    I’d like to also point out that it sometimes does not appear in control panel and persists, this had me annoyed as i did everything else possible to remove it so i managed to find a folder of it in the programme file (x86) on my local disk, make sure to check this and uninstall it from there, problem stopped afterwards.

      how do you uninstall from the Programme file x8?

      • Tinna_Anvisoft

        Do you mean you find BlockAndSurf file in Programme file (x86) but still can’t uninstall it? Could you check whether there is an uninstall.exe under the BlockAndSurf file? If there is, you can remove it by running the uninstall.exe of BlockAndSurf. If there is not, you can remove it by getting rid of all files under BlockAndSurf file. furthermore, if you can’t delete the BlockAndSurf files, you need go to safe mode to remove them.
