  1. can someone tell me how to remove movie wizard when it shows up in my list of programs on my contro panel but when i click on it and on uninstall it does nothing

    1. Use free Malwarebytes AntimalWare or Spyhunter – they should detect it. Movie Wizard installation folder is located here: C:\ProgramData\Movie Wizard but it won’t allow you to remove it. So you have 2 options – uninstall it in Safe Mode or use one of the programs mentioned above.
