I just purchases a used tower computer at auction.
When I power it on it automatically loads this "Smartlaunch"
program then goes to a gaming type program that wants a log in and password. If I hit esc it asks for a pw and log in again.
I didn't get any recovery disks or password info. I bought this for a good deal so It's worth a little goofing around.
It's a P4 / 3ghz With 1 gb ram, running win XP pro.
I can get into safe mode with prompt and access the control panel and add remove programs.
I get a message saying it wont remove the smartlaunch in safe mode.
I've opened explorer in safe mode and moved the program to the recycle bin and rebooted but then it goes to a blank pale blue desktop that I get no action or response on.
I did a search on this site and found one post that said "content removed" so I assume that it was something about a hack or similar.
If this can't be addressed publicly can some one PM me as to how to get around this or delete the program?
