how to uninstall TrayIcon.exe

I uninstalled PCMighty Max via Control Panel but pop ups keep coming back. I click End on process for TrayIcon.exe but it keeps coming back when I reboot. Any help. There are a lot of free software to remove but I'm hesitating because I might end up with the same thing, if not worse.

NOTE
: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it to install other software, you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

Hope this information helps you!

Besides using an anti-virus, also scan for Malware/spyware:

A very good antimalware app are SUPERAntiSpyware (SAS) and MalwareBytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) .
