    Dear Sir, Recently whilst trying to update drivers, I somehow downloaded ‘iLivid’ which seems to have fowled up the computer.The computer will now not download anything.
    I have tried many ways of uninstalling this site with the aid of Google but to no avail. When trying to uninstall the site from Programs and Features, a notice comes up stating the iLivid is still downloading! When opening the Task Manager under Services, the site doesn’t appear.
    I have been trying to rid myself of this site for some days now, so any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
    Kind regards, Tom George
