Another fun-tastic little virus here I’ve been dealing with from some of my clients. Remove desktop access vuupc is a dangerous one because sometimes it comes with a phone call with someone asking you to give them access to your pc remotely. Be careful of these phone calls!
The Remote Desktop Access (VuuPc) normally comes bundled with free programs that can be downloaded, and is usually unwanted. The user is not aware of this ‘tag-along’ as it is not disclosed with the software they are actually wanting. This adware program gets installed as the free software is downloaded onto the computer.
When installed, VuuPc adds a Window Service that will run continuously in the background of your system. Always check what you agree to when selecting a free download program, and deselect or opt out if there is anything optional or questionable as to what you were looking for.
To remove the Remote Desktop Access (VuuPc) and other adware programs that have installed in error, you will need to follow these steps. It is important to do the steps in order.
You will need to identify which program is the malicious one.
On the Windows Vista, XP or 7 start by clicking on the Start button, and move to the Control Panel.
On the Windows 8 you drag the mouse to the right edge and do a Search for the Control Panel. From the Control Panel, click on the Uninstall a Program choice under the Programs options. Scroll through the list to see all the programs currently installed on your computer. When you find the Remote Desktop Access, click to highlight it, and then click on Uninstall.
Step 2: The AdwCleaner utility will perform a scan on your web browser and computer to ensure that VuuPC along with all its extentions has been deleted. To download this utility, you can go to: http://toolslib.net/downloads/finish/1/ for a free download. Once downloaded, close all programs running on your computer and then double-click on the AdwCleaner icon. If you see a window pop up asking about this program, allow it to install. When the program opens, click on Scan. The AdwCleaner will now begin to search for the VuuPc malicious files that may be on your computer. When it identifies it, you can then click on Clean to remove it. Adwcleaner will now check if you want to Save Any Open Files Or Documents? You can click to do this and then on the OK button. Computer will need to reboot to save these changes.
An anti-malware program that can run alongside an antivirus software is Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free. This program uses industry leading technology and can remove all malware, worms, Trojans, rootkits, spyware, dialers and more. This download is free and runs much the same as AdwCleaner. You can go the website, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Download and follow the prompts to download.
Using one of these anti-malware programs (there are others you can choose from) you should have successfully removed the Remote Desktop Access (VuuPc) from your computer.
