Web companion program complete removal

Hi, I am having problems removing Web companion, at the moment I seem to have got rid of most of it but 2-3 minutes after boot up this error sign appears. “ The type initializer for web companion.UI appcore.service .installerservice threw an exception” This appears to slow the boot process on my laptop which has an SSD installed and I have gone from a relitivley fast boot to a longer boot time. Having done some research online the advice offered was to use Total uninstaller but this is costly and it may not work, well that’s my thinking. Some advice please,

You could try re-installing it then using IOBit Uninstaller to get rid of it again. It does a more thorough job than the built in Windows uninstaller.

Ctl- Alt -Del look in the start up tab and disable any references to the program, look in the services tab if you see it in there open services an highlight it and stop it change the startup type to disabled.

reboot and retry.

when you have successfully removed it make sure their is no entry in start menu (msconfig) or pc will hang at boot up looking for it.
