From another Forum.

Go to add/remove programs and uninstall Drivercare. Then go to "my Computer" and then click on the "C Drive" and click on "program files". Drivercare will be listed there under the name "paretologic" Delete paretologic and you will be done with drivercare. No more popups!!!!!!

Unfortunately after that you have to go to the registry and delete a few things on there.

If you can see it in add remove use Revo Uninstaller to remove it.Use settings 4 and only delete things in thick black.

Eventually it will give you a list with where it still has connections Files folders etc just click all and remove.

Control panel then add remove and see if it is in there.

r Start.Run.Type msconfig and see if it is ticked on start up in there ,if so untick it.

Or maybe download Malwarebytes and give that a run to see if it finds it.

This may help, DriveCure removal.

That is a bad site according to WOT.

It's maybe a false positive, in the past I had Wot flash up eBay as being a bad site these program's are nothing more than a nuisance but if he is concerned then Final Uninstaller can be had from here, which I assume is a good site.
