Billy, that is really good news! I hope that continues for you. And we are glad we could help.

You mentioned stationed in Italy. Are you in the service?

Ok, so I "uninstalled both IObit and HotSpot Shield" but they are still listed in the Programx86 files and I get an error msg when I try to delete them about the prgms being open or something. I did find and delete the HotSpot Shield helper in the network settings and I did find and delete hssdrv.sys on your system 32's driver folder as described in the article Carl linked.

Can Anyone tell me how to delete both IOBit and HotSpot Shield from the programx86 folder or how to close the programs so it will let me delete it?

thanks guys

Thank you for your service!! I am retarded, er make that retired, Army. Italy is a good duty station.

Try booting in the safe mode and deleting those files. A very good program for thoroughly uninstalling programs is Revo Uninstaller (free). It does better than Windows uninstaller for some of the more tenacious software.

Hey Thanks for your service brother. I am at Camp Darby (Army post). First time stationed on a Army Post and I like our brother service; kinda wish the young troops in the AF had as much disipline as the Army soliders. I am moving houses Wed cuz of a flood in housing area and the CSM on base was here to help us out both with the flood and getting thru the red tape to move. He is great! CSM Rodrigez from Camp Darby.

I will try what you said man and thanks again brother.

Thank you, Billy; it is an honor to have served. Sounds like CSM Rodrigez is doing his job properly - taking care of the troops. Good luck with the move. Moving is always a PITA. Glad you are getting along with the Army guys. We may kid each other a lot between the services; but we all respect anyone who serves in uniform, regardless of the branch. There is, indeed, a strong brotherhood among warriors. I retired as an E9 in 2000 with 33 years of service.

Wow 33 yrs and E-9 thats a hell of an accomplishment SGM! My hats off to you sir.

Unfortunatley I dont think I will go much further I am going in for my second back surgery and I may have a yr left that will put me a 21 as a MSgt. I need this last yr to give me "high 3" for my retirement but after that I need to be fair and move aside so some younger more healthier MSgt can carry the torch.

It has been a great career though.

Totally agree with ya on the brotherhood of soliders. We have so many levels of pride that we just adjust to our surroundings. Pride in the unit, grp/battlion, wing, base/post and the service, then in all services and always in the Flag and country. I have also noticed an additional pride that the civilians have when they support us and our around us in the last 11 yrs. I am glad to see it cuz we do what we do so that they can continue to be what they are and the public outpouring of respect and appreciation really makes a solider feel he made the right decision to serve. It gives him another level of pride and brings the public closer to the forces.

Thank you, much. There is certainly nothing wrong MSgt. You have something going to get there for sure. Congratulations. I really enjoyed my days as E6 and E7. Those were good ranks. Perhaps E6 was the best as squad. I loved working with and directly training my squad and we had a great team. I enjoyed the E9 level because I could make things happen for soldiers. Probably the hardest job I had was that of CAO; but it was rewarding. One can only do that so long and then it is time to move on. I have been on both sides of that duty. I would much rather be a CAO than be on the receiving end!

I am a very active member of the Patriot Guard Riders. I served a year as State Captain for Florida. I get to see and be part of the very best of civilian support and pride for our service members. However, the KIA missions really get to me.
