    Note, Anvi Uninstaller will not uninstall this program. I’ve tried to do that several times with it, and it always stalls in the middle.

    • Ivy_Anvisoft

      Hi Bill,

      Could you please try to uninstall the program from your computer directly via your control panel?

      • http://blog.billsamuel.net/ BillSamuel

        Yes, that worked.

        • Ivy_Anvisoft

          That’s nice.

    Hello!

    It does not work for me, because when I’m trying o uninstall it, it just does not work. The uninstall is not happening.
    A little bit of help?

    • Ivy_Anvisoft

      Hi,

      Do you get any error message when you try to uninstall the program?

    • DizzS

      It would not uninstall for me either, I ended up going into My Computer > Hard drive/c: > Program Files, Then delete the weDownload folder completely. Follow the other steps on this page as well and it should work.

      • Ivy_Anvisoft

        Hi Dizzs,

        It may come back again if you only delete the weDownload manager folder from the hard drive.

        If you still get the same problem, could you please try the revo uninstaller to uninstall the wedownload manager adware program?

        http://www.revouninstaller.com/

        You can download and use the trial version.

  • Hank Mardukas

    None of these options have worked for me!

    • Ivy_Anvisoft

      Hi Hank,

      Do you mean you can not find the malicious program and remove it? Or do you mean you can not remove it manually or with the program Anvi Uninstaller?

    malicious program, click on the expand button,
    and then select to disable it, after that, please click on the Location
    button and delete all the files in the program folder.

    Then, please go to Service tab, find
