A question about how can you exactly uninstall uTorrent if you can find it in Uninstall Programs list (now called Apps & Features or Programs and Features)? How do you even remove it from PC?
Question described by Giephri
“A few days ago I did a clean install and redownloaded uTorrent (the latest version). The installer asked me to download some kind of suspicious program in order to install uTorrent itself. Naturally I declined and closed it. However, the idiot me decided to try again and clicked the installer a second time, and for some reason uTorrent opened up as if it was already installed. I know I closed it before it went through the installation progress, but I didn’t really care as long as I downloaded it without the suspicious program.
Today I found out that uTorrent pretty much became evil, but it was too late. After hearing this, I attempted to uninstall it but I couldn’t find it anywhere. It was nowhere to be found in the Uninstall settings. I looked for an uTorent folder in both Program File folders, AppData>Roaming. It didn’t even install onto the Start Menu or make a desktop icon. It just opens up regularly whenever I load a torrent file.
Can anyone please tell me how to get rid of it? And also I would appreciate any ways in confirming whether or not it installed any malware or coin miners into my PC. I scanned using Malwarebytes to find two PUPs called OpenCandy but I’m not sure if they’re related. I also used CCleaner and happily found uTorrent in Tools>Uninstall option. However, it gave me this error: “Error: 2 – The system cannot find the file specified”. I’m quite paranoid.”
