TV Media Removal Instructions

TVMedia/BHO and its variant SSK cannot be removed whilst the Windows shell (explorer.exe) is running. One way to avoid this is to boot to Safe Mode (hammer the F8 key whilst booting to get the menu that leads to Safe Mode) then delete the 'TV Media' or 'SurfSideKick 2' folder in Program Files.

In Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 there is a slightly quicker way. Open a DOS command prompt window (from 'Accessories' in the 'Programs' menu in 'Start'). Then open the Task Manager (from the System Tray menu or pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete), select the explorer.exe process and end it. The task bar and other Windows shell elements will disappear.

In the command prompt window, enter, for the BHO variant:
del "\Program Files\TV Media"

Or, for the SSK variant:
del "\Program Files\SurfSideKick 2"

Next, to clean up, open the Registry (click 'Start', choose 'Run', enter 'regedit'), and find the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce (BHO variant) or just ...\Run (SSK variant). Delete the entry 'TV Media' pointing to Tvm.exe (BHO variant) or 'SurfSideKick 2' (SSK variant). Now do the same in the tree HKEY_CURRENT_USER instead of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

You can also delete the key/entry named {707E6F76-9FFB-4920-A976-EA101271BC25} (BHO variant) or {CA0E28FA-1AFD-4C21-A8DC-70EB5BE2F076} (SSK variant) from the keys HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\UrlSearchHooks.

Jeired variant
Open a DOS command prompt window (from 'Accessories' in the 'Programs' menu in 'Start') and enter the following commands:
cd "%WinDir%\System"
regsvr32 /u "..\jeired.dll"
Reboot and you should be able to delete the jeired.dll file inside the Windows folder.

Open the registry (click 'Start', choose 'Run', enter 'regedit') and find the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. Delete the TVMD, TVTMD or MSMGT entry.

Reboot and you should be able to delete the TVMD.exe, TVTMD.exe or MSMGT.exe files from the Windows folder.
