Notifications at startup after uninstall/sys. restore?

by TipsyTraveler / August 9, 2013 8:07 AM PDT

Ok so on my sisters windows 7 computer, she ended up getting a few shady programs that she didnt want that caused a lot of pop-ups. so naturally, i went to "uninstall a program" and uninstalled them. i forget why, but she ended up using the "system restore" option built into the computer to revert back to a previous date. now she gets notifications at startup saying that the files cannot be found, etc. to these programs. so since she was on a previous date before uninstall, i tried uninstalling them once again, but when i tried i got an error on one of them (speedupmyPC) saying:\
"Messages file C:\Progam Files (x86)\Uniblue\SpeedUpMYPC\unins000.msg is missing. please obtain a new copy of the program.

i get errors like these when try to re-uninstall any of the programs that i previously uninstalled. sorry this was a bit wordy but she wants these gone so she doesnt have to click OK on all of them at startup everytime, thanks for any help ^.^
