I was able to uninstall PCMightymax from the program but the icon is still in the tool bar of the startup progams and keeps popping up every hour even though it no longer shows up as a program option. I tried to remove it from the startup programs but there is no way to get rid of it. The delete button won't highlight as soon as I click on PCMightymax under startup programs. Help

Go to Control Panel...Classic View...Windows Defender...Tools...Software Explorer and disable it from there.

Alternatively, go to Control Panel...Classic View...Performance Information and Tools...Manage Startup Programs

After that, go to C:\Program Files\, and delete the PcMightyMax folder.
