Exclamation uninstall program for free ride games that will not uninstall

I've tried my add-remove programs / the uninstall program neither one works it says I need a some kind of exe player. I need to remove it because its causing havoc on my computer like changing settings, could not log into my email on internet explorer(had to install firefox) to log into my email, deactivating identity protection on my AVG program. Is there a free program to uninstall free ride games.

Hi

Try Revo Uninstaller HERE

Also try Safe Mode to uninstall with the normal Add/Remove or Revo also.

You would also be best to run the Read Me Guide in the malware forum here and then attach the logs to a new thread in the malware forum for the experts there to review as your issues could be malware related, especially as your AVG keeps getting disabled.

Hi
I would follow DavidGP's advice and run the scans in the Read Me Guide on the malware section. You could still have underlining issues with your machine that could cause even more havoc if left un-addressed.

I went ahead with the Read Me Guide and finally completed it and "I now have no problems, everything is working just fine, Thanks a lot....I'm unsure how or where to post all the results.

Hi,
You should create a new thread here ....

http://forums.majorgeeks.com/forumdisplay.php?f=35

and post the logs there and one of the malware experts will go over them foryou to make sure that your machine is clean.... please be patient though as they can be very busy, but one of them WILL contact you.
