Hey everyone!
 

Recently, I noticed a frustrating bug which won't let me get rid of the orange coloring. While I was using my computer for playing, I had the f.lux turning my screen into orange which made it harder to play. I tried closing it, but didn't work. That's when I noticed something was wrong. I tried deleting f.lux, and the orange coloring remained on my screen. I even tried restarting my computer which didn't help me either. Any ideas what should I do?

I've already tried asking for help on f.lux's support forum, but I didn't really get a respond. :(

If you have already tried uninstalling it through 'Control panel - Programs and features' then I would download and install the Revo uninstaller, a free download from BC. This is very good at getting rid of fragments of applications left behind by the program's own uninstaller. See -

NOD32 won't let me open the download site.

I suspect this is a false positive. I just downloaded the file 'revosetup.exe' from the author's site and scanned it two ways and it came up clean. I used my AV - Avast - and Malwarebytes. I have never seen anybody complaining of 'nasties' being bundled with the Revo uninstaller.

 

It is obviously your decision but either add an exception to your AV or disable it while you do the download ?

I must modify my comment about no adverse comment !  See -

However my statement about the setup file I downloaded stand, it came up clean.

These are the things that Revo uninstaller found. I've deleted all of the ticked files. If there won't be any problem in the next 24 hours, then I think the deletion can be called successful.

Hopefully, after ticking all those files, it was the right decision to press next(tovább), because there was an other button which says delete(törlés)

It didn't help. It just turned on 10 minutes ago.

EDIT: I had to set my location to Miami instead of Hungary inside the app, so that it turns back into normal state. But it's only a temporary help.
