⚠️ Regarding Vovsoft Clipboard Reader

We have been receiving reports about Vovsoft Clipboard Reader. When downloaded from a reputable website, this program is safe and clean.

However, if you haven't intentionally downloaded the program and it's launching without your consent, it suggests a virus infection on your computer. Vovsoft cannot be held liable for such instances where the Clipboard Reader opens unexpectedly due to a virus. We strongly advise running a thorough antivirus scan to resolve this matter.

It appears that the virus copies the program into the user folder and renames clipboardreader.exe to GUBootService.exe.

The common way to uninstall a Vovsoft software product is to manually remove it through the "Add/Remove Programs" applet of Windows system. This is an inbuilt program which is accessible from the "Windows Settings" of your PC and allows you to uninstall programs.

Follow the steps below:

  1. Close the Vovsoft software if it is running on your computer. Check system tray icons and "Task Manager".
  2. Go to the "Control Panel".
  3. Locate the "Programs and Features" icon and click on it.
  4. Locate the Vovsoft software in the list of programs. Select it, then click "Uninstall".
  5. Your browser may launch an uninstall feedback web page.

Can't Find the Vovsoft Software?

If the Vovsoft software keeps opening automatically but you can't see the uninstall in the "Start menu", "Programs and Features" or "Apps and Features", do the following:

  1. Open "Task Manager" (Ctrl+Shift+Escape).
  2. Go to "Startup" tab.
  3. Locate the Vovsoft software.
  4. Right-click the Vovsoft software.
  5. Use "Disable", "Open file location" and delete it.

Task Manager Startup


Additional Steps for Power Users

Although the above steps are sufficient for most users, if you want to clear registry settings and residual files as well, please follow the additional steps below:

Warning: The following procedure involves viewing the Windows Registry. Using the Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that could lead to data loss, and may require you to reinstall Windows. Use the Registry Editor at your own risk!
  • Open "regedit" and delete the following keys:
    ➡️ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\VOVSOFT
    ➡️ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\VOVSOFT
    ➡️ HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\VOVSOFT
    ➡️ HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VS\ServiceModules
     
  • Open the following directories and delete their contents:
    ➡️ %PROGRAMFILES%\VOVSOFT
    ➡️ %PROGRAMFILES(X86)%\VOVSOFT
    ➡️ %APPDATA%\VOVSOFT

HOW TO FIX/DELETE VIRUS IF VOVSOFT POST DIDN'T WORK!(Thank me later):
Open task manager (press Control, shift, esc all at same time), then go to the startup tab. Clipboard reader from the vovsoft publisher should be at the top with a high start up impact. Left click the clipboard reader/GUbootservice, then disable. Left click it again and open file location. Now open command prompt (windows button and r at same time, then enter "cmd" and hit enter) and also a web browser just in case you get stuck in a void because were about to close file explorer. Copy the link in file explorer to the location of the virus. Now go to the details section also in task manager go to the details section, then find "explorer.exe" and end the task. Most ur tabs and windows 10 will dissapear and you'll have command prompt, task manager, and web browser. In the command prompt after ending task for all explorer.exe in task manager, type del and the exact file address u copied from file explorer where the virus folder is located. Should look like this "del C:\Users\Urmom\AppData\Roaming\PatchClient_v3" In the command prompt and hit enter. If file explorer is not ended through task manager it will not work! Then after it should be deleted and u can type "explorer" into task manager and windows 10 will come back up.

This virus ripped my steam info then my account was drained of items and money within like 2-3 days without any security notifications and nothing has ever happened like this before. The hardest virus I've had to remove too. It's not joke but a pain in the ass more than anything. It just spies and looks for passwords. Someone on this forum "asif" even indicated they use this to steal from people. Geek get a life nerd. Let games and movies be free without all these nerds trying to scrape together 10 pennies from us. None of the top 5 antiviruses caught this either. The cert. says it was made on 04/05/2024 so its very new too and I think I got it from a new game... eh whatever stay diligent. Took me hours to get rid of this weirdos little virus its not even well written either. Very obvious you have a virus when you have it.

When I uninstall, can I recover the license and activate in the future (when I reinstall) or activate in another computer?

Hi Dang. Uninstall process doesn't remove licensing information. When you reinstall later, no license key will be asked. You can also use the same license key on another computer you own. Please read "Payment Questions" for more information.
