How do I get rid of Twain-Tech?

I have the registered version of Pest Patrol and it keeps finding the following trojan Twain-Tech although it also says on the Pest Patrol screen that it is adware.
If it is adware I am not to bothered about it but if it is a trojan I don't like the sound of that.


I run Pest Patrol and after deleting it it ALWAYS keeps coming back at the next reboot.
I have been to Pest Patrol's information page at click here
but the manual removal instructions look VERY long winded.
Is it much of a risk leaving this on my PC?

The manual removal instructions don't look quite so complex as the ones posted on the Pest Patrol site!
I will try this out now and thanks.

That could explain why Internet Explorer was slowing down as on the Pest Patrol site it states that it 'may slow down IE'
Sorted.
Thanks VoG™

I do not have a high opinion of Pest Patrol. Glad you are sorted, apart from the twitchy finger ;o)

What happened was I had a JRun server error after patiently waiting for around 3 minutes (if you notice the first reply was sent at 22.16 which timed out and then I pressed refresh and that's when the second post arrived at 22.19) so I presses refresh and thats why I had a double post!
Thanks again VoG™

Last time I bother you tonight!
Why do you not have much regard for Pest Patrol?
Is there a reason?
Just curious!

It was a carefully worded statement. I'm sure you will understand.

No probs!
