The Add/Remove Programs brings up Muvic's own uninstaller which asks which browser you want to "hide" it from. It doesn't remove it.

After you select Uninstall from the installed programs list, you have to go to custom to uninstall it. But even then, it still shows in the installed application list. I ultimately had to go to Regedit and remove all traces of it manually. Pernicious little f****r.
