Windows 10: Uninstalling a program only removes its entry from the list

    Uninstalling a program only removes its entry from the list


    Lately I've started having the following issue: When I click "Uninstall" in the "Uninstall or change program" utility in the control panel, it only removes the entry instantly, but nothing happens, and the program remains on the PC

    What is it?

    Thanks

    Try to run a virus scan such as malware bytes on your machine, could be an infection
