Have you tried removing it using the add/remove in Windows?

It's in Control Panel.

if all else fails.

format your hard-drive!

Does it scan your computer when it opens, then when you click remove it asks you to buy it?

I used these after much searching.

It was the worst thing I have seen on a pc. It wouldn't let me reinstall windows or format the hard drive either.

Any ideas how you got it? it was a friends pc and I fixed it but I'd love to know where she got it from?
