Do not know how this program has been installed on my computer, but I desperately want to remove it. Every time I try to uninstall it I get a message that I must close all related components that are currently running. What are they?
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.
