I have recently tried to download a music editing software program with little sucess. It seems I accidentally got a bug instead. The program name is MossySky and I am unable to delete/uninstall the program via the control panel. I have not seen any harm from this program as it is barely 30 minutes old, but I know it's not what i wanted to download and it could be a problem later. any advice on how to get rid of this?

Go into "my computer" then do a search for the program
Delete every folder that has to do with the program then delete icon on desktop...it may still show up on the list of programs but without the folders it is virtually gone o and I would suggest running a virus scan after deleting

A link to the fact that MossySky could be a very bad program -

If you cannot remove it, Please post to the Am I Infected section and include any logs requested -

Thank You -
