How to Remove SystemVeteran | Removal Guide



SystemVeteran is (yet another) variation from the wini family of rogue antivirus applications. Their last one prior to this was BlockProtector (BlockProtector Removal Guide) but it is a VERY long lived family and they are churning out one variation every two to three days. Most of these have the same look and feel and only differ in the name as well as the file names. They are all a pain in the neck for those that are stuck with them as they all popup warnings about threats detected on your computer that only they can solve if only you would purchase their software. Of course, then they really don’t do much because there weren’t these threats to begin with. Read on to find out how to remove SystemVeteran:


First off, you may wish to go to the control panel and attempt to remove systemveteran through the add/remove programs applet that is there. If this works cleanly I would still install a utility such as malwarebytes antimalware and scan the system with that and a trusted antivirus (trendmicro/avira/avg/etc.) to make sure the system is clean.

To clean out systemveteran you will want to start by downloading malwarebytes antimalware from my virus removal toolkit page. While you are there you may also wish to download process explorer.

If you have difficulty installing malwarebytes you may 1) rename it to another file name (the installer was mbam-setup.exe so rename it to bob.exe) and then retry the install, update and attempt to run a full scan. 2) reboot into safe mode and then attempt the installation, update and scan (you will need safe mode with networking for the update to work.) 3) follow along with the next step of a manual removal which involves killing off the running processes associated with systemveteran and then retry the installation of malwarebytes.

The following system processes are associated with systemveteran and should be killed off using the task manager. If task manager is unable to launch you may need to copy it’s executable file (taskmgr.exe) and paste to a new file and then rename it (* easy.exe for example.) Then try to rerun this new file. Alternatively use the copy of process explorer that I suggested you may wish to download above and use that to kill off the following processes:

Systemveteran.exe
Uninstall.exe
wjq4.tmp.exe

There may be other files running in memory associated with this program. Use the list of files that you should delete below to get an idea if there are any other processes running that were associated with systemveteran.

The following files and folders should be deleted for a manual removal of systemveteran from your computer:

%docs%%username%DesktopSystemVeteran.lnk
%docs%%username%Start MenuProgramsSystemVeteran.lnk
%progfiles%SystemVeteran Software
%progfiles%SystemVeteran SoftwareSystemVeteran
%progfiles%SystemVeteran SoftwareSystemVeteranSystemVeteran.exe
%progfiles%SystemVeteran SoftwareSystemVeteranUninstall.exe
%win%11542no5-a-9izus6e3.exe
%win%11935w9zm138.cpl
%win%12944viruz4759.ocx
%win%system32379athiez2365.cpl
%win%system3238019zrus115.ocx
%win%system32390sp91d5z.ocx

Even after completely removing all of the above files and folders I would suggest that you install, update and run a utility such as malwarebytes antimalware and then follow up that scan with that of a trusted antivirus program such as McAfee, trend micro, kaspersky, avg, or avira. At this point your removal of systemveteran should be complete.
