Try using Revo Uninstaller. Even if it can't uninstall the application normally, it will force it to uninstall by wiping out all traces of its presence from the system.

After that, try running AdwCleaner to make sure that there are no leftover rogue registry keys or toolbars in your system.

Additionally, run AdwCleaner for the second time in a row to make sure your computer is clean from these adware programs.

it may be walware so you can remove it with safe mode

  1. Boot up or reboot your pc and when you see the screen becoming active start tapping the F8 key at one half second intervals until you see a black screen with white lettering.
  2. Look at the list of Safe Mode options near the top of the displayed page and use the arrow keys to move the highlighted line up to the SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING line and then hit enter.
  3. Give the pc a few minutes to fully boot up. It will boot with a fairly normal looking desk top screen but will have "Safe Mode" in all 4 corners of the display.
  4. Hopefully you have virusbytes installed. If so update the virus definitions using the Check For Updates selection in the settings icon in the top right of the screen and download the latest definitions. If you don't have it installed, use your internet browser (IE; Firefox; Chrome; etc.) and go to download.com, use the search box and search for virusbytes and download it and install it.
  5. Click on the Scan area in virusbytes and run a full scan. When complete review the findings (if any) and then select all of them (right click on one of the little check boxes) and then click on Remove All. virusbytes will remove all of the found problem items.
  6. Reboot the pc.
