After removing the program and directory I set up two user profiles without admin rights and rebooted the machine. The machine rebooted without a problem and we didn't have that crapware running on the machine.
You can read more at the wiki site about this program and how to remove it.
A few observations if you run windows:
- Keep your virus software and trojan scanners up-to-date.
- Keep you machine fully patched.
- Don't blindly download and install programs. Do your homework and check it out before installing.
- Do not use the 'ADMIN' account. Create a normal user with no rights to add/change/delete programs.
- Keep a good set of backups and backup on a regular basis.
