Hey, recently I uninstalled scorpionsaver with the tutorial here on the front page. It seems the program and files were deleted but the program is still in my uninstall list. Could this have something to do with my internet freezing up briefly at random moments?

Maybe is some malware or something that when you want to uninstall that software that software installs again!

Could be, but when I try to remove the program it says that it is looking for the uninstall files. I looked everywhere and couldn't find a trace of the program anywhere. I even checked regedit and nothing. There is nothing but the program in the uninstall list.

Read the new tutorial http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-scorpion-saver

Scorpion Saver is an adware program that is commonly bundled with other free programs that you download off of the Internet.

 

Thank You -

If Add/Remove Programs or Programs and Features in Vista/Windows 7/8 is showing an entry but the program's uninstaller or folder has been removed, then it could just be an orphaned entry in the Windows registy. Orphaned entries are harmless and can be removed by going into the registry but a much safer and easier way to do this is to download and use a third-party utility.These tools are similar to Windows Add/Remove (Programs and Features) but include several options in addition to uninstall. For orphaned entries, right-click on the entry and choose "Remove Entry" or "Delete".
