Is there any way to remove posready hack?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any ideas how to remove this hack? Quite frankly I'm just tired of it and want my computer to go back to normal. Thanks.

It is impossible to remove this hack under working OS (even in safe mode). You need to boot from WinPE or ERD Commander CD/Flash Drive and remove these entry from external OS (using tools like erdregedit).

It can be removed afterwards, too. But one has to remove Myrrh-Sebijk-Harkaz trick from the cold (unbooted) system, by using a live CD. That's described in this post.

I had an old DVD backup of my WinXP setup so had no problem getting rid of the posready hack over two years ago.

However, after reading about PCRegedit at the link that you provided ... I decided I would like to have a copy of that PCRegedit.iso for future use, if ever needed.

I can't exactly find the correct download link for the iso download. Do you know of a better link to the download ... unless I'm missing something ... I'm just not seeing the download link.

thanks ...

I boot WinPE and used the Registry Editor PE to remove the POSReady hack. Viewed from 5:38

The download link for PCRegedit.iso doesn't get you the file, just a link to a search engine.

I was able to get it by using the January 2016 Archive of the page.

Which - for those not familiar with the Wayback Machine (archive.org) equates to:

https://archive.org/

input the URL in the search field:
