advchk.exe - Useless

advchk.exe

Manual removal instructions:

advchk.exe
This program warns you when you install a new version of a Norton product and you didn't uninstall all previous versions.
But in some cases it is incorrect, for example:
when you install Norton SystemWorks (NSW), you see the message "A previous version of Norton SystemWorks was detected. You must uninstall the old version before installing the new one" or a similar message. After you uninstall the previous version of NSW and start to install NSW, you see the same message.
The installation does not proceed.
In this case you must delete following key from the system registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\Advchk.exe

Remove advchk.exe now!

Jeff's Story:

My PC had gotten a bad rootkit that my ISP antivirus software (powered by McAfee) could not detect, nor could fix.

I sought a solution on the Internet and discovered your product and tried out the trial of UnHackMe.

You quickly found the rootkit and SAVED my PC!

I haven't had any problems since, and I'm extremely grateful.
