    Hi,
    I made every step you advice to do here. I downloaded each program and analyze and all the things but the problem stay the same: There’s no way to uninstall or erase this shitty netstream program. Every time I try, they tell me I have to restart my computer to succeed the operation. But every time, netstream is still there. It’s a real nightmare.Could you still help me?
    Thanks.
