Remove Nginx?

Apr 2, 2008

I run my laptop at work and the big LAN guys monitor various things that could be suspect. Today I was told that nginx is running on my laptop's IP, occasionally spiking, and making them nervous. I run Windows Vista Home addition and I don't need a server on it. I have been reading that nginx is a web servrer, like apache. Which is all fine and good but I don't know how it got on my laptop, and I don't know how to get it off. Perhaps it installed with some other application? My work thinks it may be spam, adware, malware, or otherwise malicious. If anyone knows how I can remove this please let me know. I've spent the last couple hours on google and all I can find about nginx is that it's a web and mail server, I can't find what apps might use it, and how I can remove it.

Add/Remove In Vista Does Not Remove All The Software

May 12, 2008

I have experienced two instances were Add/Remove in Vista does not remove all the software, so that comprehensive installation of similar software is not possible. The first concerned a Scanner, where Add/Remove would not remove all the software, so that installation of the new Scanner is not possible, until a procedure recommended by the Scanner's makers involving modifications to the Registry is carried out, which I could not possibly do myself, so it means hiring a Professional to do the job!

The second concerns Spellex. Here again the old version has not been removed, so that installation of the latest version is not fully carried out, making the software useless. How can Microsoft produce Windows where such problems occur? What is the experience of others in case this is a fault with my computer?

How To Remove Spyware?

Apr 6, 2009

I have a Vista computer with the following Antivirus / spyware removal programs

- Eset NOD32 v2.7
- Spy bot search and destry
- SuperAntispyware
- Ad aware
- Windows defender

All the software is updated with the latest "definitions"

2 firewalls (1 windows firewall, 1.with the router)

Do I need more software like that to be safe?


I think this is too much software installed to just take care of virus and spyware threats. For it seems like virus is not soo big problem any more. Soo I am wondering isnt it possible to for Microsoft to make something "supersmart" to get rid of spy ware??

USB Cannot Safely Remove It Because It Is In Use

Apr 15, 2009

[I am running Vista Home Premium 64 bit]

I plugged in my Toshiba USB hard drive when I first got my computer about a week ago, to transfer programs and files to the new computer.

Now, for the past several days I have tried to remove it and I keep getting the message, "cannot safely remove it because it is in use"!

It is NOT in use as far as I know. In fact today I started my computer and did not even access the drive at all yet I get the same error from "Safely Remove Hardware".

I have turned indexing off on the drive, on both partitions.

MS sent me a "Hotfix" via email but when I went to install it there were all kinds of warnings with it, basically telling me "use this at your own risk, we are not vouching for this being reliable!" So I was rather afraid to do it.

Can Not Remove DdcDwwwW.dll

Apr 19, 2008

i can get to remove ddcDwwwW.dll wich in turn contacts some web server and downloads sevral other virus files. Tryied to remove it before internet was turn on but no luck. Got some files wich it downloads as soon as internet is there, but simply cant remove that host file. It slows down internet speed by 98% so online scanners cant reach it in time before it activated another entry for it.

And same with the virus program, since it is in the temp dir i tryied to only scan that dir but same result. When the scan was done after 5 sec for temp dir the file had made 112 new entrys linked to the file so it could not be removed. Every time u tries to simply delete it it makes some other crappy entry and resetts.. Virus program ref to utlrexue.dll and lvlpdtev.dll

Cannot Remove Fonts

Nov 27, 2008

I cannot remove a file called tahoma. I guess this is the font that Vista uses? I recently installed Left 4 Dead and later uninstalled it. There was one folder named fonts that didn't got deleted. It contained fonts like arial, verdana and tahoma. I managed to delete all of them in safe mode except tahoma.

I know that you shouldn't delete fonts that the system is using but there is something wierd because it's not in my "fonts folder" from the controlpanel. And the fonts that I deleted succefully (verdana and arial etc.) is still in that folder, tahoma is also there so that's why I'm guessing that I could delete that the tahoma font in my left 4 dead folder without it causing my system any problems.

How To Remove From A Partition?

Mar 24, 2008

To make sure Vista would work with all my hardware and programs, I created a second partition on my XP machine and installed Vista on there (Vista Home Premium). All my hardware and my important programs worked so I thought I'd bite the bullet and upgrade my XP installation on the first partition. That also worked OK (apart from losing all my Music and Videos which I am restoring from backup, at present) and I have used EasyBCD to remove the entry for the copy of Vista on my second partition but I can't seem to delete all the directories and files that are on there. It says I don't have permission to many of them. I also keep Norton Ghost backups on that partition so I don't really want to format it. As I am logged on as an Administrator, why don't I have access to everything? What can I do to allow myself to delete all the Windows files and directories?

Can't Remove Another Program

Aug 22, 2009

When I try to remove Drive F at the Computer window, or from the taskbar, it says "can't remove, in use by another program". This became an issue after I ran Windows Backup for the first time. Earlier backup was the Acer version. Acer's version backs up C partition and records on D. Windows backed up C and D and recorded on external drive F. How do I determine which program is preventing me from safely removing Drive F? Should I delete the Windows backup and use Acer's backup program exclusively? How do I delete the Windows backup?

Reinstall IE7 To Remove Adware?

Mar 23, 2008

My daughter managed to download some malware onto her computer (she doesn't know how she did it). The various anti-virus, firewall, and anti-malware (including Defender, Spybot, ZoneAlarm Pro and AdAware) do not catch this malware. The malware opens Internet Explorer windows with ads. Investigating the computer with Sypbot and others, the malware seems to be "1 mags 16 more" and "BEND BOLT". I've disabled these programs with Spybot, but of course have no way to uninstall these programs.

Unfortunately, a side-effect is that this has prevented IE from running at all. When attempting to start IE7, nothing happens (no error message; it just doesn't start). Would it help to uninstall IE7 and then reinstall it from scratch? If so, how do I go about it (and where do I find the IE7 download -- I don't seem to be able to find it on the Microsoft website)? I'd like to avoid a full hard drive reformat, if possible.
