Help to remove PrivitizeVPN.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm not sure if this is the right place but I associate "security" with virus/spyware, and it is a network problem I guess.

I cannot for the life of me get rid of this. I'm not even sure where it came from. Google says it comes from thepiratebay, but I haven't downloaded anything from there in a long long time. I've deleted every registry entry searching for "privitize". I've removed it with the control panel, I've ran an updated malewarebyes, I've ran MSE, but didn't detect anything. Spyware removal didn't work. I usually don't have problem deleting this stuff, but this thing is tricky. I've gotten rid of the browser part, but it shows up in my network connections.

network connections are just a windows setting..right click on it and click delete..

if that doesnt work, go to your device manager, and find it there under network adapters-> right click -> uninstall..

its not really "installed" at this point its just a driver for the network interface

Thanks. #hadnoidea

It seems you are correct, deleting it from network connections seem to have gotten rid of all traces. I checked my download history and couldn't find anything that it would have been associated with, then I ran a file scan searching for the keyword "privitize" and low and behold it was attached to a .exe named Mass Effect. It's a no-cd patch, guess I should just use discs.

I had the same problem too.
Except i got rid of the network connections part first, and have absolutely NO IDEA on how to remove the browser part.
Help please
