how to delete otshot

by handbells / May 3, 2013 9:07 AM PDT

I'm unable to remove otshot. Each time computer starts up there's the otsot skin cannot be loaded, do you want outlook contacts imported. I have never used oulook.

Are You Referring To The Photo Sharing Program?

To say the least, "otshot" portion can be a pain... Try uninstalling the program, or changing the settings within the program.. If you've been unable to uninstall the program, try using a secondary, free uninstaller such as Revo Uninstaller at the link below. Download the freeware version, run it, then remove ONLY the otshot portions that are found.:

Once you've done that, then download the free Hitman Pro program from the link below and run a malware scan using Hitman.. It should be able to find and remove the unwanted programs that might remain.

Hope this helps.

uninstall OtShot

To uninstall OtShot, click the "Start" button at the bottom of your screen and then click on "Control Panel" (in some cases you have to click "Settings" first and then "Control Panel". When the Control Panel window opens, click "Add and Remove Programs". Find OtShot in the list of programs installed on your computer and click "Remove".
Hope this helps!!

I downloaded revo and hitman.

This only works if otshot is in the window of revo.

I originally used the regular windows remove and still there are remnants of otshot.
It is also listed on my icon list below.

It comes up every time I boot up with:

"unable to load skin"...I close this then this pops up....

"would you like to import your contacts form outlook?"

8 hits out of 10 on the first page of are about removing it. Might work for you.

The current bottom post of this thread (6/20/13) has a link to the faq of their site, and says the method shown there worked. Did you try it already?
