    I want to remove Removing Ascentive Performance Ctr & Ascentive PC Scan. According to many postings I have seen on the web, Ascentive is a spyware. Can I start the uninstall process from this forum?

    Hello. :)

    You are right, Ascentive is spyware.

    Some information that you may want to peruse:
    Ascentive Complaints - Installed Trojan Horse and adware
    MalwareTeks Blog ascentive.com
    ascentive.com | Web Safety Ratings from McAfee SiteAdvisor (Even though it is rated as green)


    Let's start on the removal process!


    Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here

    Double Click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
    • Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
    • If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
    • Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
    • The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
    • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
    • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
    • When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart. (See Note)
    • The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
    Note:
    If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts.
    Click OK for either of the prompts and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process.
    If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.
