I somehow downloaded something called BackupDutyLite, I remember doing it. It appeared to be a legit Microsoft download, but it is clearly  not. It shows how to uninstall, but it does nothing when you click on uninstall.

Hi,

 

Have you tried to run this:

 

  C:\Program Files\BackUpDutyLite\uninst.exe

 

Hope this helps.

I trust in your expertise, and I am a dummy, just one more question, how do I run C:\Program Files\BackUpDutyLite\uninst.exe?

This did not work for me.  I've tried the uninstall exe dozens of times & the program is still there.  There's another one that won't uninstall & I imagine they're part of the same scam.  It's called "RegWork".

 

It seems like its locked up my wifes HP laptop.  We can run Internet Explorer, but no videos work & it won't let us install Adobe Flash. 

 

Also, we can't open ANY pics, docs, movies, etc.

 

Any other options?  Pretty frustrated as i think this program trick my wife into thinking it was a Microsoft option.
