  1. Thank you Aleksei Abalmasov!
    I had performed all these steps and it was not work out well
    I mean I can’t fulfill the last item – to delete 360SANDBOX

  2. Hi,
    1 This joker changes permissions – you are denied access so cannot delete it’s files
    2 Because It is not listed in control panel – the delete option cannot be used
    3 I have tried to nuke it with Regedit – no luck there either
    4 I did try malwarebytes – it did identify it as a PuP but removal failed and since then, it has ignored it’s presence.
    5 Far from removing 360, Spyhunter has whitelisted it and does absolutely nothing – why are you claiming it removes it when it does nothing at all?

    I am going to transfer all other data to a transfer disc then format the HD

    After I do get rid of it I am going to destroy the part of china that created this beast

  3. E tirar o 360 do meu Android?
    Não sai de jeito nenhum

  4. Please also note to editor and commenters – this assumes 32-bit Windows. In 64-bit Windows, you have to look under the WOW6432NODE for the registry breakdowns of the regeistry entries as well. I didn’t find any entries following the vanilla post, but I found a ton in the WOW6432NODE sub-areas following the same instructions

  5. Usem o revo uninstaller, solucionou o meu problema removendo o 360 security
