VX2 Cleaner - Lavasoft
What does this program do?
VX2 is one of the most problematic applications to remove from your computer. While Ad-Aware SE effectively deals with most VX2 variants, there are a few that none of today's available anti-spyware applications can detect or remove. VX2 Cleaner v1.03 is a stand-alone removal tool for menacing VX2 applications.
Who should use this program?
Anyone that suspects that they are infected with VX2 variants should use this program.
How does it work?
- Close Ad-Aware SE if it is currently open.
- Download VX2 Cleaner. After installation, re-start Ad-Aware SE before running the VX2 Cleaner.
Note: If you have already attempted to run Ad-Aware SE to remove VX2, you may need to run the VX2 Cleaner several times to remove possible VX2 remains. If you have already attempted to remove VX2 with Ad-Aware SE, follow these steps:
- Before running the VX2 Cleaner, close all anti-virus or anti-spyware applications.
- Run the VX2 Cleaner. If your computer is infected with VX2, a dialog box saying "New VX2 variant found" or "VX2 variant 1 found" will appear.
- Select "Clean" and a dialog box saying "The first phase is complete. Please reboot and perform a Smart Scan." will appear. After saving your work, reboot your system manually.
- Repeat this until the VX2 Cleaner reports "System clean". Select "Close" to exit.
- Run Ad-Aware SE one more time and scan your computer to make sure all VX2 variants have been found and removed.
