I've uninstalled it safely from all of them using the Add/Remove Programs section.

Hope this helps.

It May Not Be Installed Yet...

In reply to: Hi Grif

On some new computers, you need to install the trial version of a program before it will show up in "Add/Remove Programs". If that's the case here, then you should be able to simply delete the "shortcut" that's listed in the Start-All Programs list..

Unfortunately, you've haven't told us if the program actually works or whether it's currently running.. If it's already installed and the program works if you click on the Start-All Programs-SpamSubtract, then there should be an "uninstall" location somewhere.. The trick is finding it.. Sometimes, it will show up in the "Start-All Programs-SpamSubtract-Uninstall" but it's hard to tell from here without further information from here. Or maybe you can find the uninstall file using Windows Explorer to check the C\Program Files\Intermute\SpamSubtract folder. Sometimes you need to hunt it down in the C\Windows\Installer\*.msi files.

Hope this helps.

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?
