    I bought the program to run the software, and now the Total Security won't let Spy Hunter run. windows are freezing and I can't do anything on my computer. TS is using it's firewall to block Spy Hunter...

    I got infected by this one. Can't launch Task Manager, can't launch Add/Remove Program.
    Can't exit, can't proceed, can't boot with Safe Mode either.

  • Ginger Alford says:

    I downloaded Total Security (unfortunately!) and am trying to get Spy Hunter Malware Scanner but when I try to install it it gives an error "cannot prepare for resuming". I have tried this several times and keep getting the same error message.

    When I try to uninstall Total Securtity I get a message that says there is something built in that won't let me uninstall it.

    I don't feel comfortable going thru the steps listed here but would like to take the SpyHunter's Malware Scanner route but I can't get it to install.

    When I removed Total Security for a client today, the winsource.dll was not there. Instead the DLL file was named iehelpmod.dll.
