Pc Analyzer/Pc Tune Up

Postby cuxiland » Fri Nov 12, 2010 1:52 pm

Having run the one time application of PC Analyzer/Pc Tune Up I find that the Microsoft Autoplay has been turned off.
Nothing will autoplay.
How do I undo that which I probably inadvertently did and get Autoplay re enabled?
I have tried many options without any success

Which version of Windows are you running?

Well you might want to try a Microsoft forum, because Autoplay is a Windows feature and we only do AVG support here. Basically you just need to re-enable it.

I really wish I had seen this forum before I bought 25 licenses. If I cannot get rid of this ad-ware I am going to have to eat subscriptions to Mcafee or Norton. I have quite a few customers coming up for renewal. No way am I going to make this mistake again.

OK, Here is how you get rid of PC anal – yzer within AVG. 1st make sure that you have (Crap Cleaner) CCleaner installed first. CCleaner is a freeware program and can be found quite easily by just googling "CCleaner". After it is installed, Go to the "Programs/AVG" file. There you will see a file named "pctools". Delete the file named "Pctools". Next, open CCleaner and at the left of the main window, you will see "Registry". Perform the registry scan and clean up the registry. I have never had any problems with the registry cleaner in CCleaner so I just cleaned my entire registry. If you are unsure about this, then be sure to make a backup of your registry in case you need to restore it or you can go through the scanned item results found during your registry scan and find the entries pertaining to Pc tools or PC analyzer and delete those entries. As for me, I did a registry cleanup before I deleted the “Pctools” file. That way I could actually se what entries were installed on my hard drive that pertained to PC Analyzer. I think, I found a total of 3 or 4 entries, at the most.

As far as getting rid of the context menu entry for AVG that is running in the background which is found at the right side of the taskbar, that I don’t know how to do. Hopefully, there is someone here that knows how to edit those context menus. I do know that if you attempt to open PC analyzer from the context menu entry, the AVG interface still opens. Except, now it displays “ Unable to initiate PC Analyzer component”. That is of course, because it is no longer on your hard drive. I hope this will help.

No more PC anal-yzer !!
