Hello @Profsimard, Welcome.

Is ‘Detect other Software that can be used...’ enabled?

 

 

Dear @Schulte, yes, it is enabled.

 

The application is called “YixSpeedup’’ and it prompts at start.

 

Now Microsoft Word does not open anymore.

I have error messages trying to access my Onedrive files on various accounts.

:-(

I am nervous to allow it to do modifications when clicking uninstall as I’ve read online that it is a bad idea. I got Kaspersky with the idea to use it to remove this thing safely.

Hi @Profsimard,

I don't want this program on my computer either.
Can you uninstall it via the Windows Control Panel?

If Kaspersky is running, you should be safe.

basically this happened to me a while ago. so basically u just have to open like the uninstall apps tab in control center i think and then select recently downloaded and u can see yixspeedup, click uninstall. this is good because when you search the name of the program in your files it doesnt appear but u can uninstall it like that! good luck!!
