Speccy misreporting current antivirus software

Recommended Posts

In the Operating System section, Speccy is reporing a previously-installed antivirus software package that was fully uninstalled using Revo Uninstaller, instead of the currently-installed antivirus software package. Why? How to correct?

fully uninstalled using Revo Uninstaller

Obviously it was only partially uninstalled.

 

N.B.

If an Antivirus can be uninstalled by Revo it could also be disabled by malware.

Dr Ben what operating system are you running?

 

Which anti-virus is saying it is still installed?

 

Did you run the anti-virus own uninstaller?

did speccy ever fix the earlier "wrong anti-virus" issue I can't remember. This may be still a symptom of that.

Start/Run/Regedit & press enter key.

 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software

 

Both locations may contain references to the uninstalled anti-virus.

Look for the name of the program under both software caches.

 

Current User = you

Local Machine = all users
