Windows 7: Windows 7 Build 7601 This copy of Windows is not genuine - help please

16 Oct 2012   #101

Windows 7 Home Premium x32. 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601
 
 

I have been doing quite well, the AVG Secure Search files along with the registry files have all been removed.
The only problem is I cannot remove C:\Windows\ProgramData\AVG. I then realised that the AVG file was locked (padlock) so I unlocked the file. I have tried using REVO to remove the whole file, the sub files etc but it cannot locate them?
These are views of the files as I am not sure where to go from here:

run the following commands in an Elevated Command Prompt window

TAKEOWN /F "c:\Program Files\AVG" /A /R
ICACLS "C:\Program Files\AVG" /grant Administrators:(F) /T

Close the Command Prompt window

Open Windows Explorer
right-click on the AVG entry
Select Properties

Clear the 'blob' form the 'Read-only' box, and click Apply
Accept the default when the warning comes up - to apply to all files and folders.
when complete, OK out

Then try Revo again :)_

Unfortunately I have a problem with the commands Elevated Command Prompt as below.
I did try clearing the 'blob' on AVG but a window appears with 'Access denied, you need administrators permission'.

No problem - sounds like they may be in the (x86) folder....

Some forward progress but still some problems. Elevated Command Prompts worked, see list, I then cleared the blob in AVG, continues on access denied, OK'd the changes to folder etc, and the OK's the AVG properties (blob had gone). Opened AVG properties again and the blob has returned?

Sorry - I should have said - the blob is the default state for folders, since they cannot be made read-only (only the content can)

Simply try Revo again
