Help with (management) uninstallation of AutoIT

Recommended Posts

Deploytheweb

Hello,

I am looking for your help with AutoIT.

Description of the problem.

  • One of my clients has some issues with his PC and I went to solve them. One of them was uninstalling of the free version of AVG Internet Security and installing the paid version. As soon as I try to uninstall any program AutoIT shuts down the computer.
  • Also if I try to modify the Folder options it does not happen at all – modification is not possible. I am trying to do all these under the administrator account.
  • I am not able to uninstall AutoIT, because cannot see it anywhere in the control panel, start menu or elsewhere.
  • The operating system is Windows XP Professional SP3.
  • I have also tried to enter into safe mode, but any normal keys like F8 do not present such opportunities during reboot.
  • The computer is part of a network with other two computers, but there is no server. I suspect that there are some scripts running to rule the access policies between the three computers.

It is really frustrating and I will appreciate your help. Obviously, there is a special set up or sript sequence, which I am not aware of. My target is to actually uninstall AutoIT if it possible at all.

Thank you in advance for any comments.

For sure this is not by itself an Autoit related problem. Maybe there's some malicious script running coded in autoit... Do an analysis of the programs started Autoruns for Windows v10.01

Thank you for your comments. Yes, probably there is something maliciouse executing in the background.

Actually, I have seen on the shut down message label AutoIT - this is how I know. I am not sure if it is genuine though.
