Windows 7: wssetup.exe

Hi all, Just registered for this forum.......5 mins ago....and saw the wssetup.exe problem a lot of people are having.

I get the same problem when I switch on and the system boots up.......5 mins later up pops the Perion Network Ltd box etc.

last night my son had a go at deleting a program from the program listing list, and it appeared to work, but this morning the thing is back again.

I'm going to try the solution posted in post #8 by Trexmark.

I'll post when I give it a go.
Ian.

Hi all, back again.......well I went to control panel and clicked on "programs and features" and deleted the Sweet packages (2 off) of whatever they "were" called previously, having found out they were connected to Perion Network Ltd etc...........so switched off and rebooted and now it appears there is no more Wssetup.ex request to make changes to this computer.

When the "remove this program" and "uninstall" functions were completed I got a box saying "sorry to see you go " etc, so hopefuly this is a fix.

Thanks all for your help.....being a driver and completely ignorant of what happens under the bonnet computer wise.

Hi Layback, I think it's working OK, at least when I switched off and back on the Perion thing was absent.

Thanks for the help.

Your very welcome. Remember that most things like what you had normally come with something else you downloaded. So a close eye on your downloads should help.
Happy computing.

I was able to track wssetup.exe to C:\Users\Appdata\Local\Temp, but when I deleted it, it simply reinstalled to the same folder next start-up. I had SweetIM at one time but had uninstalled it. When I searched my programs however there was still an updater associated with SweetIM. I uninstalled that as well and the wssetup.exe then stopped installing and asking permission to run.

have so far hit cancel and not allowed the process, god knows where it came from. Done the usual searches which some sites say its "incredimail" notoriously difficult to remove, some say its as safe as houses and some say its a threat tho dont elaborate.
Have run antimalwarebytes and superantispyware and they find nothing. Have run msconfig and under Boot tab and startup tab there is no sign of it, so you can see my problem.
guessing someone will know about this and provide a solution.
grateful for any reply

Hi, I had 2 files in my programs list with the name Sweet as part of it, so as I found that these are part of the Perion thingy, I removed them by going into my Control Panel and doing a remove program exercise on the 2 programs that had Sweet in the title.......so far (3 days) nothing has come out of the woodwork.

hi . I followed "Trexmark'
"I've found the solution (at least on my computer).
typed MSCONFIG in run box at the startup menu, than under the Automatic Startup page checked out the 'Sweet Packs Update Manager' and now my computer starts normally. So I think this program was the agressiive try from Sweet Pack to be installed on my PC. Good luck!"
This worked for me too. Thanks Trexmark
