  Vin Petrol 15:46 16 Dec 2005


I was in a msn convosation and i clicked on the "MSN Block Checker"...ooops!!. Ive had it a while now, and my comp is so slow, its now got to the point where im waiting for nearly 5mins just to get on line even with broadband!!.

Ive tried removing the program but its still coming up in msn convosations. Anybody on here that can help me out please.

Thanks, Martin

blockchecker is crapware... but luckily there is a little something that Atribune made that can help you out.

Please download Blockrem © Atribune from click here
Unzip it to its own folder on your desktop.

Boot your computer to safe mode by rebooting and tapping the F8 button repeatedly until it brings up a boot menu.

From that menu, select Safe Mode by using the arrow keys to highlight it then pressing enter.
Once in safe mode open the Blockrem folder on your desktop and double-click
blockrem.bat (this is the file with the gear icon) to run it.

Once it is running please follow the onscreen instructions.
Reboot back into normal mode.

If you are still having problems after that then I suggest you go click here and post a hijack log in the malware removal forum
