I downloaded the Wondershare pdf tool under the impression that it was free (it isn't). Removed the programme but was then left with the pop-up. Seems harmless but is hugely annoying.

@joe: Give FreeFixer a try to see if it shows any WonderShare file in the scan result. If so, you can check it for removal.

Every time at start-up, I get two 'Wondershare Helper: ASHelper.exe-Entry Point Not Found 'in succession. My pc is completely made save by the latest AVG pro software. (This errors started after I removed two YouTube copy trail software that I did not want to purchase I THINK) Can you please give me a hint in what this exe files is specified for and what program before I download any further software to solve this problem?
Thank you, and bless you

@Hugo: I don't what the purpose of WShelper.exe is. But it appears to come with the Wondershare software.

I think that the error message that you see will disappear if you uninstall the Wondershare software. You can probably find it in the "Remove programs" dialog in the Windows Control Panel.

Thanks Rodger. There was no such software. I reformatted my whole drive by re-installing my operating software and other software as an whole. Alls fine now. I think that came about as a left-over probably from a uninstalled Snappy Driver Updater freeware. Thanks anyways
Have a great day
