  2. Hi, I am thinking maybe everyone has the same reason as I do, I can’t uninstall this because there isn’t an “uninstall” button as your pic shows. I tried updating it and repairing it thinking maybe I had a glitch, but still no button. I want to thank you for your article because I have been trying for hours thinking I was doing something wrong. It is good to know what the problem is now.
    Next issue is I originally had XP that updated to windows 10 on it’s own so I’m not sure how to put it in safe mode if it’s different now or not. Nothing has worked right since the upgrade. Thanks again for your article.
