Hello.

 

Recently I've been trying to figure out on how to delete a certain program through PowerShell. It stops working, a lot of people say a virus keeps this to happen. Unfortunately, no. I ran a full scan with Windows Defender, ran ESET Poweliks Cleaner (says it's not detected) and a trial of Emisoft Anti-Malware. Yet, after restarting PC, PowerShell error keeps occurring.

 

Is there any other way to get PowerShell working?

 

 

 

EDIT1: Here's the log, if anything.
