Thread: uninstall.exe is a malicious program

    Default uninstall.exe is a malicious program

    I went to Control Panel and attempted to uninstall "Shopping Sidekick Plugin" which is an advertising program that I need to get rid of.

    When I attempted to uninstall it, I got a small popup from ZA down by the taskbar that said: uninstall.exe is a malicious program and was prevented from running on your computer.

    How do I fix this? I am running win8 on a new computer

    Please follow all the steps as suggested here:

    Malware Clean-up Guidance

    If one step does not apply to you then move to the next.

    If everything else fails I would post your logs at bleepingcomputer to have your system cleaned manually.
