  1. Hello, for the first step, when I go into my control panel and highlight the IicooConverter than click uninstall it says: “You do not have sufficient access to uninstall IIcooCOnveroteR” I’m the admin account on my computer as well and I do not know who this administrator is they are talking about.

    I went ahead and did steps 2 and 3 anyways and it got away a bunch of garbage on my computer so I really thank you for that but just the Iicooconverter won’t go away. (I even disabled it with the advent browser but it still won’t go away from the control panel and is still harassing my internet experience.

    Looking at Chrome Extension, IIcooCOnveroteR is not active.

    If there is any way I am able to uninstall it from the control panel that would be great (or even just know who the administrator is that I would need to contact). My laptop is an Asus and I’m using Windows 8.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. About the Control Panel uninstall issue, you must login with account that has Administrative privilege.

    Please try this new guide to remove IIcooCOnveroteR from Google Chrome.

    IIcoConverter 2.2 has injected code into Chrome browser and User Profile is generally affected. Thus, deleting the current user profile prevents IIcoConverter 2.2 from loading. Proceed with the following steps:

    1. Open Google Chrome browser and type chrome://settings/ on the address bar. Alternatively, please navigate to settings page through Customized and control Google Chrome (3 horizontal bar icon on upper left of browser).
    2. Go to Users area and click on Delete this user.


    3. Next, confirmation will pop-up if you really want to delete the current user. Please click Delete to remove the infected User Profile.


    4. Restart Google Chrome to have a new User Profile.
    5. Proceed with the removal of malicious files and other items on the computer that is linked to IIcoConverter 2.2.

  3. I tried that and it let me removed it from my control panel but nothing came up when I did the adware scan. When I re-opened Chrome it was still in the extension even though my user account was deleted.

  4. All right, we’re definitely making progress here but and I really appreciate all the help and the speed the help has come but it’s still not quite gone yet.

    After installing the chrome beta it Did get removed from my extensions:

    And when doing the adware scan again it comes up with nothing: (Assuming the pending screen never goes away if there are no errors, stayed like that for over 10 minutes)

    Then for the Avast Browser cleaner, It erased the IIcoConveter 2.2 and says there are no problems with any of my browsers:

    Chrome subtab in Avast:
    IE subtab in Avast (even though I do not use it:

    So it appears to all be gone but it is acting like it’s still there:
    The underlined words with the ads:
    Random windows popping up when I click a link, such as:

    Under step 2 for the control panel it says that it can take forum of other things as well so even though I did remove the IIcoConvter 2.2 from the control panel I thought I’d share what mine has in case it’s hiding as something else I’m unaware of.

    Don’t know exactly what everything is and I don’t want to delete something that may be important. Some examples are Passshow, Savesense, ASUSDVD, and PC Speed up.

    And also when I uninstall / delete Yume Nikki (a game for RPG Maker that did not work) it says it deleted it but it still stays in the Control Panel, not sure if that means anything. However, that was installed on the 20th of January and the IIcoConvter 2.2 when it was there said it was installed on the 5th of February so I don’t think it could be from that. Nothing else says it was installed on the 5th of February as well and I’m not sure if it could install itself days after you installed the initial program it came from?

    Thanks again for the all the help.

  5. Obviously, you need to uninstall the following adware:

    Any Video Converter
    PC Speed Up
    Xvid Video Codec

    Run another scan after uninstalling these potentially unwanted programs.
