How do I uninstall stardock/Wincustomize skin

by Lawrence1955 / January 28, 2009 3:04 AM PST

I have WIndows XP. Recently downloaded a skin from Wincustomize onto Firefox and now I want to get rid of it and can't. My stardock folder is empty - would I need to reinstall stardock to accomplish this?
After I installed it, I noticed firefox had slowed down and when I do a search the usual responses aren't there - I get advertising sites instead. This is really worrying me!
Thanks for your help

What antivirus software are you running?

Does this installation show in your Add and Remove? Start | Control Panel | Add and Remove? If it does, you can remove it through that ulitiy. If it does not, try Revo Uninstaller.

Keep us posted.

kind regards,

I have found Stardock/Objectdock the most annoying program I have ever had on my PC,it done funny things to my PC and no matter how I tried to get rid of it just would not go away, but I would not let it beat me. Forget all other methods this will defiantly get rid in just a couple of easy steps, download the trial link below and enjoy the freedom again. Regards Patrick

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
