  1. Believe me, you have a bug and need to pull at least version 3.0 off the shelf until you have it fixed. For the novice users it's beyond a disaster with a total O/S reinstall. For much more advanced users it's a real pain in the ass, but most of it can be fixed with only loosing a mass amount of settings. The loss depends on how much software is installed on the machine. My laptop had 90 - 100 gig of software loaded. The full extent of the damage won't be realized for some time. I have a second laptop with Immunet loaded, but have decided an uninstall would be a disaster waiting to happen. I have been using computers since 1984 and have been hit with pretty bad viruses and the damage Immunet has done to my machines has equaled the worst virus that I've been hit with.
  2. I also had this issue when uninstalling immunet from my Win XP sp2 laptop using windows uninstaller. 1. c:\windows\system32\config\service was corrupted during the uninstall and on boot machine came to the BLUE Screen of Death 2. my user profile was also corrupted. It was a pain to fix this problem, however here's what I did to get my laptop close to where it was before Immunet was installed on my machine. 1: Boot into recovery console. 2: follow instructions in this Microsoft support page http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307545 3: reboot machine # If your user account was corrupted follow the instructions in this Microsoft support page. # If you want your user directory profile in C:\Documents and Settings be the same as your login username follow this instruction and omit the create user instructions in the Microsoft support instructions. 1: Login as administrator 2: rename C:\Documents and Settings\username to something else 3: go to users/groups in computer management and rename the user account to what you just renamed the users directory to. 4: create a new account with the username your old account was named. 5: logout as administrator and login as the new user you just created. 6: logout of the new account and back into the administrator account, the system should have created a new directory in C:\Documents and Settings that is the same name as the new user you created. 7: Follow the instruction on copying files from your old user directory to your new user directory outlined in this Microsoft support page. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/fix-a-corrupted-user-profile This is the steps I used to fix my laptop and hope this helps anyone that ran into the same issue. I'm not writer, so if anybody wants to clean my instruction up so a novice user can understand them, please do.
