Titanium was Unable to Remove a Threat


All you need to do is to perform a full scan of your system and try to remove the threat. If after the full system scan Titanium is still not able to remove it, click on "More details" and remove the threat manually.

If the problem persists, download and install "HouseCall" (a free scanner from Trend Micro). After the installation, run a quick system scan. Once your threat has been detected you can then remove it.

If the problem still does not get resolved after the quick system scan using "HouseCall", restart your computer in "Safe Mode with Networking" and run a full system scan. Once the threat has been detected, it can be removed. You can now restart your computer to go back to Normal Mode

After removing the threat you can choose to either keep the free scanner or uninstall it.
