Removed

ANd all I know is it did the trick and my log is clean now! So if anyone else has this problem I would recommend using this tool to remove the stupid nail.exe that is unless someone else has a better idea????

Please do not post tools that have not been tested and confirmed by the staff, I removed the Nail.exe remover posted until we confirm it's trustworthiness
Thanks
