This company is claiming to be an authorized Microsoft Partner that has loaded a program on my computer that I cannot uninstall. They tell me that for only $495 they will "fix" my system for one year or $109 for a one-time fee. I have refused to do so. As a result the program keeps reappearing It will not show up on my list of programs when I use the utility to uninstall it. Microsoft you should investigate them if they are claiming to be an authorized partner.
