Hey there

 

Seems like I have another problem, this time it's a problem with uninstalling a program.

 

The program is called " TrustedShopper " by SquekyChocolate and I honestly dont recall how come I installed this program.

So, Im trying to uninstall it but there's an error saying " A program required for this install to complete could not be run  ".

 

I also tried to use " Revo Uninstaller Free " to remove this program but again the same error occured

 

By the way, I took a look on the installed programs list to find out which programs I have installed on the same date and there's 2 only, Daemon Tools Lite and Microsoft Visual C++.

I thougt Daemon Tools Lite is the problem and I uninstalled it, but it didnt help at all.

I searched for possible unwanted toolbars/ extensions in all of my browsers ( Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer ) but no sign of any of those extensions.

 

Now my question is, is this some kind of virus/ malware ?

And more important, how do I uninstall it ?

I suspect that you have some malware on your computer causing issues that we are not able to solve through means we can use here in the Tech Forums. I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found here. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

 

Additional guidance;

1: Do not create a topic on the malware forum unless you have a malware issue that you cannot resolve yourself.

2: If you do need to start a topic there provide a link to this thread so that steps that have already been taken can be checked.

3: As the Malware Techs are extremely busy you may not receive an instant reply, if you have waited for three days then post in the Waiting Room  http://www.geekstogo...e-waiting-room/ be sure to identify the issue as malware related and provide a link to your malware topic.

Hey, sorry for the late reply ..

 

I used the program OTL, used the clean up option and I can finally say this program is gone.

 

By the way, do you mind telling me what exactly does this program do ? I am aware that it removes malwares, but does it also update applications ?

After using it I noticed a program " EPU 4 - ENGINE " got updated because it says it's installed on 29th September and I remember this program was installed more than a year ago, June 2013

 

Thanks a lot :)
