BlockRemove was created to remove the Block-Checker adware/spyware/malware. It should remove files, directories, and registry keys created by Block-Checker.

If you are concerned with the authenticity or safety of downloading BlockRemove, I refer you to the "100% free" award my AIMFix tool has garnered twice from Softpedia download archive, which certifies it free of all malware (viruses, trojans, and spyware). You can also search Google for my name or for AIMFix (or AIMFix) and you will find the millions of people who have been helped by AIMFix, as well as the dozens of Universities that officially support and recommend it.

In August 2005, I was contacted by someone who said they had a "block checker virus". I looked into it and found that Block-Checker appeared, at least on the surface, to be a legitimate program for Instant Messenger. I forwarded that reader the removal instructions listed on the Block-Checker website, and put up a page with the information I had found.

Not long after, I received several more emails regarding Block-Checker, asking for removal help. I decided to create a removal tool for this pest. At the time, because I was unsure of details, I declined to add this to AIMFix and instead created a separate tool known as BlockRemove.
