I stupidly let a friend of mine download this file on my laptop and now I want to get rid of it and it won't go away! I've done everything. I deleted it off the desktop and then from the recycle bin. I run my security system on it, no virus or so it says. I uninstalled the two programs that helped get it on there. I deleted it from my c drive. It had even created it's own "f" drive so I deleted that too. But each and every time I go to the control panel to uninstall it, the install shield wizard comes up and stops because it has a error. I've rebooted it a few times too. Let's just say I'm not going to be doing this again. This is what it tells me:
An error (-5005 : 0x8000ffff) has occured while running this setup.
Please make sure you have finished any previous setup and closed other applications.
If the error still occurs, please contact your vendor.
Error Code: -5005 : 0x8000ffff
