How do I get rid of Corrupt-EP?

There are many sites found on Google that promise to remove it. But I don't trust them. They could cause me more harm.

But I can't find a McAfee tool to remove it.

All I can find is an $89.98 service. Ouch!

Hi,

Corrupt Ep is something that Mcafee is detecting as an potentially unwanted program.The results are not always true though.

Please run a scan using Micrsoft security essentials

http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

and Malwarebytes free

http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10826546.html

You should be clean.keep me updated.

I used http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/ as you sugested. When it ran, it hung up the computer. I rolled back to before I used that program, but it still hung up my computer until I finally manually removed http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/. Then after doing a McAfee scan, I still had the Corrupt-EP program.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
