  1. This helped, because when I went to other websites it made me install other things like WebDiscover, but those you could remove easily. So, this helped me A LOT.

  2. How do I remove the leftover black thing on the top? I deleted it just fine and this was useful but there is a rectangle that is stuck. I am unable to do anything to remove it. Any ideas?
