Webcompanion.UI.AppCore.Services.InstallerService exception

Question

Just like everyone else, I accidentaly installed this malware and I got this pop up (Webcompanion.UI.AppCore.Services.InstallerService exception) after I uninstalled. Nothing suggested here has helped but I do have the FRST log files to PM, if someone is able to help out.

Really scummy operation from an adware "removal" company. I should be working, but this crap is messing with my computer. Also, thanks for hijacking my browser.

 

Re-install won't work, the app doesn't show up in remove program list, KomodiaFix gives error, all webcompanion files are still present in directory.

Here's how I resolved the problem: After trying to get all the fixes to work, but getting nothing but errors, I went to Lavasoft folder and re-installed the program from there (they have an installer there), then removed the program again, re-configured my firefox settings (such as open closed tabs when re-opening firefox) and restarted computer. The Lavasoft folder is gone, the error message is gone, so I hope it worked. Lavasoft and it's staff are useless. The only one who deserves some recognition is CeciliaB, for trying to help people... and she's a volunteer. I hope I never have to come here again and I'll be sure to spread the word of this scummy company.

Hi,

Nice that you solved your problem and wrote the solution :)

In the rules that adaware software (Lavasoft) has for the companies that want to include WebCompanion with their installation files, those companies must let you choose weather you want to install WebCompanion or not. If you didn't get a choice, adaware software would like to know which program that you installed to be able to talk to that manufacturer.

Note that all information I have comes from adaware software, I'm not a specialist in their products, they are. Therefore the staff isn't useless, they provide me with a lot of useful information when I forward the questions here to them, and neither the company nor their products are scams.
