Hello Yet Another Cleaner (YAC) is NOT malware but just a poor AV/Malware tool.

The above tools will not remove it correctly. Though MBAM's regular tool will do a better job.

You can read more here

The correct way to remove most programs and many toolbars is to use Add/Remove Programs or Programs and Features in Control Panel, so always check there first. Important! Reboot when done and delete the Program folder if it still exists.

Alternatively, you can use a third-party utility like Revo Uninstaller Free or Portable and follow these instructions for using it. Revo provides a listing of all installed software by installation date and when removing a program, Revo does a more comprehensive job of searching for and removing related registry entries, files and folders.

Note: With some programs it's easier to uninstall after booting into safe mode which is designed to start Windows with minimal drivers and running processes to diagnose problems with your computer. In safe mode many programs and their related services that normally start when Windows starts will not run. Since that is the case, it also means there are less processes which can interfere with uninstalling a program.

Keep in mind that not all programs show up in Add/Remove Programs or Programs and Features. Some will have their own uninstaller, which can be found in the program's folder. This is by design as some vendors write installation routines so their program will not be included in the Add/Remove list. If the program is not listed in Add/Remove or Programs and Features, look for an uninstall icon (shortcut) from within its program group. Click on StartBtn.gif > All Programs (or Program Files), look for the program folder by name, open it and use the program's uninstaller. If it's not there, the next step would be to open Window's Explorer, manually navigate to the program's folder itself, look for an uninstaller file (i.e. uninstall.exe) and double-click on it to run.

If the above does not work, I found the following support information for the vendor (Woodtale Technology).
Support e-mail: isafe@woodtalesoft.com
Support phone: 3233063136 .. thx quietman7 for the removal data.

There may be other issues as well, I would suggest that you run through the programs I posted. Especially if you never have done so, since you mentioned low memory and the machine shutting off. :)


Although your machine your choice.
