    No need to do recovery.
    1) Open task manager
    2) Terminate ‘dv.exe’
    3) Open ‘C:\Program Data’
    4) Delete folder ‘Datafile’
    5) Open command prompt
    6) Type ‘shutdown /a’
    7) Use a tool like CCleaner to remove startup entry for dv.exe (if computer has multiple users, you may have to do this for each one).
    That should do it…
