@Amanda: Perhaps the program was bundled with some other download? I guess it should be possible to uninstall the program from the Windows Control Panel. If the entry in the Remove programs dialog is missing, you can remove it with FreeFixer.

Oh I found out how to remove it. Yay! Ok so you need to go to Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall Programs. Then once you are there, you need to find Fix My PC or PCtuner and uninstall it. This....whatever it is, must have been attached to a download or something. It's purpose is to download pop ups on your computer like probsalert. It is completely horrible, and someone should take legal actions against this company.

The program that contains Probsalert.exe is so persistent, you might not be able to uninstall the program by going to the Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs or Programs and Features. If that's the case, try going to the C:\Program Files or Program Files (x86)\Tuneup computer or Tuneup computer A1PCCleaner folder and delete that entire folder.

I too have had problems with Probsalert popping up. It asked me to support iexplorer, so I deleted iexplorer and for the moment it seems to have done the job.
