I downloaded a free version of Pc Performer from PerformerSoft.LLC. As a pensioner I do not want to purchase the full program. Its not for me. I have tried to uninstall theough Control Panel. (I know how to do this) I get this error message. C:ProgramFilesPC Performerinins.ooo.msg I have emaild the company but they have not provided me with the solution. Currently the program is in the task bar and I cannot close the window. It also starts up when I switch on, but is not shown in the Start Up menue ?? I think this is fishy and I do not trust this program or company. Why can I not just simpy remove ?? This problem should be looked into as I have the same problem with 10bit from Spigot, Inc. Thank you for your attention and hopefully HELP! Rod Hedges

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The reason you cannot remove it is because it is not suppose to be removed unless you buy it. Basically, you got pawned… Never download software unless it is from a legit company because they put in software where a normal user cannot find it and makes it hard to remove it, such as your problem now. So, unless you know how to hack programs out and what to look for, you will either need to a) purchase the program and then try to remove it, if it let’s you, or b) you purchase a legit program that you assist you in problems like this. One that I may suggest is PC Tools. I have used it for years for family who don’t listen to me and do what you did and if I don’t have the time to hack the problem out, which could take a couple of hours, at a minimum, I use this program. Read the different types of programs they have and purchase the one you need and hopefully you won’t need to use it again.

BTW, I hope you have a virus software on your system, right?

And you are backing up your data, right?

    Maximum free SWs r not supported by the same vendor except very few. If u did amc for that, then may be they provide supports. This is not their fault, but this is the true ! There r 3 ways to completely remove this program.... If u r so confident, u may remove the prog by using "regedit" built-in utility, but this job is so tedious and time consuming. If u r not comfortable, then u may use any free uninstaller sw like revo, but only dnld free vers, don't worry it is free and I used it and helps to remove without any hackle. May be there r more, but u can find it on net. And last is if this not works, then go for format ur comp, but I never support format while try at ur best level to remove the SW and keep intact ur valuable data / files / folders. This is ur kind info to clear ur concepts. Remember, whatever u do, must and must take backups for ur valuable data/ files before doing anything.
