Hello to everyone and happy Australian Day!

My mother has installed this application called "i protect you" or something. It basically is supposed to warn you about certain sites you go to. The only thing is that I carn't seem to be able to uninstall it. It does not get populated in the add/remove programs list and I carn't find an uninstall icon. Could someone please help me with this? Also there are a couple of other programs like spybot SD which come up in add/remove programs but do not have a remove button when they are selected. Does anyone know why this would happen. Thanks in advace.

CCleaner (short for Crap Cleaner) does a safe and nice job of cleaning a system of useless miscellaneous information.
download it from here - http://www.ccleaner.com/

when you have downloaded ccleaner, open it.

1 - click tools.

2 - click uninstall, if its in the programs to remove list, highlight it by right click.

3 - click run uninstaller.

when thats finished go to issues > click the scan for issues button and backup when prompted.


cheers...xxx1
