I installed a Bitser last year trying to follow mesmerizing directions to get Linux. I tried to uninstall it today through Control Panel in Windows 10, and it asks me if I want to allow Bitser to make changes to this computer.

What happens if you select No?

 

You could use a program like Move on Boot to uninstall this program.

It is not unusual, at all, for UAC (User Account Control) to pop up with that question/warning both when a program is being installed and when it's being uninstalled depending on the technique the uninstaller uses.

 

If you're initiating the uninstall for a program you know you installed on your system then answer "Yes".

Adding to what others have said...yes, go ahead and choose YES.

Bitser is a freeware program...... but, depending on from where you downloaded it....it likely was bundled with adware.

You should run some scans for adware.

 

Suggest using AdwCleaner, Malwarebytes and Junkware Removal Tool if you haven't used those since installing Bitser.
