I deleted Format Factory using obit uninstaller. Now when my pc boots up an edge window opens inviting me to download format factory. Edge is not on start up programs. Cannot find any format factory files left on pc. How do I stop this annoying ad please?

Ctrl Alt Del - task manger - startup tab - disable any links to format factory or edge.

right click link and show file location and you can delete from there.

Try using the free version of CCleaner and see if it appears in the startup items.

You could also try the registry cleaner in CCleaner that may ge rid of any left over registry keys from the unistal.
