    Problems uninstalling Software

    I've had problems uninstalling software, I recently accidentally installed something called "findopolis" everytime I go to I'm always asked to install something anything... I've been trying to uninstall some of the software that I've inadvertently installed. and well, I' can't because I believe that one of those programs changed a setting, so whenever I try to uninstall anything I get a message saying that something else is being uninstalled.

    Can someone help me with this? I figured I'd just restart or sorry restore to an earlier point. If you have any suggestions.. Please let me know... thank you..
