Unwanted UniBlue. How to get rid.

Three days ago I clicked on the UniBlue panel for a computer scan. I decided I did not want their service after it ran a scan. Now everytime I start up the laptop, the first thing to appear is the UniBlue panel and it takes a minute or so to get rid of it. I found it had installed itself in 'Programmes', but I removed it from there, but even so it still apppears on the desktop each time I start up. Suggestions please for its permanent removal.

Try msconfig,Then start up.See if the Uniblue program is ticked if so untick it.Apply.Ok.

Should have said go into Run and type msconfig and press ok.

Permanent removal would be to download it again without running it,Then download Revo uninstaller and run it on setting 4 to get rid of it completely.

Only remove the things on thick black print and when it gets to the last bit It may give you about 6-10 things that are on your computer that you can recognise remove them.

Jock1e, Thanks for your suggestion. Prior to trying your remedy it was suggested I try, " Revo Uninstaller." I downloaded that and have now removed UniBlue.

A bit late in the day for this, but as I say in my last post, I got rid of it by using " Revo Uninstaller." I am well past retirement age, and a novice with computers (3 yrs experience) but Revo Uninstaller is very simple to use. I can only recommend it.

geordiefred it does come in handy at times.

I try not to run it to often just in case it deletes something it should not.

I use it on W/7 but so far not downloaded it on to my W/8 computer.No doubt the time will come when I do need it.

Anyhow glad that sorted your problem.
