I need major help with Systweak. I look in my Control Panel to see Systweak and RegClean Pro gone. I look in Program Files and Roaming to find Systweak there. I delete the folder. Since this is a shared computer, I log off of this user and another user signs on. When I sign back on my user, the Systweak folder is there again, after I deleted it. Control Panel still shows nothing. Any ideas on this?
