    • Hi Sheila,

      Did you get any error message when you try to uninstall the adware program from your control panel? If you are prevented to uninstall the program, I highly recommend you use the revo uninstaller to remove the program completely. You can use the trial version to uninstall any unwanted program.

      • I don’t get any message. It says it’s uninstalling but takes a long time – I mean real world long time, not just computer world. Like walk away, take the trash out and it hasn’t moved long time. So I should have said, it starts and then does nothing. I’ll try the revouninstaller above. Thanks for that.
