    I have tried to purchase “Windows Police Pro” and need to remove it from a different computer. When I hit “ctrl-alt-del” it give me the two following messages.

    Windows – Corrupt File
    The file or directory \WINDOWS\Prefetch\TASKMGR.EXE-20256C55.pf is corrupt and unreadable. Please run the Chkdsk utility.

    and

    Task Manager
    Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator.

    What do I need to do to get that computer running?

    Thank you.

  • Kenny says:

    You can’t any kind of programs with this crap because it blocks them all out.
    I can’t even boot into safe mode to do anything.
    These assholes should be put in prison for this.
    I hope they all get cancer and die a long suffering death.

    This is a nasty critter. When I attempted to run the regedit, while the Police Pro was running, it treated regedit.exe as if it were an infected file and would allow it to run. I brought up the Task manager and shut down the process, but it came back up before I had the chance to run the regedit. Thought I’d out smart and try to start the regedit from the cmd prompt. It treated that the same way, as if it was infected. I was able to run the regedit by pulling up the Run box and typing regedit, then shutting down the process and quickly starting the edit. Once the registry editor was open, it was just a matter of hunting down the bad keys and whacking them. After clearing the registry, I restarted in Safe mode and deleted the directory. This may be unrelated or not, but the add / remove software icon in the control panel isn’t working now. Don’t know if this is related to this beasty or not. This is on an XP box.

    Help, I have tried for 5 hours trying to get this spyware off my computer. It bypassed my virus scan and crippled my desktop. I have no idea how to get rid of it. I can\’t even download a spyware program to quarantine it.

  • Robert says:

    Once you use Mac Affee and it catches the trojans associated with this virus, and you clean the virus removal it kills all exe. files. Everytime I tried too pull up a program a empty black exe. box appeared. With Windows XP it also shuts down Add and Remove programs so you can not get in there and remove it. Also if you go in Search and type in Windows Police, it will pull up the files but you can not delete them until the desote.exe is deleted.

    My experience – (Dell Inspiron – Windows XP)

    “Windows” Police PRO has taken over my laptop. – I realized it was bogus immediately – but could not find where it had nested. I locked down my firewall so that nothing else could come through. I used my 2 of my virus protection services and they detected the WBP viruses (multiple) – though did not name the virus’ except to say they were Trojans. …..

    I was then caught in a permanent loop.

    WhenI was able to finally able isolate it through MacAfee it responded with ” …. cannot be removed, nor quarantined …. ”

    I then unfortunately reconnected to the interenet trying to get additional software to remove this – I now cannot do anything – everything I try to open – Norton, MacAfee – Ad-Aware – is immediately blocked by Windows Police PRO .

    I found the WPP folder in my programs folder – it will not allow me to delete or remove it through the control panel ….. message “program is being used and cannot be removed at this time.”

    Computer also displays a large black rectangle in the middle of screen “Your compute is infected – you must start virus scan immediately …” which of course takes one to the constantly open window forcing you to purchase this spyware.

    aarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh.

  • Travis says:

    i used to have windows antivirus now it turned into windows police pro. it wont let me open anything except for doucuments. i cant open add/remove programs or malware remover.i think it may have updated itself to make it so i cant open anything i need to remove it. what do i do?

  • Mat says:

    This has to be THE most annoying malware i’ve ever had to deal with. While the other fake anti-virus programs tend to not allow you to run any anti-virus programs, this one does not let you run ANYTHING, when ever you try to run something it tells you that it is infected.

  • Karen says:

    I have followed all the directions to REMOVE the Police Pro, it will not let me. It tells me “Acces is Denied” (Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use). What else can I do before I lose all my valuable information??

  • pattii says:

  • April says:

    Windows Police pro will not let me get into anything on my computer the only thing that comes up is the police pro asking to buy there protection. What can I do?

  • bob taylor says:

    I successfully deleted police pro but now I can’t access any of my programs – at least not directly. I can’t open firefox from the firefox icon, for example, but if i click on an html document, firefox opens and works just fine.

    How can I repair my other programs so that they’ll open and run like they’re supposed to?
