

Have you tried spyware removers such as Spybot S & D or Adaware? click here click here

If it doesn't work with either of them, download HijackThis from click here and scroll down to official downloads.

Unzip the download to its own folder. Then double click hijackthis.exe, click Scan, then tick the boxes that refer to GetMP3, then remember to close all other applications and Explorer or Internet Explorer windows. Then click Fix Checked to remove the offending items. Restart.
