Hello Bleeping Computer,
I was trying to download some freeware (scribus to be exact). When I was trying to download it, I must have clicked a bad link because when I attempted to download it, my Trend Micro blocked the download. I then went to my programs folder to see if I was infected, and sure enough ASPCA Reminder by We-Care.com V18.104.22.168 was installed. It never asked for permmission, and it got around my Trend Micro. I thought nothing of it, and tried to uninstall it. When I clicked uninstall, it has an error pop up saying "The path 'C:\ProgramData\ReadOnlyInstaller.msi' cannot be found. Verify that you have access to this location and try again, or try to find the installation package 'ReadOnlyInstaller.msi' in a folder from which you can install the product ASPCA Reminder by We-Care.com v22.214.171.124." So I searched for ASPCA on my computer, nothing showed up, searched We-Care and got a file called Chromeuninstall.exe or something like that in a folder called We-Care Reminder at the location C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\We-Care Reminder running it just said "this refers to a file that no longer exists" and deleted the file. So I decided to downloaded Malwarebytes, run it, it quarantined the suspect files (We-Care somethinganother, I forget the specifics but it did contain "We-Care" in the file name, no ReadOnlyInstaller.msi), and deleted them. I thought nothing of it. This was a few days ago. Today I suddenly thought to check and see if the program actually uninstalled, and lo-and-behold, it's still there, still giving me the same error. What do I do?
