I was downloading uTorrent, and sadly enough, even though I never agreed to installing anything else, I ended up getting the Adaware Web Companion on my computer. When I launched my browser (Chrome), it said that it had been added, but I pressed remove instead. So as far as I can tell there is no harm done there.
I also believe I managed to uninstall it. Even though I went to applications and it said that there was no associated program with the file, luckily I was able to uninstall it via the startpanel. So, to my knowledge, this is now deleted off of my computer, but since I am no technician, and these types of programs are often sketchy, is there any way I can make sure that there are no leftovers that are going to turn my computer into a mong? Is it fine to trust the uninstall confirmation from the site/program?
