    This company tricked me into downloading it's sampler product f Uniblue that supposedly checks and cleans the registry. Now I cannot get it off my computer no matter what I try, including uninstall through Control Panel. The damn thing starts when I start my computer. I've searched and found the parts of it, transferred them to my recycle bin and dumped the bin. It's still on my computer.
    Can anyone help me? I am really ticked! You can e-mail me at [email protected] if you'd like.

    Uniblue Registry Booster should have removed very easily thru control panel add or remove.

    If you delete the Uniblue folder at C:\Program Files\Uniblue, it should be gone.

    You can go to regedit and delete the registry key
    Click start/ run/ type> regedit
    Find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Uniblue
    Right click the Uniblue reg folder and delete.

    To just stop it from loading at startup, Click start/ run/ type> msconfig
    Under the Startup tab, uncheck Uniblue or Registry Booster.

    Welcome to TSG jtisch :)

    Deleting is not a proper way of uninstalling a program and can cause many future problems. If you want to delete an application, then do it properly:-

    Uninstalling Programs Manually
    How to Manually Remove Programs from the Add or Remove Programs Tool
    Uninstall - How do I uninstall a program and ensure it is completely removed?

    For your current and future problems, I suggest you use any of the following uninstallers. Some of them are free whereas others are paid. Anyways, they all do the work very well:-

    Revo Uninstaller
    Your Uninstaller! 2006
    Ashampoo Uninstaller 2 Platinum
    Smarty Uninstaller 2007 Pro
    Uninstall Manager
    Absolute Uninstaller
    CCleaner

    You are a genius, thanks so much. I knew the damn thing was in the registry but I didn't know where to find it.
