-> You do not go to a website to uninstall; you run the installer located on your own computer. Without the program names, though...

What programs are you trying to uninstall?
-> You have to provide the relevant details or we cannot help.

Also, you previously stated "but the computer will not go to the site."
-> If you are not trying to go to a website, why report that you cannot go to the site?
