    Hi Sean,
    I tried uninstalling the srpn files program in list of programs via Control panel. Once the file was right-clicked on, avast went through a lengthy process of analysis and ultimately said that the file was buried in Chest. However,it still appears on list of programs after repeated tries.
    In the meantime, once logging on to Google Chrome from computer startup, you get the web-start. org browser/search engine, listed as Homepage. I do not touch that, only clicking off after opening a second browser with Google as default then. Not sure how this came about. Any suggestions, Sean. Tx…Steve

    when i try to uninstall i get an error message that says it may have already been uninstalled. should i trust this message and remove the program from the programs n features list or?

      That usually means that the program is uninstalled. But, if you think your computer is infected with an unwanted program or malware I strongly suggest to scan your computer with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware software.

      You can also check to see if the program you uninstalled is removed from your computer by trying to locate the corresponding directory in this path: C:\Program Files (x86)

      If you can’t find the directory folder for the program you previously uninstalled it was probably removed properly.
