I accidentally downloaded a .zip file with the same name as a legitimate file I was trying to download but I didn't notice it was actually a .exe until after I ran it. It installed the BuyNsave extension in Chrome that I cannot seem to get rid of. I tried following the welcome guide but cannot run DDS (it is telling me that it cannot be run in compatibility mode) I am running Windows 8.1 64-bit. Please help, I am desperate at this point. Thank you in advance.


Edit: Never mind, I was able to figure it out.
