Okay, so I was installing a sketchy program. It installed adaware on my PC without asking me, so I decided to just uninstall it, but it isn’t showing up. Nothing in program files either. So I removed that sketchy program using its uninstaller which worked, **but** AdAware still remained on my PC.
Noticable effects it did:
* Added itself to startup, couldn’t disable it
* Changed my search engine. When I put it back in a few minutes it sets it to Adaware secure search
* Auto-scans every reboot
Note: AdAware is the “ad removal” program, I didn’t make a typo, and it installed itself without asking
