Problem Summary: PC Performer

I paid for the software online and input the licence key to the registry. The first thing I noticed was that when I ran the program it said I had no errors, but before I paid for it used to say I had so many errors. Next it slowed down my computer and did not allow me to go online. When I tried to uninstall it would not allow me too. I then shut down my computer and rebooted tapping esc button. When it came back on I could not find the PC Performer. Does that mean it has gone from my computer? I can't find it anywhere. Is it possible for it to change in anyway to hide on my computer?

Problem was successfully solved. Ticket was closed.
