Unless you're very knowledgeable with the registry. I would uninstall it while in safe mode and verifying it is not running prior to uninstalling it.

Do you know what the process or service name is that FixCleaner uses? Thank you for your help.

Unfortunately no I do not. I have limited knowledge of that application.

Unless there is some unmentioned problem with Fixcleaner, why can't you use one of the better uninstallers such as Revouninstaller?

The Revo Uninstaller Freeware in safe mode worked like a charm and got the job done. Thanks everybody for your help.
