Widcomm Uninstalltion wipes out the computer. New Virus or Windows Voulnerability.
VERY SERIOUS BUG/VULNERABILITY WIDCOMM BLUETOOTH SOFTWARE
Uninstalling Widcomm bluetooth software from control panel wipes out all data, programs and the boot sector on the computer.
I have tried to report this to microsoft but can't find out how. Please report this to the appropirate department.
I have windows 7 home premium. I tried to update my widcomm bluetooth software by downloading and installing the upgrade. The installation fails giving error 1935. After that the existing widcomm software becomes nonoperational. I tried to uninstall the widcomm
bluetooth software from control panel the message "please wait while windows configures Bluetooth software". As it works all files from the hard drive are deleted, the desktop becomes empty, all open programs are deleted, all app data is deleted, the start
menu becomes empty and finally it asks to reboot. After reboot the computer gives boot error message and does not boot up.
I had to install windows again to get the computer working. All data was lost. The anti virus was up to date and recent scans were all good. Windows was up to date. It appears that the error is from windows uninstaller some how going haywire when trying to
remove widcomm bluetooth software. After restoring my computer I installed widcomm bluetooth software, copied the hard drive and tried to uninstall widcomm again. Results were exactly the same and I got screen shots from the beginning to the end. I have tried
it on multiple computers with the same results (cloned the disk before)
