The Security Manager AV Defender was loaded on my computer without my consent, which intrudes on my privacy. If I want to uninstall the program it gives met the following error “The installation is protected by an administrative password, which doesn’t allow this product to be configured by an unauthorized user”. What must I do to get this program of my computer?
