Hello there:
\015\012Here are several things you can do easiest first!!
\015\012Go into the add/remove programs and click the box that says show updates and see if it is in there. If there is more than 1 user switch over and do the same thing.
\015\012Try to search all files and folders under all accounts to see if it is there.
\015\012If not you can restore the computer to a earlier time to try to find it and remove it.Just rember you can always undo the restore if you find it and remove it thenall you have to do is just undo the last restore that you did and restore it back to today ok? please keep me posted cause there is still more that we can do ok?
\015\012i hope that this a fixya please dont forget to rate this for me.
\015\012 best regards
