    Well it turned out to be what I thought something you downloaded from the wrong link! At least this was a quick fix however.

    Mac OS Sierra

    Revo uninstaller works for removing all traces before having to install a troublesome piece of software also.

    It would be nice if they just went slim like a lot of installers and only install language other then OS on demand.

    Winrar doesn't need any uninstaller but easily tended to in the Programs & Features there unlike other small apps that hide on the drive. The problems is how their main page with download links for each country are jammed together like Sardines and how anyone could have easily hit the wrong link. Other sites would generally dropdown type selections for language, location much, OS being run(Windows, Mac, Linux-32/64bit) like what you see when using the MC tool to download 10. The other 3rd party download sites however generally have it in one language only which avoids all confusion.
