We'll try something else. Do the following and then try uninstalling.

ChkDsk Scan
  • Click Start and type cmd in the search box
  • Right-click cmd.exe that appears and choose Run as administrator. A black window should open.
  • Type chkdsk /R and then press enter. Note that there is a space between k and /R.
  • You may get a message that will tell you that the volume is locked and you will have to reboot. Type Y on your keyboard and press enter. Restart your computer.
Please note that I'm now going offline, so you might try leaving Revo open if ChkDsk doesn't help.

I'll be back later (it's past midnight here).

Hello again, Joe-King.

It looks like you've managed to get rid of these programs.

Could you please tell me what was the issue?

And I'm glad to hear that :)

Although, it is my duty as a malware remover to inform you about the following, just for your own safety:

Your Java version is too old. Keeping Java updated is very important as well.
  • WARNING!: Java is the #1 exploited program at this time. The Department of Homeland Security recommends that computer users disable Java.
    Read this article.
    I would recommend that you completely uninstall Java unless you need it to run an important software.
    In that instance I would recommend that you disable Java in your browsers until you need it for that software and then enable it. (See How to diasble Java in your web browser and How to unplug Java from the browser)
If you still want to keep Java
  • Click the Start button
  • Click Control Panel
  • Double Click Java - Looks like a coffee cup. You may have to switch to Large icons view on the upper right of the Control Panel to see it.
  • Click the Update tab
  • Click Update Now
  • Allow any updates to be downloaded and installed
  • Warning!: Make sure to uncheck Optional offer box when downloading Java or you will install an adware on your computer.

:lol: We've written almost at the same time.

 

As I've told you, unless you have any questions, I think we're done. I can't think of anything else for now.

Mind if I jump in for a single post? :P

Joe, you seem to be interested in knowing if your programs are up to date, and from your last MiniToolBox I can tell you that the following programs are outdated and needs to be updated:
  • Adobe Reader;
  • Google Chrome;
  • Malwarebytes;
  • Your NVIDIA drivers;
  • VLC media player;
Adobe Reader can be updated automatically once in the program, same for Google Chrome, Malwarebytes and VLC. For your NVIDIA drivers, simply open the NVIDIA GeFoce Experience program, let it look for drivers then download and install them :)

Good luck!

Thank you for jumping in Aura. I guess I should've just used an appropiate tool.
 

Thank you for all the help and knowledge you have given me.

My pleasure.

No problem Joe :) And it's alright Nevan, I had a thread on another forum that had over 70 pages with people posting their MiniToolBox logs and asking me to check which programs they should uninstall, replace and update so I got used at detecting the outdated programs and I pretty much know all their versions by heart now :lol:
