Windows 10 - SlimCleaner Plus, unable to uninstall it

Original Title : sunnylady44

I have an Asus computer.  Upgraded to Windows 10 when it first became available have had nothing but grief ever since….

I downloaded SlimCleaner Plus

It won't let me uninstall it

Have left it running for an entire day for system scan.  Scan hasn't gone beyond Optimizer, just shows the gear continously circling at the Optimizer.

Even though the scan hasn't completed I received the following scan results for 2 drivers out of date:

Realtek PCle GBE Family Controller - out of date

AMD High Definition Audio Device


Maybe too late to ask but is SlimCleaner Plus something I even want on my computer?  If not then how can I uninstall it?

If it is safe to leave on what purpose does it serve?

Lastly if I should leave it installed then should I download the updates for these two drivers?


See the Windows 8 uninstall instructions at that link - Windows 10 is similar.

You right click on the SlimDriver Icon near the clock and select EXIT.
