Cant delete 2020 Search

Q: Cant delete 2020 Search

I had some help deleting some problems from my hijack this log but I cant seem to delete the 2020 Search from my Add/Remove programs. Ive tried to delete it on safe mode and on normal mode. Can anyone help.

RELEVANCY SCORE 200
Preferred Solution: Cant delete 2020 Search

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Cant delete 2020 Search

How was it "removed" originally? Have you deleted the programs folder for it? Are there any executables still running?

If you are just seeing it in Add/Remove programs and no place else, that's a registry edit.

You must find the listing for the program under this key (run regedit):

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

And right click on it and delete it. It's possible it might be one of the "clsid" keys (numbered entries). If you don't find a program folder name, you must open each clsid and look in the right pane for it. If you are in doubt, don't delete anything, or select File > Export and save the key first as a reg file. You can restore it by doubleclicking

I am trying to help a person that isn't very computer literate. She has the 2020 search toolbar on her machine and her parasite software is detecting it as a trojan but won't clean it. Is there an online scan or tool that will clean this trojan?
 

A:2020 search toolbar

Download CWShredder:
http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/CWShredder.exe
Run and hit the ->fix tab to fix all found problems

CWShredder takes advantage of security holes in windows so you should install all critical as well as hotfixes available from windows update.
Then repost a fresh Hijack this log .

Download 'Hijack This!' http://www.spychecker.com/program/hijackthis.html and save it to a folder on your desktop.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log, load it in Notepad, and copy its contents here. Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.

You can download that from Microsoft (see below).  That said, before reloading the OS, run an extended hard drive diagnotic (F12 at powerup) to rule out the possibility that the drive is faulty and the cause of the problem.

Greetings & Salmenella
The upper memory slot on the motherboard of my Inspiron One 2020 is beeping known stop , two beep intervals. No matter what memory I put in the beeping continues. It only stops if i have one memory stick in the lower slot.  
I need help on verifying the correct motherboard to purchase or if there a different Dell mother board that I can upgrade to that will fit in the case housing. I dont mind if I have to make cuts or small holes on the back plate, since I already made holes for a tuner card I bought after I purchased the model that did not have the openings for the TV cable. 
I really dont wanna go buy a brand new computer for a bad 4meg memory slot. I have a solid state , the 8 gigs of ram ,and 2 gigs of ramdisk, it runs fast enough that I dont think about buy a new computer. But losing that 4gigs of ram in the bad memory slot. Holy Ding dongs, the hard drive takes for ever to stop making noise, surfing slows down  and compiling and writing visual basic for class takes forever.
Now for the short version.

What is the correct mother board model to replace an Inspiron One 2020 or is there a higher brand model that a mother board will fit my AIO housing and fit  all my computer guts. I have a iCore 5 -2390T cpu.

 Love,
Stu

I was poking around and picked on two links indicating support will run up untill 1/14/20,  hopefully MS will come up with something real nice by then.  
 

A:Win 7 Support good until Jan 14 2020

yep
 
Mainstream (free, Microsoft-provided) support for Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 installed isn't expiring until January 13, 2015. Microsoft will continue to provide security fixes for Windows 7 for free until the end of extended supprt, which is January 14, 2020 -- unless Microsoft ends up extending that support date, as it did with Windows XP.

At one point I was told MSSE was bare min for security, so I purchased AVG security suit and it was so restrictive I uninstalled it. Now my MSSE no longer works AND Win 7 has passed end of life Jan 2020...
I tried to reinstall it before EOS, but had an error of "I already have anti malware installed, please uninstall", so I uninstalled MSSE from control panel and I seen I have "malwarebytes(free ver)" installed too, so I tried to uninstall
and had error "can't find uninstal000.dat file"... And Yes, I can search for it, it's just gone... I did find uninstal000.exe, but no .dat
So, I checked the security status tab under action center and it shows that MSSE is ON and working correctly and windows defender is OFF and I can't start WD, can't turn OFF MSSE...
I used current ver of malwarebytes to scan the computer and it found nothing wrong, I also use OutByte Pc Repair to scan/fix things and I think it does a great job on my other machines...
So I guess my questions are:
-How do I remove the malwarebytes entry off installed programs list? I want to Delete the program folder, I don't think the software works any longer because it won't start (passed trial date maybe)... But it still shows as being installed...
-I want to uninstall MSSE and reinstall it. How can I do that? I've tried taking a copy off a working machine and running setup.exe but the error of already having anti malware installed hangs it up...

Unfortunately that is a case of  WAD/BAD.   Alternatively you can use the Find commands in the Developer Tools or View Source.

Click the "Scan" button when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.

Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.

When I try to do the install with the CD it gets to a certain point and stops telling me that it can't go further because I need to be logged on as administrator. I double checked and I AM logged on as that. I've Googled for answers but can't seem to pinpoint anything.
Have updated my drivers and that didn't seem to help so I'm still stuck.
Does anyone have any solutions for me that might work?
Any help would be most appreciated as it's costing me time and money at this point.
Thanks.

Click the Start button and type UAC into the search box then click User Access Control in the list.

I want to know whether I can use Windows 7 after 14 January 2020 or not.
Is Windows 7 Support System Still Active in 2020?
Any reply will be Grateful.
Thanks and Regards

A:Is Windows 7 Mainstream Support will also end in 2020?

On January 13, 2015, Microsoft will stop mainstream support for Windows 7--which is still an extremely popular operating system. But you'll still be able to use it safely for another five years.
This isn't anything like the run-up to the end of XP support back in April, when everyone in the tech press (including me) warned you about dire consequences if you continued to use XP. That was the end of extended
support, which is far more serious than the end of mere mainstream support.
Once mainstream support ends, there will be no more service packs. Microsoft won't redesign the environment or add new features. Without a special extended agreement, you won't get patches for bugs that don't result
in a security threat.
But if you like Windows 7, you probably don't really need new service packs, and you certainly don't want a redesigned user interface. As long as Microsoft patches vulnerabilities that could become security risks,
Windows 7 remains a safe operating system.
Microsoft doesn't plan to stop fixing security problems in Windows 7 until extended support ends. That's January 14, 2020--five years and a day from the end of mainstream support.
If that doesn't put you at ease, consider this: XP's mainstream support ended in April 2009. It caused no problems whatsoever. Millions continued to use XP for another five years without people like me warning
them of dire consequences. Windows 7 won't be any different.
Vista mainstream support ended on April 10, 2012. Exte... Read more
